Scott Adams is a remarkably smart man. Good to have an overseas perspective too:

Wow, it's a good thing I can separate an artist from his art, because Adams is a first class idiot.

LIberal definition of "idiot"=Anyone who sees things differently from them.

See also other invective, like "racist", "sexist", "homophobe", "almostanyflavorphobe", etc.

Insults, letting liberals hate guilt free since at least 1980.

I prefer "Lunatic"

All this stuff about persuaders and positive affirmation shaping reality is a tad nutty.

Very smart indeed. It turns out that Trump obliterated Clinton in every possible way, which explains his complete dominance in polling numbers across the nation.

Yet another masterstroke by the greatest persuasive mind of my lifetime. Without a doubt, Mr. Trump has a date with Mount Rushmore.

Kudos, Steven, for bringing this amazing slice of political analysis to my attention.

The persuasion move was that he quickly contrasted that “small” issue with images of ISIS beheadings, and cage-drownings. It was a high ground maneuver, a powerful visual anchor...

Trump’s pre-debate show with Bill’s alleged victims dismantled Clinton’s pro-woman high ground before the debate even started.

His comment about putting Clinton in jail has that marvelous visual persuasion quality about it, and it was the laugh of the night

We don’t know how to fix Obamacare or what to do with TPP. But by acting competent on these and other policy issues, Trump gains more than Clinton in persuasion.


WTF?

I think my idiot charge is well-founded.

Exactly right. If Scott Adams had been writing about the awesomeness of Hillary this summer, the left here would have been exclaiming how bright and smart he is. But he is guilty of thought-crime. Time for the two-minutes hate.

Adams loves Trump because, like Trump, Adams is a rich white racist misogynist straight male who hates paying taxes, worships capitalism and wants to "take his country back". Additionally, he writes ridiculous things to try and get more attention, page views and book sales. Fuck Scott Adams. Fuck him with Dogbert's dick.

No actually that would be the sobriquet of someone supporting a man who allowed Howard Stern sexually objectify his own daughter.

So sad that the alt right allowed this pile of human excrement to be their spokesperson, but in a sense that does seem fitting

After reading the OP link and the other one on Clinton, I think it's better than even odds Adams is not being serious in the slightest.

So in essence, Scott Adams is telling us Trump won, not due to an actual mastery of foreign policy and economic material but by "appearing" to know more than he really did. Apparently, Scott Adams feels those who support or are persuaded by Trump simply don't appreciate the difference between the two. Should Trump supporters really be happy with this piece?

Right out of Orwell.

And it was the logical end of Left wing totalitarian tendencies he exactly was directing this at.

I agree. He must think he was being clever. It would have been better if it was funny, but sadly, it wasn't.

If we move this discussion to a different thread, do you think these two would notice? Or would they be so busy patting each other on the back that they'd think they were a crowd of two?

Economic theory. Human nature. The art of persuasion. The ability to converse. And now... humor. Is there no end to your fount of utter ignorance?

Thank you for your input.

You elevate the proceedings above the muck and mire, rest assured.

...he says because Adams finds Hillary repulsive.

If he supported Hillary you'd repost every week or so.

That's an interesting charge, that Adams is a racist.

He might be, he might not be. In this context though racism would be meaningless, I think you meant to say "sexist".

Either way, got anything to back that up or is that just Standard Liberal Tactic #3 again?
