For Want of 'Team Players,' Maybe the Republic Will Be Saved

More on James Comey, who was Acting Attorney General when El Presidente wanted reauthorization for his secret NSA domestic spying operation (from Newsweek). Comey balked at the warrantless eavesdropping (see previous post, down-column). "Miffed that Comey, a straitlaced, by-the-book former U.S. attorney from New York, was not a 'team player' on this and other issues, President George W. Bush dubbed him with a derisive nickname, 'Cuomo,' after Mario Cuomo, the New York governor who vacillated over running for president in the 1980s."
