Even Republicians that know Fitzgerald support him
...I've gotten a lot of questions about this from people who say some conservatives are hitting the airwaves with preemptive suggestions that my friend Pat Fitzgerald may not be as apolitical as his press clippings indicate...Let me just say this. Pat is at least as apolitical as his press clippings suggest...
Pat Fitzgerald is the best prosecutor I have ever seen. By a mile. He is also the straightest shooter I have ever seen – by at least that much. And most importantly, he is a good man.
This investigation has gone on for 22 months. Most of the evidence was collected before autumn 2004...If Pat were political – or, worse, if he somehow had it in for the Bush administration – it was fully within his power to return indictments in the weeks before the November elections, which would almost certainly have cinched things for Senator Kerry. It is something, I am quite certain, it would never even have occurred to him to do. The only thing the guy I know would do is bring charges or close the case without charges when the facts of the investigation warranted doing so.
This from a magazine that
- Cordially invites you to celebrate Willam F. Buckley Jr.'s birthday'
- Will sell you a 52 card desk of the 52 Most Dangerous Liberals;
- Offers you a children's book of wholesome literature to instill cherished values.
In summary, the very bastion of the conservative movement.
