An Amazing Series of Coincidences
Follow the bouncing ball...
George Ryan is convicted of racketeering in Illinois on Monday. Prosecutor on the case - Patrick Fitzgerald.
Having tied that one up with a bow, Fitzgerald returns to other still opened matters, such as the leak of a covert CIA agent's identity. A new grand jury starts considering evidence on Wednesday morning.
Also on Wednesday, amazingly, Karl Rove, boy-genuis and Bush's Backup Brain (such as it is) is relieved of his 'policy' portfolio. You know, the one where he says 'how can we play politics with people's lives by grandstanding on Social Security and Medicare?'
But I'm sure these latter two events have nothing to do with one another.
