Albert Einstein and the Hidden Menace of the November Election

A couple of weeks ago we brought Nikola Tesla back from the dead to answer some questions about the iPhone 7. This time, we’re bringing the ghost of Albert Einstein back to help us out because we’ve become very stupid and we could use some help.

Great Britain and the Queen

Let’s get one thing straight, right off the bat. In case you were wondering, the Queen has NOT asked us to write in her name on November’s Ballot and restore British Rule. It’s in Snopes. Although the Brits are happy that we’ve become so silly that it might distract the world from Brexit.

On Having Only Two Choices

Since Einstein is here for only a short amount of time, let’s ask him what he thinks.

Us: So, do you mind if we call you Al?

Einstein: Please, go right ahead.

Us: Do you think we might need other choices for this president?

Al: As a human being, one has been endowed with just enough intelligence to be able to see clearly how utterly inadequate that intelligence is when confronted with what exists.

Us: We thought so, too.

He Who Must Not Be Named

Us: So, Al, do you think that the Republican candidate is a little bit like He Who Must Not Be Named from Harry Potter?

Al: Nationalism is an infantile sickness. It is the measles of the human race.

Us: We’re putting you down as a yes.

Al: Ok.

The Future of Education

Us: So, Al, If He Who Must Not Be Named wins the election, does that mean that any and all education is doomed?

Al: The aim of education must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals who, however, see in the service to the community their highest life problem.

The Unnamed One and Twitter

If He Who Must Not Be Named uses Twitter for his rants, does that mean that Twitter is somehow diminished?

Al: “The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

Us: Ok, but did you see Jon Stewart turn his Twitter rant with him into a stand-up routine?

Al: That was funny.

Us: So we should vote wisely this November?

Al: Ayup.

How Should We Vote, Then?

Us: So, any advice on how we should vote in the election?

Al: A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future.

Us: Are you saying “Don’t worry, be happy?”

Al: Never underestimate the stupidity of the American electorate.

Us: Gotcha.

There You Have it!

If the smartest man, er–ghost, ever can’t sway your vote, who can? Leave me a comment about the election and how you’re managing to stay sane.



  1. Too cute, thanks.

  2. Loving this “bring back from the dead” series.

    Maybe you could bring back Sun Tzu and ask him what he thinks of Pokemon Go.

    Actually, don’t do that.

    • I really like that idea, Clement! Sun Tzu and Pokemon Go! That would be awesome.

      Do you think Sun Tzu wouldn’t have liked Pokemon Go, though?

      Thanks for the great fodder.


  3. I thought Al was pretty clear in endorsing He Who Must Not Be Named!
    Who would have thunked that?

  4. Another good one! I love this series! Who are you going to talk to next?

    I have had to tune out a lot of so called news on the election. I voted today. It was weird because it’s by mail or drop off ballot box. I miss actually going into vote and getting my “I voted” sticker!

    Thanks for the fun post!

    • Hi Justine,

      I like going into the ballot box and voting the old-school way! I like talking to people there and getting the sticker, too!

      I’m not sure who will come and visit us next! It was fun talking to Albert Einstein. I guess he knows a thing or two.
