Dilbert Creator Scott Adams Endorses Mitt Romney For the Stupidest Possible Reason
Dilbert creator Scott Adams is a rich white man who has turned his allegiance to Mitt Romney — I'll give you a moment to regain your composure. Okay. On Wednesday, Adams wrote a mildly coherent blog post explaining why he will be voting for Mitt Romney in November, one that starts with a hypothetical situation that includes the phrase, "For the record, President Obama did not technically kill anyone to get elected."
After clearing that up, Adams says that he will not be voting for Barack Obama because of how the president has dealt with legal marijuana dispensaries in California. He goes onto cite the case of Aaron Sandusky (no relation, hopefully), the owner of a dispensary in Southern California who was sentenced to 10 years to life in prison in October. Adams calls this a "fireable offense," which, hey, fair enough. There are many legitimate reasons to not vote for Obama, and his continuation of the War on Drugs is certainly among them.
But then Adams goes onto explain why he is also endorsing Mitt Romney, instead of, I don't know, hitting "publish" and going to run errands:
Romney is likely to continue the same drug policies as the Obama administration. But he's enough of a chameleon and a pragmatist that one can't be sure.
So, there you have it: vote for Mitt Romney because you're not sure what he will do, even if he is, for example, an outspoken opponent of medical marijuana. Personally, I've taken Adams' reasoning to heart and will also be voting for Mitt Romney as well, because he may erase my student loans and, let's see, personally fund the Party Down movie? That's real change.
