  3. This speech is full of bias, fallacies and rhetorical devices. From the very start of this speech, Kane uses bias against the governor Jim W. Gettys. The campaigner says β€œrid the politics of this state of the evil domination of Boss Jim Gettys.” This is showing that Kane is using political bias. The campaigner makes Kane out to be the ally for the common man. The campaigner clearly has an argument but no facts to support his claim.
    β€œWith one purpose only: to point out and make public the dishonesty, the downright villainy of Boss Jim W. Gettys.” This statement is bias and uses the rhetorical device Hyperbole. Some would say that it is an exaggeration.
    β€œI had no campaign promises, because until a few weeks ago I had no hope of being elected.” This is an argument that has no facts to support it.
    β€œNow however, I have something more than hope. And Jim Gettys – Jim Gettys has something less than a chance.” This is an argument that has no supporting facts and it is also the fallacy Ad Hominen.
    β€œThe working man – The working man and the slum child know they can expect my best efforts in their interests.” This statement is ethnic bias. I also think it is the rhetorical device Paradox.
    β€œThe decent, ordinary citizens know that I’ll do everything in my power to protect the underprivileged, the underpaid, and the underfed.” This statement is the rhetorical device Alliteration. I also feel that this statement continues the ethnic bias.
    β€œWell, I’d make my promises now if I weren’t too busy arranging to keep them.” This statement is the rhetorical device Paradox.
    I am not sure of what rhetorical device it would be but I am pretty sure that making promises is a rhetorical device of some sort.
