The Republican Talking Points being tossed around the country includes, at the top of the list, the "criminalization of politics."
They think the criminalization of politics is when a Special Prosecutor goes after someone for a trivial crime - like perjury or obstruction of justice. Where were they when Bill Clinton was impeached for those very things? They didn't stand up for him and call it a criminalization of politics back then. It wasn't a criminalization of politics back then and it isn't so now.
Here's what a criminalization of politics really is: outing a CIA agent to get political revenge for revealing an administration's lies which helped lead the country into a conflict which has cost 2,000 lives. Tom Delay has been complaining about a criminalization of politics too - www.usatoday.com/news/Washington/2005-10-27-delay-letter_x.htm - but he is a criminal in politics. The criminalization of politics is when a politician abuses the system and breaks the law to gain political power, not when a prosecutor goes after these crook-politicians.
