"I'm a baby because you're two-faced!"

A few days ago I posted on San Francisco's ban on outdoor smoking. Bill Whalen in the Weekly Standard yesterday filed a piece about the city's board of supervisors, "Where the Inmates Run the Asylum", noting the ban and listing a few other instances of fun in the Bay area;

In a rare episode where common sense prevailed, the board rejected a $100,000 aid package for tsunami victims--after an initial proposal of $1 million in city aid. These gestures of charity came at a time when San Francisco faces a budget shortfall just shy of $100 million. All of which prompted a comical exchange between two supervisors sitting two chairs apart--Chris Daly (author of the relief proposal) and Jake McGoldrick (who voted against it, prompting Daly to claim he was double-crossed)--whose juvenile tone sounded more like Beevis and Butthead than two city leaders butting heads.

McGoldrick: How come you gotta act like a baby?
Daly: How come you're two-faced? I'm a baby because you're two-faced!
McGoldrick: You know where you can kiss, don't you, Chris?
Daly: Yeah, I'll kiss your ass. Right after I kick it.

Is that a syllogism? "...act like a baby...you're two-faced...ergo, I'm a baby because you're two-faced."

There's a whole generation with a new explanation...
