2009 Legislative Session: Pragmatic Approach is Good Politics

So says the January 5, 2009 Eye on the Capitol press release by John Huebscher, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Catholic Conference.
St. Thomas Aquinas often noted, "Virtue stands in the middle." Politicians rarely quote saints in floor debates. But the hard reality of the 2009 legislative session is that the middle of the political spectrum will probably be a good place to be for those interested in getting things done.

There's no denying that both the first and last of these sentences contain the word "middle", though it would take more than that to make the paragraph a syllogism.
