The Artist behind “Dilbert” is a Democrat — but says he’s voting for Romney.
The doodler is blaming the Obama administration for enforcing federal drug laws that earned Aaron Sandusky, a 41-year-old from Southern California, a 10-year prison term for running a medical marijuana dispensary.
“While President Obama didn’t technically kill a citizen, he is certainly ruining this fellow’s life, and his family’s lives, and the lives of countless other minor drug offenders,” Adams wrote. “And he is doing it to advance his career. If that’s not a firing offense, what the hell is?”
People are still reading Dilbert?
Hold up for a second. While Obama’s faced some understandable criticism over his handling of medical marijuana laws, the prior president spent millions of dollars investigating and prosecuting Tommy Chong for running a business that sold bongs — not even the drug themselves — because the administration wanted to set a high-profile example. Romney has a far tougher stance on this issue than Obama does, and he’s on the record for saying “I’m going to fight it tooth and nail.” If this is what’s going to make Scott Adams bend, why isn’t he voting for Gary Johnson? He actually has a platform that runs counter to either of the two candidates.
(Side note: Scott Adams is complaining about media outlets misrepresenting what he’s said on the blog post. If you’re going to complain, Scott, then give a better reason for voting for Romney than claiming “he’s enough of a chameleon and a pragmatist that one can’t be sure” he’ll stick with a tough marijuana policy. Saying we’re going to fire a president for something the other candidate is likely to also do is no way to deal with a problem. If you think we’re taking you out of context, too, it’s because you’ve created a terrible context.)
