Fitzgerald Flameout: Prosecution Fail

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald indicted a ham sandwich—Rod Blagojevich—on 24 counts, and all he has to show for it is one guilty verdict—making false statements to federal authorities—and a mistrial. What a shame for Mr. Fitzgerald that the mendacious blarney-meister Tim Russert was no longer available to testify. On the other hand, Mr. Russert’s testimony, one may be forgiven for wagering, might have been good only for the prosecution of an innocent man.

Could it be time for Fitzgerald to bag the Judas Cradle and rat torture  and set up shop in another line of business? There’s always Armitage International, where Rich Armitage and his band of fixers ply their trade.  After all, Armitage owes him one—a big one.
