In Which We Nominate Patrick Fitzgerald As Special "Torture" Prosecutor

In last night's show, Rachel and Michael Isikoff discussed Attorney General Eric Holder's assertion that he is considering a torture investigation. So, who might be the DOJ's choice to run such an investigation? Why not Patrick Fitzgerald?

As an appointed Special Prosecutor, he successfully prosecuted Scooter Libby in the Valerie Plame case. And of course he's the bad ass that arrested Blagojevich. So he's clearly non-partisan. As I Googled possible names for a possible special prosecutor in a possible case against those who either sanctioned or committed torture, his name was the only one I found. He has the reputation as a by the book guy with integrity and most consider him above reproach. What more could we want? So, let Obama wash his hands. Have Holder appoint Fitzgerald Special Counsel. He doesn't seem afraid to hold anyone accountable, and we could sure use a bit of accountability.

Plus, he's so super dorky, he's cool. And you know how much we love the dork in these here parts.
