I knew we'd wear the corners off this graphic in the new year...
Yeah. it's been kind of Dowd-heavy today, but the reason will become apparent in a minute.
You see, having spent most of this first working day of 2017 publicly shitting the bed, getting basic American political history completely wrong, refusing to take any ownership for his own breathtaking stupid (and pretty fucking racist) claptrap and being kicked thoroughly around the Twitter block, ABC's chief political analyst proved once again what a disgracefully gutless man-baby he is by trying to "Both Sides" the whole shabby mess away:
Well that was sadly predictable.problem we have today: when i criticize Trump, D partisans love, trump fans hate. When i criticize Obama, trump fans love, D partisans hate— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) January 2, 2017
In fact, I predicted it about 20 minutes before he did it. Because, yeah, I am just that good.
Matthew Dowd only hangs onto his Beltway gig by remaining a rigidly doctrinaire member of the High and Holy Cult of Both Siderism. (1/2)— driftglass (@Mr_Electrico) January 2, 2017
Trump is an arrogant monster. Ergo, per to the dogma of the High and Holy Cult of Both Siderism, Obama must somehow also be arrogant 2/2— driftglass (@Mr_Electrico) January 2, 2017
Honestly, if this pathetic fraction of a man weren't the chief political analyst for one of America's three major teevee networks, I'd let it slide.
But he is. So I won't.
