Huh--remember when our highly respected U.S. attorney, Patrick Fitzgerald, turned up on a firing list at the DOJ when he was investigating Karl Rove about the Valerie Plame leak? And everyone thought that Rove was trying to cover his ass? And a few people, including John Kass, said no, you'd think that would be why, but the pressure was actually originating from corrupt Illinois pols involved in Operation Board Games?

This has kind of become conventional wisdom, but it's worth noting that Patrick Fitzgerald confirmed it to Congress.
