Day One: Fitzmas II — Fitzy’s Wrath
Well, well. What have we learned?
1. Patrick Fitzgerald is afraid of nobody, and he got convictions on all of them. George Ryan. Connie Black. Scooter Libby (of a sort). If I were Richard M. Daley, Mayor, I would set up a hotline to his lawyers, pronto.
2. AG Lisa Madigan was just on teevee, saying that she is willing, as a last resort, to go to the Illinois Supreme Court to have them declare Blagojevich incapable of office. He is certainly on borrowed time, and even that is running short.
3. Nobody is safe. Even Barack Obama needs to sweat. Any call that he has ever made to The Man With The Hair That Dare Not Speak Its Name will be scrutinized. This is the new birth certificate, friends.
4. Tomorrow will bring fresh hell. But it will be hard to have that news be as downright hilarious as today’s.
