Whirling around the Blago-sphere

I hate to seem unduly cynical and skeptical, but there are aspects of the Blagojevich arrest and its subsequent wetting-pants-with-delight reactions among the media that seem beyond credibility.

What sets off my poltical GPS alarm is the intensity with which Patrick J. Fitzgerald went after Blagojevich and the gingerly and gentle treatment he gave Karl Rove.

Perhaps as the case moves through the grand jury stage, we will have some insights into just how much partisan politics may be shaping this case.
