W pals bushwhack CIA leak prosecutor

From New York Daily News:
WASHINGTON - As the White House and Republicans brace for possible indictments in the CIA leak probe, defenders have launched a not-so-subtle campaign against the prosecutor handling the case. "He's a vile, detestable, moralistic person with no heart and no conscience who believes he's been tapped by God to do very important things," one White House ally said, referring to special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. … But now friends of the White House have started whispering that the Brooklyn-raised prosecutor is overzealous after it became clear that Bush political mastermind Karl Rove and Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis (Scooter) Libby, are in Fitzgerald's cross hairs. Such hints surfaced publicly for the first time yesterday when Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.), armed with comments that sources said were "shaped" by the White House, suggested Fitzgerald might nail someone on a "technicality" because they forgot something or misspoke.
That's certainly to be expected. When you don't like the message, impugn and assassinate the messenger. They are doing it to Delay's prosecutor in Texas. They are doing it to the Plame leak investigation special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, who happened to be a Bush appointee to the Northern District of Illinois and who was appointed by Bush's Justice Department to be the special prosecutor. And, interestingly enough, they had nothing but praise for the special prosecutor Ken Starr, who was a Republican investigating a Democrat. But that's politics. Our side never does wrong and the other side never does right, and anyone who challenges our side must be wrong. In the ironic quote of the day...
"He's a vile, detestable, moralistic person with no heart and no conscience who believes he's been tapped by God to do very important things," one White House ally said, referring to special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald.
I think that ally must have had Fitzgerald confused with his own boss, W.
