Just in case you thought that the monstrous reign of Il Douche might cure ABC News' chief political analyst of his crippling addiction to Both Siderism, rest assured, no force on Heaven or Earth can knock that bottomless myopium* bong out of his hand.
Of course, ABC News isn't going to do a damn thing about it because Both Siderism remains the bread-and-honey of American corporate media, but for us nobodies out here in the Real World, at least the hilariously predictable pattern of Mr. Dowd's addiction can be entertaining.
First comes the cloying, Dowd-brand homily about how we mortals should do politics:
How about we start with this for choosing which candidates to vote for: look for the ones with the most integrity and those who are compassionate, caring, and loving. And treat everyone with dignity and respect. Let’s start there.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) June 8, 2018
Then comes a rejoinder:
Then comes the preening, finger-wagging that people should "let it go" and, y'know, stop holding people like Matthew Dowd accountable for the things they said and did back when doing the right thing would have actually mattered:
Connie, let it go please. There were lots of questions surrounding Hillary’s integrity. Lots. We had two candidates the majority of the country didn’t trust.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) June 8, 2018
Fortunately, the Twitter rapid reaction to Mr. Dowd's drivel get more rapid and reactive every day. Here are a couple of sample.
I’m tired of this imaginary narrative that somehow Hillary had no integrity, no compassion, no love, no caring. Shameful of you to even insinuate this.— Daniel Aubry (@Aubs89) June 9, 2018
Who knew that @matthewjdowd would get so touchy when someone points out how obscenely, unprofessionally, dangerously biased the campaign coverage was.— Carolyn Boyle (@accidntlmystic) June 9, 2018

Without Both Siderism, Mr. Dowd would be nobody and would have nothing, which is why he values his addiction over his country.
Behold, a Tip Jar!
