When asked by a fundraiser attendee about civility in the Senate, Coburn reportedly said: Theres no comity with Harry Reid. I think hes an absolute asshole.
Erin Durkin, NY Daily News, October 28, 2013
Latin comitat-, comitas, from comis courteous, probably from Old Latin cosmis, from com- + -smis (akin to Sanskrit smayate he smiles). First Known Use: 1543
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

WFB's attempt to emulate us ; ) No pushing at the door please!
Rise and shine! Sometimes you see a word in a sentence and just have to use it as the WFTD.
Risen. Not Shining
Under our new leadership, the departmental comity has increased which has led to better communication between teams and an atmosphere of calm.
You should appreciate this.
In the NY media, Christie is now embroiled in a “scandal”.
Allegedly, because the Mayor of Ft.Lee NJ a Dem did not endorse Christie.
The Mayor of Ft.Lee is FIGHTING a subpoena to testify, in the investigation,
If political enemies were targeted, I am sure it was just some lower level employees in Cincinnati.
That is crazy. But who will wind up the media darling?
Been there, done that.
Comity of Justice
Lets consider its just a new wrinkle,
The fact that some cannot do wrong.
No matter how clear the transgression,
Its still the same siren song,
Of porcine succubant damsels,
Whose lipo is suctioned away,
Thus leaving a rugosian landscape,
With fissures that never see day.
While off in the distance a sinner,
Has stumbled and strayed from the path,
But this is an erstwhile reformer,
And as such is a victim of math.
Where a single example of deviance,
Is two strikes too many to bear,
And all protestations for fairness,
Are just gaspings of fish in the air.

A+ for you.
Yeah, but where does that meaning come from? It seems like one of those opposite things.
Barack promised unity, comity
What we got is disgusting, it’s vomity
For rich/poor and black/white
Male/female, the fight
He’s created has led to calamity
This is about the DNC knowing no Democrat can win without NJ.
That is why people need to get used to the idea of Christie as President, like him or not.
No one is going to out debate him (Perry), when he stumps, people go nuts. And the Electoral college is the cherry on top.
Wait till he starts stumping.
He’s tip toeing left now, to build
But in front of a mic, he goes ape$h!t.
If the NJ Pres. Polls in 16 favor him...hence the EC...the election will have more red meat that Rurhs Chris steakhouse,
