Matthew Dowd Is a Fundamentally Ridiculous Person

To be clear, my problem is not with the sentiment Mr. Dowd expresses although I would have written it much, much better.

No, what I found hilarious in this case is not Mr. Dowd's statement, but the overwhelming reaction online to his halting, tortured attempt to say that, in this case, under these very rarefied circumstances, with the planets in this exact and never-to-be-repeated configuration, just maybe Both Side of this issue are not equally horrible or symmetrically to blame.

For which Right and the Both Siderists positively swarmed him (here is a typical example):

Someone forgot to tell Mr. Dowd that in addition to being a highly profitable scam, the Both Siderism on which he has built his career is also a cult and a trap. The Hotel California of dishonest political dodges. And once you set up shop there, any deviation whatsoever -- any attempt to step outside, even for a minute -- will get you eaten alive by the mob of meatheads for whom Both Siderism is the last line of defense between them and the righteous judgement of history.

liberals are allowed to sexually harass whoever they want, and conservatives aren't.

It's just not fair!

I always like to use Bible quotes with the Trumptards, not that they get the irony but it does make me feel better.

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and
miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the
shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

"Both sides" is the last bastion of the pimps, dullards and inbreds who can't or won't defend their side.

Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but to me Mary Katharine Ham's criticism displays sound reasoning. It isn't appropriate to dismiss the harm to individual women such behavior causes simply because the perpetrator may have positively affected others, even a great many others.

Which side is calling for their abusers to be appropriately investigated, and which side is saying their abusers behavior doesn't matter because it's better than electing a member of the other party?
Which party is claiming that the abuser's denial is all they need to hear on the matter, and those sluts were probably paid to accuse them anyway?
You should have seen this a long time ago, Matty boy, we all did.

In the zero tolerance unwritten policues of sexual harassment.

Where did they get the moral fibertude to make it that, telling a blonde joke is the same as Roy Moore's traditional conservative moral values of offering young girls the opportunity to be as they put it, "like Mary in the Bible"?

Does the gay version of Roy Moore in Alabama republican-ville have to ask permission to date their underage sons?

Then you have zealot religious for thou but not me.

Because he and his money and position will allow him this "privilege"?

The magnitude of Timmy Murphy's superiority over females in his life. The unsuspecting wife to the advice to abort a child outside of wedlock. How does Dowd ignore these moral pillar.

If the Roy Moores out there impregnated a 14 year old girl (in this era of DNA testing). Is their any doubt whatsoever in Dowd's mind that the purest imaculate religious version of Roy Moore would NOT choose abortion for the girl to you know. Preserve his honor?

How badly do corporate media and wealthy republican donors want their tax cuts has surfaced for most to see if they care to look. Mud and blood in the waters.

Folks like Dowd have not and will not address the fact that this president appointed Mike Flynn to the White House Security Counsel . Knowing fully Flynn was on Russia and Turkey's payroll.
Because Goth sides of the patriotic Mason Dixon line?
