It's now official: A federal judge ruled today that the wiretapping of the phone conversations of an Islamic charity and two American lawyers without a search warrant was illegal. George W. Bush is now officially a domestic criminal, on top of his already well established war crimes. If he's lucky, perhaps he can share a jail cell with Dick Cheney.

Of course, we all know that that's never going to happen, and for reasons of partisan healing it probably shouldn't happen, but it's fun to dream. On the other hand, who would have thought just three years ago that America would now have health-care reform signed into law by an African-American president?

I know my view here is biased and not very equanimous, but sometimes vindictiveness can be so much fun.

Great post and very important! I don't think your view is biased or not very equanimous but it's honest. Sometimes it's better to cut the bullshit and say things as they are.

Like I wrote before in Twitter and in Facebook, congratulations USA for your health care reform breakthrough! Wonderful news!

And W. Bush did terrible things with his sidekicks so it's good that his crimes are not forgotten. I hope he finds a peace in his heart and he can be a better person.

Be well!
