Judge Rules Wiretapping Illegal

A Federal judge in Detroit ruled in favor of the ACLU in its lawsuit over the warrantless wiretapping program. Unconstitutional, she said. Cease immediately, she said.

Now watch for the wingnut overreaction to another "activist" judge, calling for the Fundo-Xian equivalent of a fatwa against her.

Predictably the DOJ filed an appeal against the ruling. Never mind what Der Monkey Fuehrer/Liar-in-Chief said back in April 2004: "Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about 'wiretap', it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so.".

Of course he also told a member of his staff once upon a time to quit thowing the constitution up in his face all the time: "It's just a goddamn piece of paper!"

It's obvious that we're being led by an unruly two year old. Someone needs to give him his bottle and send him to bed; I think I liked it better when he was (openly) drinking.
