Along with being a member of the classic gay duo Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick, it appears that Mr. Fitzgerald is not so "non-partisan" as he is made out to be.

www.newsmax.com...

I predict nothing will come out of this 2 year witch hunt in terms of guilty verdicts. I guess this is the level you have to stoop to when you can't win at the ballot box on your non-existing ideas.

So his record is 60 Republicans vs. 2 Democrats in a state notoriously run by corrupt Democrats?

Doesn't sound so apolitical to me :shk:

And if we cross our fingers and wish really, really hard, then maybe it will all go away. The desperation is palatable in the air, all right.

He was good enough to prosecute John Gotti and Shiek Omar Abdul Rahman, but when he indicts Libby, then you insinuate that he's homosexual and partisan?

Wow, that's kinda pathetic.

Good luck with that line of attack, fellas.

Wait...

So why does it matte if he is a homosexual?
Do they not make good lawyers?
I guess we should stop allowing anyone that is gay to practice law, as well as women, blacks, any minority group in fact...Old Boys Network here we come once more.

Hell no.

So what if he has found 60 Republican's to press charges against and only 2 democrats? If all 62 are guilty than he has done a damn good job and I would rather he does his job than try to balance the book to please a few people.

He is there to make America a better place, the numbers game doesn't make it a better place.

Head...sand...out.

Certainly Kenneth Starr way totally non-partisan. I wonder why Ashcroft would have picked Fitzgerald if he is sooo left? Ashcroft is as right as rain.

Lighten up. I'm not saying he is gay. His name just fits an old Irish joke (Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick) Geez, don't be so serious.

Don't attempt to make jokes about him as a way to discredit the guy. I doubt anyone found it that funny and to be honest if you can't base your arguement around fact than maybe there isn't one there?

Also why do you include the line; "this is the level you have to stoop to when you can't win at the ballot box on your non-existing ideas" are you claiming he is being funded by a political party?

Is it hard for you to believe some people want to see justice be served?

Here was me thinking we were removing partisan politics from the forums...

Your outrage is duly noted... I'm sure we will never see this type of rhetorical device used by... You.


I got the joke... It was mildly amusing.

PTS is precisely the the place for such comments, and partisan barbs... We wouldn't have it any other way.

Yes, Mirthful Me, if there is some form of evidence provided to back up the claim that he isn't doing his job properly.

However, he has showed none. He has not showed P.F. doing his job in a biased fashion or being blinded by his 'love' for one political party.

Please.
He used the words good and lawyer without the word dead being anywhere in the sentence.
There's no way he was being serious.

I'm a good, non-dead, lawyer.

Thank you very much.

Pretty young to be a lawyer, aren't you?

Besides, what you've described yourself as does not exist.

Edited because of my painful inability to type.

I've been accepted onto the bar and onto my course.

So I am able to get insured now and begin to be involved in basic legal cases, from in the firm themselves to being in court but not getting to cross-reference the witnesses. :-)

You have to remember we start College at 16 here, it is fully possible to qualify as a Lawyer if you fast track by 20, although I'll be fully done and able to own my own firm or become a partner at 25. :-) different education system.

hehe - you know this one?



A guy phones a law office and says: "I want to speak to my lawyer."

The receptionist replies, "I'm sorry but he died last week."

The next day he phones again and asks the same question. The receptionist replies, "I told you yesterday, he died last week."

The next day he calls again and asks to speak to his lawyer. By this time the receptionist is getting a little annoyed and says, "I keep telling you that your lawyer died last week. Why do you keep calling?"

The guy says, "It gives me such pleasure to hear you say that."


or this one?


Bernie an old codger, was critically ill. Feeling that death was near, he called his lawyer.

"I want to become a lawyer. How much is it for that express degree you told me about?" "It's $50,000", the lawyer said, "But why? You'll be dead soon, why do you want to become a lawyer?"

"That's my business!" answers Bernie, "Get me the course!"

Four days later, Bernie got his law degree. His lawyer was at his bedside making sure his bill could be paid. Suddenly the old man was racked with fits of coughing, and it was clear that this would be the end. Still curious, the lawyer leaned over and said,

"Please Bernie, before it's too late, tell me why you wanted to get a law degree so badly before you died?"

In a faint whisper, as he breathed his last, Bernie said: "One less lawyer."

Oh, that was priceless!

I can't wait to enjoy the same pleasure.

I can't wait. Do you happen to have the guy's lawyer's number?

A lawyer, is just someone "whose profession is to give legal advice and assistance to clients and represent them in court or in other legal matters".

It is easier to say lawyer then for me to turn around and say, Barrister, Solicitor, Solicitor with rights of advocacy and so on and so fourth, because many of these titles are not used anywhere outside of the United Kingdom and it involves me then having to explain what a barrister is. [As I have before now.]

Edit: Another typo.

How about my favorite, Esquire?

Still, sounds like the level of standards for legalese is pretty low in the birthplace of our legal system. Not sure I'd trust a 19 year old to do my last will and testament. Since most 16 year olds aren't mentally prepped for the regemine of legal study, what, with the flooding of hormones and all, it's hard to imagine them fairing well, fast track or not.

If I need a liar...er...a lawyer, I'd rather use one that is the usual 26yr old and above types we have in the states.

The magazine?


I always preferred shyster or mouthpiece... But that's just me.

No matter, a life form is a lifeform... Just depends on whether you want to be seen in public with it or not.

Perry Mason Monkeys, not just for that dramatic cross-referencing anymore...
