I agree with those who think Barack Obama ought to keep Patrick Fitzgerald on as US Attorney in Chicago, and it has nothing to do with the fact that he's a fellow Amherst man. I do find cause for amusement, however.
In another example of the, uh, fluidity of political points of view, we hear Republicans demanding that he remain. Fair enough. But can we forget their outrage, and their attempts to discredit him as a political hack, when he was going after Scooter Libby? Just wondering. And smiling.
Personally, I like this idea:
"...Congress should give Patrick Fitzgerald the job of investigating the Bush administration's war crimes. Give him complete freedom from interference, and let the chips fall where they may."
