I stand for 1. Truth, 2. Justice, and the 3. American Way. Being correct is Tertiary.

So you're saying... Being correct is the American Way?

I'm not sure that's right. :(

Yeah, this is all very confusing.

This list of priority makes sense until point 3 which is where it all falls apart. I think the punctuation is what's messing it up. Also, the word "tertiary" means "third in order or level" according to a quick google. Therefore, "being correct" would be part of the American Way, according to definition, which is obviously incorrect. However, because of punctuation it's presented as if the first 3 items on the list take priority over being correct.

Which would make sense, since the "American Way" is to be boastfully incorrect about most things...but then would make the tertiary point redundant.

The true paradox is that his statement states that being correct is tertiary...but with so many incorrect points in his statement, it thus becomes correct.
