A couple of years ago Mr. Matthew Dowd no only blocked me because I routinely and publicly calling him out over the Both Siderist, Trump-enabling horseshit he peddled for a living.

why don't you accept people for where they are in the present?— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) August 21, 2016
Wonder what @greenbergerj thinks about @ABC's chief political analyst making a blunder this public & embarrassing? https://t.co/lRSVjVLg2I— driftglass (@Mr_Electrico) January 3, 2017

let the clinton stuff go. Trump is president elect. And let's concentrate on that, and future leaders. Not the past.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) December 23, 2016
Not only blocked me (which is fine by me; I've been thrown out of much classier joints than that) but went out of his way to insult people who read my little blog.Apparently the idea that some nobody blogger out in the middle of Middle America could run rings around his fatuous bumper-sticker-grade political drivel did not sit well with ABC News' chief political analyst.

If you read Driftglass then you don't care much for the truth.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) June 23, 2017
And yet, a year later...
I have said this for nearly two years: we in the media/press job should not be balance, it should be pursuit of the truth. If people being interviewed do not consistently tell the truth, we should not be giving them a platform. We should be biased towards truth, end of story.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) May 17, 2018
Beltway Math is such that "a few months" = "nearly two years", because that's the direction the bandwagon is heading, and by God Almighty, Mr. Dowd is damn well gonna be on that God damn bandwagon retroactively no matter how much history he has to redact, rewrite or simply ignore to do it.
But whether it was a few months ago, or a year, or slightly longer, step back soak in the fact that ABC News' chief political analyst now wants credit for catching up with where Liberals were 25 years ago. Including one Liberal who Mr. Dowd blocked and insulted less than a year ago for saying exactly what ABC News' chief political analyst would now like a pat on the head and a fucking lollipop for finally figuring out.
There really is a Club, boys and girls.
And you and I are absolutely not welcome there.
Behold, a Tip Jar!
