Scott Adams, creator of "Dilbert," this summer predicted Donald Trump would win the Republican nomination, and win the presidency in a landslide. Adams based that on reading Trump's seven books. Adams has an MBA in economics and management from the University of California, Berkeley, which indicates he knows a little bit about marketing and organization. Adams differs from the Beltway Boys not only by education and location, but in viewing politics. They see it in two dimensions; he sees it in three, noting: "The third dimension is emotion and persuasion, not reason."
You have seen the advertisements for listicles of "Actors who aged horribly." I always wonder what the compiler looks like. Well, everyone knows what I look like, so here is my listicle of actors who went from good-looking to ugly. Includes Carrie Fisher.

The worst journalistic crime is to pawn off Opinion as straight news. Few people in the business commit this crime as often as Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post, who packages his rebuttals of political opinions as "fact checks."
Don't take my word for it. Clive Crook, a senior editor at the extremely liberal Atlantic Monthly, called for the Washington Post to fire Kessler not because Kessler attacked Obama but because of an attack on Mitt Romney.
"When a fact is wrong, it's not some number of Pinocchios, it's just wrong," Crook wrote. And then he ripped Kessler apart.

Why are we told that it's OK to bring in lettuce and tomatoes from unregulated farms but we cannot bring brand-name drugs across the border?— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) November 25, 2015
@donsurber Bernie Sanders blocked me! Woo hoo.— Don Surber (@donsurber) November 26, 2015
If he gets elected, IRS comes after me, right?
UPDATE: I am now a Twitter Legend!
Michael Barone has a terrific piece, "Which Party Will Emerge From Its Gathering Storm?" He calmly lays out the peril in 2016 each party faces.
For Republicans, it is Trump and evangelical Christians.
For Democrats, it is Obama
The gathering storm for the Democrats may be less visible to mainstream media but looms nevertheless. It was apparent in last week's House vote on pausing the entry of 10,000 Syrian refugees, when 47 Democrats joined 242 Republicans to form a veto-proof majority against the president's position.
In his press conference in Antalya, Turkey, President Obama gave perfunctory assurances that the 10,000 Syrian refugees could be adequately screened, and he intimated that those who oppose his policy are un-American bigots.
But after administration officials briefed House Democrats on those screening procedures, many were reportedly driven to switch and oppose the administration position.Barone lightly touched on the problem of Black Lives Matter, which are Black Power bullies who dare white people to oppose them. So far no one wants to be called racist, and so this group grows in influence.
But in the privacy of the voting booth, the pandering to a small slice of black America may cost Democrats dearly.
She could have aborted him. That is legal. Some churches say it is moral.
But she did not.
A wailing newborn baby was found with its umbilical cord attached inside a nativity scene at a Queens church, police say.
The baby was discovered by a maintenance worker at the Holy Child Jesus Church in Richmond Hill Monday at about noon, according to the New York Police Department.It is a miracle.
Police are investigating. Why? None of their damned business who the mother is. New York state has a Safe Haven Law that allow mothers to give up their babies at certain places, no questions asked.
They say we should wait until after Thanksgiving to put up Christmas decorations. Thank God that Holy Child Jesus Church ignored that.
Remember Flying Toasters? They were the most popular screen savers in the 1990s and they made hundreds of millions of bucks for multi-millionaires Joan Blades and Wes Boyd. When President Clinton faced the very real prospect of removal from office for committing perjury in a sexual harassment case, Joan Blades and Wes Boyd used their vast wealth to form the propagandist front "Move On" to popularize the false notion that he merely "lied" about sex.
If Bill Clinton lost his job ignobly, Hillary Clinton's career was cooked. So Move On saved her bacon.
Here is how she repaid the group.

Kaley Cuoco has a three-word message for people thinking about tattooing their wedding date on their backs:
Ouch, ouch, ouch.OK, her actual tweet was: "Note to self - do not mark your body with any future wedding dates. #under30mistakes #donttakeyourselftooseriouslykids"
She tattooed over it, following her divorce.
Thursday marks Thanksgiving, a time when people look at President Lincoln's proclamations of Thanksgiving during the Civil War.
But he also proclaimed a Day of Fast -- a Day of Humiliation and Prayer, which was April 30, 1863, when the prospects for the Union looked bleak.
For eight years, President Obama conducted a War Against Fox News. The press did not protest -- in fact many cheered the attempt to shut down critics of His Majesty.
This summer, Hillary Clinton roped off reporters. There was a little grumbling.
Now the press is openly attacking Donald Trump for refusing to cooperate with hostile reporters.
Yes, we know what side the press is on.
