A federal judge in California said Wednesday that the wiretapping law established by Congress was the “exclusive” means for the president to eavesdrop on Americans, and he rejected the government’s claim that the president’s constitutional authority as commander in chief trumped that law.Shocking!

It is just scary that these Radical Judicial Activists do NOT believe that the President has majikal special powers when dressed up as a War President...
I mean what next?
They will not allow the President to send out Death Squads against dissident elements who do not support the Divinity of Dubya???
Where Will It All End?
Thank GOD! We have RoboBushCheney!!!!
major comedic update here:
A Bush-41-appointed Federal District Judge yesterday became the third judge -- out of three who have ruled on the issue -- to reject the Bush administration's claim that Article II entitles the President to override or ignore the provisions of FISA. Yesterday's decision by Judge Vaughn Walker of the Northern District of California also guts the central claims for telecom immunity and gives the lie to the excuses coming from Congress as to why the new FISA bill is some sort of important "concession." More than anything else, this decision is but the most recent demonstration that, with this new FISA bill, our political establishment is doing what it now habitually does: namely, ensuring that the political and corporate elite who break our laws on purpose are immune from consequences.Ah yes....
