Let the idiocy go

Washington Post op-ed columnist Richard Cohen thinks that "conspiracy" and "[leaking] official secrets" are "trivial charges and wants special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to "return to Chicago and prosecute some real criminals" instead of continuing to investigate the outing of a CIA operative.

In his piece "Let This Leak Go," Cohen even refers to this crime as "alleged" -- not just as though a specific person hasn't yet had a trial in the matter, but as if he's not sure that such a leak even happened.

Cohen also seems content with the fact that "there's so much crime in Washington already" and tries to use this to buttress his absolutely absurd argument ("desperate plea"?) for Fitzpatrick to let it go.

What? Is Cohen afraid that "Apres Miller comes [lui]"?
