A New Law of the Internet

I'm proposing a new law of the Internet. We can call it Dadvocate's law, Dad's law or Newton's law (since Newton is my actual last name). Maybe I'll achieve Internet immortality.

The law: As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of blaming George Bush approaches 1.

My inspiration (James Kelly's comment at 12:32 PM, May 30, 2010).

Apologies to Mike Godwin.

Especially if the topic is A) as innocuous as a study of college kids' level of empathy or apathy or B) something far beyond the control of any elected official.

That comment thread is hilarious.
