It's all downhill for Comey now
American Thinker ^ | 04/15/18 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 04/15/2018 7:39:40 PM PDT by Pining_4_TX

The day that James Comey cashed the multi-million dollar advance check from MacMillan Publishers will turn out to mark the date that we can call “Peak Comey.” It was all downhill from the instant the ink started drying on his signature on the back of the check. He and his ghost writer suddenly faced the unenviable task of making him look like the righteous warrior he had always portended to be, but with the need to fill 300 pages with something. Self-serving rationalizations can’t sustain reader interest over that many words, so apparently they decided that prose about physical appearances drawn from the bodice-ripper school of novels grafted onto Trump-hatred would do the trick.

The result was so awful that even the Washington Post, owned by arch-enemy of Trump Jeff Bezos, felt the need for a satire. The result, written Alexandra Petri, a Post writer whose “Compost” blog is described as “offering a lighter take on the news and opinions of the day,” is downright hilarious. Purporting to offer “further excerpts” from his forthcoming book, her satire takes on the purple prose and wrestles it to the mat.

As I said, Comey’s going down to Chinatown. Obama may not be too far behind.

Comey’s reason for comparing Trump to Sammy the Bull Gravano was - a leader calling all his people together and discussing how to deal with a problem. I kid you not. That was the explanation. And it wasn’t even an analysis, Comey had this “flashback”when he first met Trump. Bias much?

That was such a good send-up, I had to look up Alexandra Petri.

That man must go to prison. Treason.

Greg Gutfeld’s show this weekend was hilarious! Gutfeld said asked which person we want dealing with North Korea, and showed a picture of Brando as the Godfather (meaning Trump, as he was accused of being mafia), or the graduate assistant who reads poetry to his cat, and then showed a picture of Obama.

He also had a great segment about Zuckerberg testifying in front of all the old farts in Congress. Funny stuff!

Actually Comey is Gravano. He’s a backstabbing snitch.

I’m listening to the radio news staring into the computer, and they had a soundbite of Comey on one of his numerous media appearances, and I swore I’d heard that voice before, way back... and it dawned on me, Comey sounds just like Scott Peterson professing his innocence of his wife’s dissapearance in various interviews. Same oily cadence.

Comey is a evil traitor that’s for sure.

However, I fear a method to his madness, but can not put my finger on it. Comey is a experienced political operator. He is saying these provocative things for a cold & calculated reason.

Wish I saw that. Gutfeld has a really good sense of humor. I watched Fox New Years eve show/Times Square.

When the ball dropped he said, ‘I miss 2017’ seconds after it changed to 2018. It was a pretty funny quip.

Really?

If he's such a slick, "Political operator" why is he going to face prosecution?

comey‘s antics might only be about generating free publicity to sell his book.

BTW - 1/2 of the FBI should be prosecuted.

Now it comes clear. Comey’s really a B player. He got an A player slot but he doesn’t have the chops.

It is difficult to believe that Mueller, RosenWeasel and Comey are not in constant communication and scheming.
