This week Sunday, 5/14, Scott Adams - already famous for not only predicting a Trump win but endorsing him as the best candidate in the large primary field - doubled down: a cartoon promoting AGW denial, by dredging up and dressing up an old wingnut canard about AGW alarmists. Haven't got a link yet, but it should be easy to find by Sunday night. Two question rise immediately: the first, let's call it the Dennis Miller question, belongs in Art and Culture: will he still be funny? It's not an idle question - the list of people who were funny, bought into a Republican thug meme in public, and were seldom if ever funny again, is with one exception I know of (Ann Coulter, who was evil from jump) the same as the list of people who were funny and bought into a Republican thug meme in public. He's bucking the odds here. (Note: the Bluecollar Comedy guys, Foxworthy @ Co, don't actually buy into Republican thug memes in public). the second, let's call it the Cubicle World question, belongs here: Why do techies and corporate minions, people who work in cubicles and corporate offices, disproportionately among the intellectual and educated classes of America, have so much trouble following biological and ecological arguments? These are often very intelligent people. Scott Adams is no dummy. So what derails his brain in these circumstances?
