Conservative Abominable Conjunctions

It is odd how conservatives can, with all earnestness, argue for a proposition while holding contradictory positions. Here are some example abominable conjunctions:

Global Warming (AKA Massive Climate Disruption) is false because:
The Earth is naturally warming AND The Earth isn’t warming at all.

Only torture will make Al-Qaeda members talk AND We didn’t really torture.

Unfortunately, in the latter case, many conservatives have simply embraced the position of torture. I prefer the abominable conjunction to the disgustingly immoral position of being pro-torture. At least they had the decency to feign morality. Now, they have no shame.
