Another case occurred several days ago. In that case the writer was criticizing another commentator’s suggestion that Dick Cheney had implicitly admitted to crimes. The criticizer goes step by step through the things Cheney said, in none of which does Cheney admit to crimes, but merely admits to acts that one might suppose were criminal, and the criticizer says these are explicit admissions. My head spun, because this is a textbook example of an implicit admission.
Maybe I’m a player in a political satire and just don’t know it.
