Treason is ok
Catching a traitor is just disgusting. Just ask Fox news, they're pushing the idea that the investigation into the Plame leak is the "criminalization of politics." Thinkprogress has the run down.
Wouldn't a better way to say it be: "When some degenerate scumbag blows the cover of a CIA agent working on nonprolferation matters as part of a political vendetta, that sick twisted puke is harming our national security and commiting a crime against the United States of America, and a politician who does that has engaged in the "criminalization of politics."
