Among those who are preparing for the release of the Nunes memo tomorrow is former FBI Director James Comey (via Twitter below). Comey pretends to a sort of Olympian detachment, as though his conduct in office is not in issue. He certainly conceives of himself as an Olympian figure, perhaps sprung like Athena from Zeus’s brow. By my lights he is the least self-aware man in the United States. Move over, Jack Handey.
All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would. But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up. Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy.
