Go, Read: Analysis Of Scott Adams As Political Soothsayer

I'm not interested in new permutations of what the cartoonist Scott Adams has to say about the presidential campaign, because that attention eventually descended into an act of cruelty, but I liked this write-up of what he's said thus far and why: it comes across as reasonable and clear-headed even when Adams doesn't. I think the branding is interesting: why wouldn't the man who sold that many people on Dilbert and whose subject matter is office shenanigans have something to say of interest about the way a celebrity businessman candidate works his rhetoric? There is a reminder at the race-crash end of the article that the rational parts of what Adams is selling only stick around for part of the ride.
