You might think I’m kidding, but no, I really would like to see Scott Adams elected President of the United States in 2008. Why? Just read his blog and you’ll see that he really “gets it” when it comes to so many of the world’s problems. For example, in his latest entry titled Defeating Terrorism with Good Mileage, he writes:
If someone is fanatical enough to fund terrorism, do you think THAT’S the part of his budget he cuts first? What part of “living in caves in the mountains of Pakistan” is compatible with “we’ll only do this as long as the money comes easily”?
And how expensive is terrorism anyway? Their last attack could have been accomplished with Bonus Miles and a few box cutters. Is there somewhere a would-be terrorist on a tight budget who is thinking “As soon as I save enough money for a box of nails, I will complete my exploding belt”?
The corresponding full-color illustration of this point ran yesterday, on February 19, 2006.
Don’t be a fool. Learn what “fungible” means, and make sure you help elect Scott Adams for President in 2008. It’s your civic duty. Don’t let the terrorists win and all that jingoistic yadda-yadda bullshit.
