Why Scott Adams would be the worst politician ever — or best

If that Dilbert cartooning gig doesn’t work out, I think Scott Adams should run for office. He’d never win (and he explains why) but it would sure beat the depressing $40 million senatorial campaign we’ve experienced here in Tennessee.

Sidenote: The study reported in Slate on which Scott bases some of the planks of his campaign platform gets the Freakonomics treatment from Steven D. Levitt who is a bit skeptical of the empirical result. Me too, but I’d still want to get an Adams bumper sticker.
