Comey’s been fired. I can’t imagine anyone’s going to be too broken up for his sake. Obviously in retrospect Obama’s biggest mistake, and almost certainly the last time a Democrat puts a Republican in charge of anything meaningful. (If he didn’t want a liberal running the FBI, why not name fresh-out-of-a-job Ben Nelson? He was just as qualified.) That Comey’s final act was bumbling testimony related to EMAILZGATE is sort of perfect.

    I’ll also add that Obama should have been the one to do this, and that Comey’s fundamental failing was an obsession with being seen as evenhanded and fairminded rather than an obsession with being those things. This is a pretty common Washington failing, for sure.
