Weren’t we just talking about vainglorious blowhards a minute ago? And didn’t I mention last night that Comey’s past his sell-by date?
Why yes, we were and I did.
Washington (CNN) When “Fire and Fury” hit bookshelves in January, the release became a Washington event, marked by people lining up at local bookstores and sold-out speaking events for author Michael Wolff. Washingtonian even compared the hype around the release to that of “Harry Potter.”
But DC’s book nerds didn’t turn up for James Comey’s “A Higher Loyalty.” At least not in the masses booksellers might have expected.
“There are more cameras here than people,” one person joked.
Another journalist asked the room: “Is anyone a normal person or is everyone a journalist?”
Only one person — reluctantly — identified himself as a “normal person.”
I have a feeling certain over-eager purchasing agents are going to find themselves in a boiling swivet over this:

You’re going places all right—straight to the dumpster with your precious cart o’ crap, to heave all those unsold books into it.
Instead of frittering away their time on Comey’s claptrap, the emitters of the above fragrant Twitter belch would be far better served by spending some quality time in their safe space with a dictionary reviewing the definition of the word “truth,” of which they seem to have a comically ass-backwards grasp. I can’t find any hard numbers as of yet, but I’ve heard and read it was a similar sad story at his NYC appearance. Even more edifying than Comey inspiring mass indifference amongst the book-buying public, though, is this:
RUSH: Grab sound bite number 23 and play it again. This is Laura Loomer. She comes from the James O’Keefe shop, Project Veritas. She’s now acting independently. She showed up at Comey’s book signing event at Barnes & Noble in New York last night.
LOOMER: How is it ethical to brief the president of the United States on an unverifiable and salacious dossier, and how is it ethical leadership to not tell him that his political opposition, Hillary Clinton, paid for that? You are not an ethical leader!
MAN: Ma’am, you’re gonna have to leave.
LOOMER: You’re gonna get prosecuted, Comey! You’re gonna get locked up!
T’is a consummation devoutly to be wished, that is. Comey, and the whole gang of sewer-crawlers with him, too. A tip of the cap to Loomer for speaking truth to (former) power.
Later, Jimmy-boy. Good luck in prison. Remember to bring lots of soap and cigarettes. Might want to give country music legend Kinky Friedman’s heartrending ode to jailhouse love gone awry “It’s Hard To Relax Your Sphincter When You’re Crying” a careful listen or three, too.
