The Right and Left Join Forces to Condemn That Scott Adams and Jake Tapper Have Joined Forces

In a prime example of “no good deed goes unpunished,” fans of both cartoonist Scott Adams

Business Insider editor and Gawker alum John Cook made the remark while commenting on CNN host Jake Tapper’s guest drawing in the September 23 edition of Dilbert.

Adams responded by apparently threatening legal action in a now-deleted tweet…
