Jimmy Princeton provides us with the perfect example of Mueller Probe Dysphoria: A play in 4 parts

With the arrival of the Mueller Report (holy crap, finally) there has been all manner of enjoyment watching the leftists who have been reduced to stammering pudddles of tapioca trying to explain the non-result.
When you invest so much time towards your Trump-derangement-fueled expectations on a solitary result, and it comes up vacant, it is understandable why you might backtrack like a Bill Kristol, or simply play the clown, like Brian Krassensteein (to be redundant.)
Twitter fave Jimmy Princeton has found another example of this phenomenon, in the form of regular rambler of imbalanced blue-check thinking, Matthew Dowd.
It is a glorious example of delusion, displayed in the giddy manner of describing the heroic figure of Robert Mueller for years, only to have him reduced to a rather tepid historical figure.
What makes this so great is the sheer scope of the anticipation by Mr. Dowd. He goes back as far as May, 2017 with his Mueller-as-gun-man fantasy.

Think of Comey and Mueller like John Wick going through Russians and their American accomplices.

Mueller reminds me of Wyatt Earp in Tombstone going after anyone wearing a red sash, and "it isn't revenge he is after, but a reckoning"

Next was a couple of months back…
I imagine Bob Mueller could be saying this line in True Grit:
Rooster Cogburn: You go for a man hard enough and fast enough, he don't have time to think about how many's with him; he thinks about himself, and how he might get clear of that wrath that's about to set down on him.

But suddenly, literally overnight, Matt takes a completely neutered view of his white knight.
Think of Robert Mueller like Johnny Appleseed: he planted a bunch of trees, and now he has finished his planting, so watch trees grow across the landscape, and fruit be harvested.

Huh. Mueller is a hitman, a gunslinger, a gritty Marshal, and a…seed-tossing nurseryman…??? That seems quite the departure after long months of counting on him riding in with heroic indictments and charges. Must be tough to keeep those embers of hope alive with the image of — dastardly apple trees.
John Wick's assault!
Wyatt Earps' reckoning!
Rooster Cogburn's wrath!

Johnny Appleseed's... {squints} Apple trees?

Dowd has filled his feed with those who are praising the brilliance of his aanalogy. They seem oblivious to his years of touting Mueller as a toughened justice seeker out for blood, and then reducing him now to a benevolent and patient man nurturing fruit trees to later bear fruit.

Maybe Matthew has used Johnny’s bumper crop — to imbibe copious amounts of hard cider.
