Up until today, many Americans may have known that Pat Fitzgerald was a very tall man. Today they found out that he is a giant.
Of course, many of us here at the Lake have known that for quite some time.
I would like to take a moment to reflect upon what this man has accomplished through his masterful handling of both the investigation and the trial.
He has restored the faith of how many of us that THE SYSTEM CAN INDEED WORK. He has led through example, and set a standard for scrupulousness and faithfulness in office that translates to all branches of government.
He has been engaged in single combat by proxy with Dick Cheney and his proxies, been the target of countless slimes and other attempts to manipulate him into making a mistake, yet, not once has lost his temper. Not once has he retaliated. Unlike the Ken Starr, there were no impromptu press conferences in his driveway each morning. There were no leaks.
There was just simple hardworking integrity and fulfillment of duty.
