The straw that broke the camels back I suppose.



That whole line of reasoning at the Daily Kos is not reasoning at all, it's illogical. It argues a modal fallacy to its death.

Inferring that because something is true, it is necessarily true. A statement is considered necessarily true if and only if it is impossible for the statement to be untrue and that there is no situation that would cause the statement to be false.

The danger of this fallacy is can lead one to conclude that the future is already set, it excludes the possibility that a middle could exist. It attempts to suppresses an argument from free will.
