The latest media person to fail to think and count to ten before hitting the “Tweet” button is Matthew Dowd.
Once a Democrat, Dowd came over to the Republican Party in 1999, and was George W. Bush’s chief campaign strategist during the 2004 campaign. He became an independent in 2008 and is currently a Chief Political Analyst at ABC News. He also claims to be Catholic, but clearly has a politically twisted understanding of the first Christmas.
Although he has posted many tweets during the past several days, here is the first of the two betraying ignorance of the Nativity story:
Let us remember today 2 immigrants, a man and his very pregnant wife, sought shelter & were turned away by many. She gave birth in a manger
