Does anybody believe Matthew DOWD has seen "that side" of Gov. GOODHAIR?!1
Edited on Sun Nov-06-11 10:32 AM by UTUSN
Actually, I thought the dude spouting on This Weak was somebody from Politico and I was going to go in this direction about fake D.C. reporters covering up for candidates, especially wingnut candidates:

---- This D.C. fake reporter covered up for GOODHAIR's bizarrely giddy condition by saying it wasn't due to chemicals, that this fake reporter has known GOODHAIR for 25 years and told Christiane that he has been exposed to "that side" of GOODHAIR on occasion. This smacks of D.C. poseur trying to be kewl with hinterland cute antics. ---------

But after digging to find out who he was, it turned out to be one Matthew DOWD, who Wiki says was a Texas Bob BULLOCK so-called Democrat, which actually explains a lot. So it wasn't a D.C. crack investigative reporter talking, but rather a Rethug operative, pegged by Sid BLUMENTHAL as "an opportunist."

So after knowing that DOWD comes from the bowels of TX Rethug stools, it is, after all, very possible he has seen "that side" of Goodhair, and it would be a service if he would go into exhaustive detail about all those times and exactly what went on each time.

O.K., fine. So could *any* of our crack investigative media sort of TRY to ask GOODHAIR how often he glides into these "loose" conditions, what exactly flips his mood since this particular one came at a particularly low tide of his fortunes, and would something like that happen if, say, a national emergency popped up?!1 Things like that.

What this is really about is how media, not only doesn't dig much, but actually withholds information they know about nefarious rapscallions running for office then wonder why the world laughs incredulously at us.


Dowd began his political career as a Democrat, working for, among others, Texas Lt. Governor Bob Bullock. In 1999, he switched parties to become a Republican.<1>

During the 2002 election, Dowd was a senior adviser to the Republican National Committee.

During the 2004 Presidential election, Dowd was chief strategist for George W. Bush's re-election campaign.<1>

As reported in The New York Times on April 1, 2007, Dowd had come to feel a deep frustration with and great disappointment in George W. Bush, whom he criticized for failing to call the nation together in time of war, for ignoring the will of the American public with regard to the Iraq War, his re-nomination of former UN ambassador John Bolton after his rejected confirmation and for failing to hold Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld accountable for the Abu Ghraib scandal.<2> According to Democracy Now, Dowd claims to have undergone a change of heart regarding the Iraq War, and adopted a position advocating a withdraw from that country, after contemplating the likelihood of his own son's deployment to the country, as well as after seeing Bush refuse to meet with anti-war-mother Cindy Sheehan in the summer of 2005, while he was entertaining Lance Armstrong at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. Dowd cited these incidents, as well as Bush's handling of the Hurricane Katrina disaster, as cause for this change.<3><4>

Upon leaving the Bush administration, Dowd has not been on speaking terms with former White House political adviser Karl Rove.<5> Sidney Blumenthal, in an opinion piece in Salon, entitled "Matthew Dowd's not-so-miraculous conversion", described Dowd as an "opportunist".<6>

On December 2, 2010 Dowd penned an opinion piece in the National Journal defending Wikileaks, writing that, "Republicans and Democrats seem to agree on a few things: That the government, in the name of fighting terrorism, has the right to listen in on all of our phone conversations and read our e-mails, even if it has no compelling reason for doing so."<7>

2. Actually I'm having to eat words: SCHIEFFER did a long segment on the GOODHAIR's giddiness
He faced down Rethug vote thief BLACKWELL, the Cerebus Liz CHEENEE, and Ed GILLESPIE.

Cerebus tore into him saying blah blah Lib media blah blah covering meaningless crap first CAIN last week now this blah.

SHIEFFER slapped her down with, "We're COVERING THE CAMPAIGN..." HaHAH!1

And he's from Texas so he *knows* the scum we're up against. He's also the dude who O'LOOFAH whines about being bigfooted during O'LOOFAH'S "war correspondent" days, that O'LOOFAH was a bushy loofahed reporter-pup who did all the hard work covering the Brit-Argentine island WAR and then network star SHIEFFER flew in and was given O'LOOFAH's material for reading on the air. HaHAH!1
