I was going to burn daylight explaining how Newt Gingrich whipped Matthew Dowd's ass on the teevee machine this morning. I might still, because I think it is instructive to understand how cunning hobgoblins like Gingrich beat simpering idiots like Dowd every time.
But this is so much more delightful and educational...
I weote that if she lost, the world would have her to blame. That was 100% correct.— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) April 24, 2017
100% > %34 https://t.co/wCU4Qj5h2H
We had Trump with a 34% chance when you wrote a column saying that Clinton *might* lose. I'm sorry you don't get how probability works. https://t.co/0Fwe9L5irn— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) April 24, 2017
When I wrote this column, you were still predicting a Clinton win. Nice work. https://t.co/6peoqNsc3M https://t.co/xNCpDfKNdq— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) April 24, 2017You're the former DC bureau chief for the Associated Press, and you literally don't understand how fractions work. https://t.co/jRmTjPAuBv— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) April 24, 2017
Nice prediction, ace. It didn't work https://t.co/wCU4Qj5h2H— Ron Fournier (@ron_fournier) April 24, 2017
No attempt to refute the evidence on Comey. No reporting or facts. Just [sigh]. From a former DC bureau chief turned "both sides" pundit. https://t.co/R1cdnCjgiM— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) April 24, 2017
And then, seeing a roiling shitpile of Ron Fournier idiocy, Matthew Dowd felt compelled to do exactly what you would expect Matthew Dowd to do.
Protect the hive!
@ron_fournier Exactly.— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) April 24, 2017
@matthewjdowd @ron_fournier Point is Fournier's absurd tweets which I had naively assumed you would correct him on rather than applaud— Isaac Chotiner (@IChotiner) April 24, 2017
And then, seeing a roiling shitpile of Beltway pundit idiocy, Chris Cillizza felt compelled to do exactly what you would expect Chris Cillizza to do.
This is diuretics.Chris Cillizza retweeting Matthew Dowd's support of Ron Fournier's nonsensical statistics on HRC's loss is a "turducken" of bad punditry. pic.twitter.com/LgMZlb1E2r— Randy Renstrom (@RandyRenstrom) April 24, 2017
Very simple diuretics...
