“He ‘pulled a Comey’ on us”.
Responding to Cruz’s convention speech, star-rising Kentucky State Senator Ralph Alvarado cut to the chase.
OMG … an FBI Director has become a part of speech.
You know, like Xerox is not just a company … it‘s a noun synonymous with “ copy”. … and a verb, as in “go Xerox this”.
What did Alvarado mean?
Basically, Cruz seemed to be laying out a case supportive of Trump, then he took a turn with “vote your conscience”.
Alarado coined it a “Comey”
Now, Comey’s dictionary legacy will be:
(1) Comey, noun … an illogical or counterfactual conclusion drawn from a compelling body of evidence .. e.g. “to pull a Comey”
(2) Comey, adjective … an illogical or counterfactual conclusion drawn from a compelling body of evidence … e.g. “that’s Comey logic”
(3) Comey, verb … to draw an illogical or counterfactual conclusion from a compelling body of evidence.
Comey wanted to go down in the history books as a fair, just, apolitical FBI Director.
Instead, he may have planted his legacy in the Urban Dictionary.
