Southside's best at his finest: Pat Hickey on Fitz's quest for the great whale of Chicago corruption.
However, the Great White Whale of Corruption involves an endless network of financial self-interest formed by Progressives and leagued with machine politics - Rezko is not the mythical barnacle goose that spawned from fungus - rather he is a Golden Mushoom upon which tons of self-interest born from banking, labor, organized crime, Hyde Park Goo-goos and also the daffy old Machine Bosses were heaped. This network includes our President, Shorebank, Real Estate Dealers like Allison Davis, labor spawned political Iagos Rahm Emanuel, Valerie Jarrett and SEIU's Andy Stern. However Ahab Fitzgerald sees not the WHALE. . . only the White Smelt Blago.. . ."to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee!"I've wondered too, as this trial looks more and more a smelt fry than a big kill, that maybe Captain Fitz's plan is hoping some of those 400 years Blagojevich may face will stick and flip the Guv on the real goal of the Great White Whale known as Chicago's Mayor.
