    Wonder how the media will spin it when he is found innocent because Fitzgerald blew the whistle to quick in order to save Obama from a criminal conviction?

    "The Fix is in" will probably be his defining moment and an historical sound byte for all time.

    Illinois political leaders are among the worst. The country itself isn't too far behind though. Ted Stevens is nothing compared to this loser. Lets wiretap all these guys. They did it to us you know.
