Matthew Dowd, who considers himself a proud independent but tweets exclusively progressive content, was on MSNBC with Nicolle Wallace and tried to do away with the idea that you can talk to Sen. Ted Cruz and then talk to someone sane on the other side of the aisle and treat them as if they’re the same. “You don’t talk to crazy people,” he said, ironically putting Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the “sane” side of the balance across from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Of course, Wallace agrees completely.

He’s blocked us.

We like the fact that he couldn’t think of a “sane” equivalent on the Democratic side to balance out Ted Cruz.
