Barone-- Fitzgerald has questions to answer

Michael Barone is not only the smartest political observer in America today, he is an honors grad of Harvard Law School whose outstanding law school performance garnered him a very prestigious clerkship with a Federal appellate judge (one step below the Supremes). In his post about Victoria Toensing's review of the perfidy surrounding the handling of the Plame affair, he writes:
About Wilson, a serial liar, there is not really much more to say
I think the most troubling questions she raises are about Patrick Fitzgerald, who "knew from the day he took office that the facts did not support a violation of the act." So why did he continue the investigation? I think he has a responsibility to answer that question.

Anyone who has watched the beltway over the last 30 years knows that a prosecutor who had abused White House aides so badly would be tarred and feathered by the MSM if they were Democrats. In fact, there doesn't even have to be any wrongdoing by the prosecutor for the MSM to shower abuse. The fact that there have been no calls for an accounting from Fitzgerald tells you all you need to know about MSM claims of being fair and balanced.
