Why Do Liberals want to criminalize Conservatism?

From Byron York at The Corner
The left-wing filmmaker Robert Greenwald, a favorite on the Huffington Post circuit, sends out an email promoting a top item on the forward-looking progressive agenda:
Send Karl Rove to Jail

Dear Supporter,

This sounds like a dream, doesn't it? Well, it's not. We have a unique opportunity right now to send Karl Rove to jail, but only if we take immediate action.

All we have to do is pressure the 40 members of the House Judiciary Committee, make them hold Rove in contempt and send him to jail. We've never had such a direct opportunity to hold Rove accountable. No, this is not enough punishment for his years and years of crimes, but it's a huge start, and will send a very clear message to the entire Bush administration….

Check out Send Karl Rove to Jail [video], and sign our petition to ensure that the HJC holds Rove in contempt.
Oh, right. It's part of their overall pattern of not wanting to debate the merits of various policies.
