125. Correction as requested.
I was misled by the very widespread statement that Fitzpatrick is a declared Republican, something I had no reason to doubt but that is, as I have discovered, false. In fact, he has no declared party affiliation; he was appointed by a Republican governor whom he later brought down.

Nevertheless, charged with investigating the worst and most unabashedly lawless criminal organization currently known to be operating in the United States -- the illegitimate Bush regime -- and specifically to prosecute any crimes relating to the outing of Valerie Plame as a CIA agent -- which was done in the course of psychological operations aimed at the American people prior to the launching of an illegal aggressive war on the nation of Iraq -- said USA Fitzgerald did, apparently, lose the elan and characteristic recklessness in the cause of justice that he now displays plentifully in arresting the governor of Illinois before actually having a case ready for court! No, when confronting the Beast itself, Attorney Fitzgerald took no "risks" except against one of its more particularly obnoxious independent mouthpieces (can't say I didn't enjoy her enforced vacation) and ultimately, alas, backed off, or perhaps acted as expected by his appointers at the Ashcroft Justice Department, and restricted himself to positively laughable charges against the very man who had been told to fall on his sword -- only symbolically, I fear -- so as to protect the rest of the mob; said charges not even relating to the crime itself, but the later lies told about it. In the end, it was all not unlike pretending to poke around Ted Bundy's garage for two years, the whole time promising unrelenting justice before the cameras and inspiring hope among a number of the victims, only to conclude by hauling the serial killer in for an afternoon on a traffic violation.

And for this, apparently, Mr. Fitzmas still has his fans among those who imagine themselves opponents to Bush.
