I know it’s hard to pick just one neocon to make Nate look like, because there are so many who are so wrong on everything, yet still get listened to.

There’s a little screen in the elevator where I work that displays ads, weather reports, stocks-related stuff, and incredibly inane bullshit “leadership tweets” from CEOs and “leaders.” They are all one flavor or another of “Try pretending your peons have something useful to say!
