The Judge does not agree ...

and she tells them so, oh, oh, oh.

In the lawsuit brought against the NSA warrantless wiretapping program, government lawyers argued that the program is "an essential tool for the intelligence community in the war on terror." Such a position revealed to all that they had no actual legal argument in case, essentially basing it on, of all things, an appeal to fear. Imagine, the Bush administration appealing to fear. Say it ain't so!

Federal district court judge, Ann Diggs Taylor, an obviously-named liberal-leaning, terrorist patsy if ever there was one, noted the non-legalistic argument and ruled that the maligned NSA wiretapping program is illegal and unconstitutional. Taylor said,
Plaintiffs have prevailed, and the public interest is clear in this matter. It is the upholding of our Constitution,
apparently unaware that George Bush doesn't give a rat's ass about the Constitution, and who has cleverly noted that the Constitution is "just a goddamned piece of paper." Which is true. It is. Well, I don't know that God has actually damned the Constitution, but we know of a group who probably thinks she did (they'd also be pissed about that pronoun, too).

I'm certainly looking forward to seeing what Ann Coulter will recommend as a means of dealing with this particular "activist judge." Hanging? poison? Oh, the anticipation is fierce.
