Palate cleanser: Fitzgerald to stay on as US Attorney.

Well, this cheers me up after the last story.  Via Hot Air Headlines:

Blago, Libby prosecutor to stay on

Patrick Fitzgerald, the U.S. attorney in Chicago who brought criminal fraud charges against Rod Blagojevich, will be staying in his job in the Obama administration, even though he was appointed to the position by President George W. Bush.


But Fitzgerald will not be asked to move on. Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois has recommended that Eric Holder, the new attorney general, keep Fitzgerald. That suggestion was “positively received,” according to officials at the Justice Department and Sen. Durbin’s office.

Mind you, failure to do this at least would have been… remarked upon.
