Palin: An argument isn't just contradiction.

Cleese: It can be.

Palin: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.


Palin: Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of any statement the other person makes.
