Matthew Dowd is a Fundamentally Ridiculous Person

Either you care both about Trump being sexual predator & Clinton emails, or u care about neither. But don't talk about one without the other

For "the last few years"?  Are you fucking kidding me?

Puts me in mind of this exchange from The Big Sleep between the Sternwood's loyal butler, Norris, and Philip Marlowe:
Norris: Are you attempting to tell me my duties, sir?

Philip Marlowe: No, just having fun trying to guess what they are.
Since Mr. Dowd has spent his entire professional life defending the Big Lie of Both Siderism in a manner that might best be described as pathological-denial-to-the-point-of-belligerence...

And since the only thing that finally forced Mr. Dowd to modify his position was Donald Trump shoving so much evidence to the contrary so far up Mr. Dowd's ass that it was singing chorus of "My Way" to his tonsils...

And since Mr. Dowd is now peddling the same, self-absolving origin story that half the pundits in America are selling: that he, alone, doing the noble work of punditing in his lab, night after night, made this heroic "Holy Shit!  Balance is Bullshit!" breakthrough all by himself...

...it is clear that while he might be a miracle worker at the barbecue pit or great at sorting laundry, the two activities at which he objective sucks are "political analysis" and "journalism".

And yet, mysteriously, his job at ABC News is chief political analyst.

So since Mr. Dowd is terrible at both the "news" thing and the "political analyst" thing, I confess that I do have my share of fun trying to guess what his real duties are.


Behold, a Tip Jar!
