    I think it’s a brilliant move. Feigning support for the violent mob, then voting their handlers out of office.


    I’d like to state my full support of biden here and now as well. He is our only hope for restoring order. :puking: Damn, I couldn’t do it without vomiting, I’ll work on that to better sell the narrative.

    Perhaps the punctuation was a bit off in the statement ,"...he does not vote, or identify as a member of any political party." I took that as meaning he does not vote along party lines because he holds no party affiliation. An independent thinker, in other words. I'm sure he votes, he seems too politically aware not to.

    Anybody familiar with Scott Adams and has followed his channel expects his comments to contain a fair amount of dry satirical humor. It's meant as entertainment, but in a thought-provoking way. As such, I took his "endorsement" completely as satire. His endorsement means nothing unless he backs it up with campaign contributions.

    chances are he was going to vote for Biden anyway. just trying to get some publicity. So Joe gets 1 vote.

    It was. The left-is violent, willing to use anything against anyone who is not following lockstep. (So a strip 17 yrs ago that might be considered racist by those unable to understand his strip) might be used to tarnish his reputation, cause his speaking engagements to be cancelled...
    To me it’s a “I will say I support Biden, under duress”
    My understanding what you do, say under duress is not legally binding.
    (Of course this isn’t a legal statement, he is not under imminent duress). But you should get idea.

    Or he could keep his mouth shut and vote his true conscience. But maybe Biden is his man and he's lying to keep his conservative readers.

    Coward either way.

    So basically he is a sarcastic *****.

    I think he could use a Dementia Joe administration as inspiration fir a whole slew of cartoons...

    I think it's very funny! If you don't get it, I'm assuming you're not familiar with his work or past comments. In a clever way, he's pointing out the thuggery of the Left.

    But does it count when he says he's doing it for self-protection instead of support for Biden? Some of the yutes might see it for what it is and his "support" loses its power.

    Doubt too many yutes even know of Dilbert, let alone Scott Adams' blog. So it is I doubt too many will "get it" Or care to. Ya might have to think about Adams' message in one fashion or another which is not "funny" to most who have not worked "cubicle" work or dealt with corporate mindset.

    More to amuse his readers that do enjoy fine sarcasm on display... maybe? (more cognitive dissonance on display - Biden's mind is gone, I'll vote for Biden/safety)

    Well, I find it amusing. YMMV

    This is a very funny joke.

    Sorry if you dont get it.

    In the cubicle world, in order to survive you have to pretend to go along with management even when you know it is clearly moronic.
