The two sentences quoted in the footnote are horribly clumsy and ambiguous, or worse. Pullum drew attention to that kind of cliche and did as much as anyone to popularize the word for it (snowclone), but he did not coin that word. I do not know what "popularly originated" means. In the other sentence, who is maligning what? It reads as if something of Pullum's is much-maligned, but I think the intended meaning is that Pullum criticized something.
