The Comey boomerang

I don't know how well Jimmy the Geek Comey's book sales are going, but I do know his trash talk about the president has turned the public off.

(When I called him Jimmy the Weasel, readers complained that I was unfairly maligning weasels.)


"Forty-six percent (46%) of all voters believe Comey should be prosecuted for leaking information to the media at the time he was director of the FBI. That’s up from 41% last June following Comey’s admission under oath to a U.S. Senate committee that he leaked memos of his private meetings with Trump as FBI director to the New York Times through a friend," Rasmussen reported.

Comey has been an arrogant, elitist snob in interviews about his tome.

He was dismissive of Hillary and President Donald John Trump. Like most of the Deep Staters, he thinks he is better than the people we elect to run the government.

He also threw Loretta Lynch under the bus. (Come on, guys, let me call this little weasel a weasel.)

Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media found a review of Comey's book tour by the New York Times. Not the book (which the Times also reviewed) but a review of the book's promotion.

"With the release of his memoir this week and a set of high-profile media interviews to publicize it, Mr. Comey — whose firing by President Trump made him a hero to the president’s critics — has veered onto risky terrain, shedding the trappings of a high-minded referee and looking instead like a combatant in the country’s partisan battles," the Times said.

In other words, he has revealed who he really is.

One of my readers worked with Comey years ago and was shocked to see this side of him.

A plurality of Americans now wants him to stand trial for leaking.

Include me in that 46%.

  4. I'm part of the 46% too. And add Ms. Clinton and many others to my list. Others have gone to jail for much, much less. What rule of law!

    1. I believe the 46% is the public face of a larger under-reporting group; you know, the way Trump voters did not respond to questioners and left the impression there were fewer of them than actually existed. Just a theory, or maybe a hope.

  7. Tome means a scholarly work, which is being too kind to Comey, so of the two "fable" is a better choice.

    Still, I heard a rumor that the first chapter starts off with "Dear Diary" and sounds like it's the scribblings of a pre-pubescent girl. That does seem to fit. /lol

  8. Hillary Clinton has been ripping him from one side of the planet to the other. How come he isn't bashing her "marriage" to Bill or her personally in the book? We all know the answer to that. I think he made it clear. He was going to be the guy that cleared Hillary, and he would be celebrated as the clean as a whistle FBI man who integrity was unimpeachable and he cleared her of all wrongdoing so she did not do anything wrong. He was going to bask in that glow. Trump ended all that. And he can't stand it.

    1. Amusing thought experiment. While Mrs. Clinton may not be very smart, she is very vengeful. That given, had Clinton been elected, how long would Comey have lasted?.

  9. When does language and behavior of a former government official, which seems clearly meant to undermine the government, cross the line into treason?

  10. I am always surprised when Americans are surprised and horrified that a civil servant is a weasel. As Heinlein wrote :"No matter how lavishly overpaid, civil servants everywhere are convinced that they are horribly underpaid -- but all public employees have larceny in their hearts or they wouldn't be feeding at the public trough."

  11. Mobster Jimmy Fratiano was "Jimmy the Weasel." Ran the mafia in LA. Became a government witness when rivals put out a contract. Still has more integrity than Comey. More guts too. But not as tall.

  12. That cartoon by the untalented hack is so bad - and so poorly drawn - it reminds me of the "repent or you're going to Hell" pamphlets that some of the dumber religious or quasi-religious people used to hand out 20 years ago.

    It also contaminates all associated with it. Who could be dumb enough to actually select that cartoon?

  13. If ONKLY 46% want this bum prosecuted that is very disappointing. The blatant flaunting of our laws needs to be called out by all of as.

  14. When I saw the ads for Colbert last night touting special guest Jim Comey, I knew he’d completely blown his cover. What profiteth a man, Jimmy the Weasel?

  15. To prevent "Devoted Public Servants" (DIPS)from devolving to careerist hacks, we suggest optionally drafting eligible citizens age 28 - 46
    from a pre-qualified pool. Once anyone accepts an administrative/regulatory ("Fourth Branch") posting, as one-in-three bored souls will likely do, they serve three years subject to strict performance overides, plus two years additional as circumstances warrant.

    Randomly ensconced mealworms of this nature will gain valuable exposure to in-group machinations, awarded not pensions but a lump-sum public-service bonus equal to one-tenth their 60-month gross pretax compensation.

    Technical expertise shall be up-for-bids, contracted out; executive and managerial positions shall be filled by political appointment; supervisors are promoted from bureacracy's serried ranks themselves.

    Given the resulting disincentives, your active Civil Service (sic) will not only be "diverse" in every socio-political/cutural way, but far more honest and effective than today's sad specimens, if for no other reason than experienced placeholders will know how "messing over" works and won't accommodate it personally.

  16. Now you're badmouthing geeks, Don? And I have to admit I sometimes have to think you're being a little too polite. Comey is a train wreck. Call him James "The Train Wreck" Comey. -- BJ54

  17. Somebody empathized with real weasels, Don.

  18. You people just don't get it.
    Damn deplorables!
    According to the media and elites, your vote shouldn't count.
    They have every right to lie, cheat, steal, bash your head in, or do anything else that gives them the election result they want.
    To them you shouldn't even have a vote.

  19. Be careful you do not want to vex the Golden Scalp Weasel of Donald Trump. A vexed Golden Scalp Weasel is a terrible thing to behold.
