A February 23 Washington Post article asserted that it "would be a blow" to special counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald's "reputation as a nonpartisan prosecutor with a record of high-profile successes" (emphasis added) if a jury finds Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, not guilty of perjury, false statements, and obstruction of justice. But the article never mentioned that Fitzgerald is a Bush administration political appointee. President Bush nominated Fitzgerald to his current position as U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois on September 19, 2001. The Senate confirmed him by unanimous consent on October 23, 2001.
I wonder, does WaPo realize that they are directly implying* that following the rule of law is a partisan exercise? That takes IOKIYAR to a whole new level.
