NEW YORK, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- As 2005 draws to an end, a fresh new crop of Weasels have sprouted and Dilbert creator Scott Adams has carefully exposed these double-dealing hooligans in his latest unscientific and fourth- annual Weasel Poll. Beginning today on Dilbert.com, Dilbert readers are encouraged to help shape the future and embarrass these candidates by selecting the Weaseliest in six categories. From corporate giants like Wal-Mart and Fox News to illustrious individuals such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Tom DeLay, no one is safe from the 2005 Weasel Awards. Also new today on Dilbert.com is Adams' highly anticipated Dilbert Blog, which fans can access at http://dilbertblog.typepad.com.

No subject is off limits and fans will be able to post comments and ask the Dilbert creator all the things they've been aching to know. Commenting on this year's poll and new Blog, Adams says, "This year we have a bumper crop of weasel candidates. Normally you'd need an election year to fertilize such a bountiful crop. But it turns out that natural disasters also do the trick. I'll weigh in with my own opinions on this and oh-so-much more in my new Dilbert Blog."
