Oopsie daisy! It appears that President Bush has admitted he secretly ordered the National Security Agency (NSA) to eavesdrop on Americans without ever seeking court approval. I mean what's wrong with that? That whole approval thing is so annoying and takes so long and the new intern's phone calls were so hot...Wait! I mean...err its critical for National Security purposes. Yeah defending the homeland and that kind of stuff.

Well it seems that to eavesdrop you need this thing called...a constitutionally-required, court approved, warrant. Under the program authorized by GW following the 9/11 attacks the NSA monitored the international phone calls and e-mails of hundreds and possibly thousands of people inside this country, allowing the government to spy on its own citizens.

Constitutional court approval? Spying? Are you serious? Doesn't that deal with all these civil liberties and individual rights mumbo jumbo? I mean really, GW does what is best, you know this. Why must people crimp his style so? What type of style you ask? Well if you watched the address his "style" is obviously, "Hello I am a robot and I am here to lead you to self annihilation," well that's not really a style per se but the point that he is a robot still stands.

Read more about the speech, Bush's approval ratings, and the increases in domestic wiretapping at Google News.

Note: Look, I am not anti-wire tap because if you wanted to wiretap me you could. What you would find is that I am probably the most interesting person on the planet with massive amounts of very very cool stuff to say about any topic you can think of. So go ahead tap me. Do it! I dare you. I will blow your mind!

Good Slate article on the President,wiretapping, and the power of NSA, "Listening In and Naming Names."

Well you know what they say about that Constitution, "It's just a goddamned piece of paper".
