4.) Alexander Hamilton Redux

Comey finally wraps it up by bloviating about the Founding Fathers and how we, as Americans, must “fight through our fatigue and contempt for this shrunken, withered figure.”

Comey concludes:
 

Spurred by the danger he poses to our nation and its values, we have to overcome the shock and numbness of earlier stages. We must not look away. We must summon the effort necessary to protect this republic from Alexander Hamilton’s great fear, that when an unprincipled person “is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity — to join in the cry of danger to liberty — to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion — to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day — It may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion that he may ‘ride the storm and direct the whirlwind.’” 

Ugh. Well, at least he didn’t compare himself to Jesus.
