When Matthew Dowd announced his candidacy for Texas Lieutenant Governor — as a Democrat, of course — we laughed. A lot.
And then, we laughed at Jennifer Rubin, because this was her take on Dowd:
A bold, conscientious NeverTrump voice! Running for office. More should do the same! https://t.co/Tme86FGLGX

And if anyone knows bold and conscientious, it’s Jennifer Rubin.

As he should.

We have no doubt that Maria Shriver found Matthew Dowd to be a bold and conscientious partner in adultery.
Hes so conscientious that he'll bang your wife while married. The leadership Texas needs! https://t.co/OfAMTWkjxp

Vote for Dowd! Vote for Dowd!
I feel like none of these people understood the 2020 election results in Texas… https://t.co/GxcMmgsoBs

NeverTrump is not a party. https://t.co/0u0kWQbZha

Well, not with that attitude!
There will come a time, which is either fast-approaching or already here, when you will need a coherent plan for a rebrand from “NeverTrump”, and that will prove to be an existential problem. Because really, what are you? https://t.co/ivVKhdRMd1

A hack. An unapologetic hack.
