    Except that Drumpf was a public figure (in many different mediums) long before this. Palin was a mayor of a backwater town who failed at everything she tried.

          I just started reading blog.dilbert.com; it's pretty funny (snarky). I like how he has "endorsed" Hillary "for his personal safety". I found that snarkiness reading this NYP article claiming Hillary is putting Trump in danger.

            You are wrong. That diagnosis comes from people who have had years of intimate contact with him, including the guy who wrote "The Art of the Deal" for him. In this case, it's on point: Trump isn't a Machiavelli. He isn't evil or crazy. He's morally deficient in a way doctors have been studying for a century.

              You are not correct. He's a garden variety sociopath with two notable characteristics:

              1. He won the birth lottery.
              2. He broke the 4th Commandment.

                Trump is like 99% of older conservatives. For the billionth time, he won the nomination because he represents the base of the party.

                So if he's nuts, so is the 40%+ of the country that reflexively votes Republican in Presidential elections. Or that's voting for him this time around. He's a salesman. People in sales tell you what you want to hear, assume no risk of their own, and have no problem selling you something you don't need. Sounds a lot like the Trump campaign.

                      Master persuaders as Scott Adams defines them:

                      My prediction from last year – that Trump would win the general election in a landslide – was based on his persuasion advantage. That advantage is largely gone now because Clinton has evidently hired some weapons-grade Master Persuaders and moved to a purely emotional appeal, specifically fear. And it is working.

                        Scott Adams is a ten-year-old at a fireworks show, getting all worked up about details that are a foregone conclusion to anyone with a social IQ of room temperature. "Master Persuaders" my ***, they're just politicians. I know 10 used car salesmen that are more impressive.

                          Scott Adams is a ******. He's ****ed his political rantings have significantly cut into his corporate speaking fees. Because shockingly, people don't hire the Dilbert guy to hear his politics.

                            Adams is part of the Orson Scott Card Club: people who are intriguing and subtle in their personal field whose politics is childish and inane. John Derbyshire is another member. Donald Kagan, too.
