  • Being Memorable (Trump)

    In other news, Trump quickly (too quickly) suggested that the lost Egyptian jet was a victim of terrorism before anyone had good information about it. If he turned out to be wrong, we would forget it in a week. But if he turned out to be right, he looks like the smart one, and the leader. It was a good gamble. Clinton is playing the follower today, as terrorism is now the top assumption. It made her look slow in the leadership department, and a terrorism denier. This is another case in which acting presidential was a losing campaign strategy.

    Scott Adams' Blog Dilbert ^ | Posted May 17th, 2016 | Scott Adams
    As I said, predicting a VP choice is nearly impossible until the last minute because the situation is fluid. A candidate might need some help in a key state, based on current polling. Or the opponent might open up a new line of attack that needs a defense. A lot can change in a few weeks. But as of today, and according to the Master Persuader filter, I put the odds at 90% than Trump picks Brown as his running mate.

    The Clinton campaign came out with a new attack ad against Trump that features a number of Republicans trash-talking him. Let’s evaluate it for persuasiveness... On an emotional level, I experienced a wave of pity for Clinton while watching the ad. I mean that literally. Her advisers seem blind to the tools of persuasion. Other people who were blind to Trump’s powers of persuasion include Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Carly Fiorina. None of them will be your next president.

    I give Clinton a 50% chance of making it to November with sufficiently good health to be considered a viable president. Judging from her performance on the campaign trail, she is managing her health effectively to get the job done. But I would think most people who run for president end up sacrificing their health in some measure. The big question is how much buffer she has left.

    Scott Adams remembers just how the game turned. He was young and improving at chess, but the masterful kid across the board would outmaneuver Adams till the game seemed a runaway. Now, this kid didn't want to just beat Adams; he wanted to embarrass him. "So after he'd picked away three-fourths of my pieces and I was discouraged," Adams recounts, "he would offer to turn the board around and play with my pieces." And then effectively "win" again. On those occasions, Adams, the creator of "Dilbert," got insight into the type of personality that loves not only the challenge of...

Apparently nothing that Trump says comes off as offensive to her. The reason I checked with a woman is because I didn’t trust my own reaction.

    The GOP candidates for president had a boring debate last night. My one-word summary is “capitulation.” Based on the energy on stage, it seems they stopped fighting. That means Trump can stroll to the nomination, assuming Florida goes as expected. Trump’s only objective at the debate was to avoid looking out of control. He said in advance that he could do so easily unless the other candidates attacked him. And then his opponents did not attack him. That’s acceptance of the final result. Capitulation.

Some of you asked me how this move by Trump could possibly be a smart thing. On the 2D playing field, Trump appears petulant and whiney. Maybe narcissistic, fascist, and a little bit of Hitler too.

    Donald Trump has a way with words—and with people.

Scott Adams, prolific author, blogger, and creator of the massively popular comic strip Dilbert, has a different theory. He tells Reason TV's Zach Weissmueller that the media are being trolled by a skilled manipulator, or in Adams's parlance, a Master Wizard. So exquisite does Adams believe Trump's skills to be that he predicts The Donald will go on to win the presidency.

David Steward was fired from the Catfish Bend Casino because management found the cartoon "very offensive," human resources director Steve Morley testified at a recent unemployment benefits hearing. The casino had challenged his claim for unemployment benefits. "Basically, he was accusing the decision-makers of being drunken lemurs," Morley testified. "We consider that misconduct when you insult your employer." According to state records, Steward posted the comic in late October,...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- "Dilbert" comic strip creator Scott Adams called his weekend wedding aboard a yacht in the San Francisco Bay "tremendous," but said he doesn't expect to win a dance competition anytime soon. Adams, 49, and Shelly Miles, 37, were married Saturday evening on the Commodore Galaxy yacht by the ship's captain. About 150 guests attended the ceremony. It's the first marriage for Adams and the second for Miles. The couple met at Adams' health club four years ago.
