But you already knew that.
It turns out, I was wrong. ABC's chief political analyst doesn't block people on Twitter just for pointing out how horribly wrong he has been about everything.
Instead, Mr. Dowd's blocks people on Twitter based on their opinion of Chinese food:
@theZenCorner thank you. As i said, i am very willing to listen to opposing viewpoints. Just not wonton disregard for the truth— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) January 1, 2017
Actually, Mr. Dowd -- who lies a lot and can be incredibly thin-skinned and insulting when he's not wallowing in a tub of banal "Love Is The Answer!" bromides -- just doesn't care to listen to people who lie a lot and are insulting:
@theZenCorner i don't agree with that. I am not going to listen to folks who don't care about the truth and insult people.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) January 1, 2017
Which begs the question, how exactly does ABC's chief political analyst plan to report knowledgeably about the antics of the Trumpshirts and their Dear Leader if he refuses to listen insulters and liars?
@NYCdisinterest those aren't trump voters. Those are trump fans. I block those.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) January 1, 2017
Wow. Just wow.
