Livid Judge James Robertson resigns as head of Potemkin Court

According to an unholy alliance of the WaPo and MSNBC, U.S. District Judge James Robertson has resigned from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a court responsible for oversight of governmental surveillance in intelligence cases.

Although he gave no specific reason for his resignation, it's undoubtedly related the recent bombshell revelations that the NSA has been illegally directed by Bush to clandestinely conduct surveillance on U.S. citizens without a warrant. Apparently, after the NSA illegally spied on U.S. citizens at the behest of Bush, they'd take the information they gleaned surreptitiously to the Potemkin Court for a nice whitewash.

For some reason, Judge James Robertson didn't like the little charade. I, for one, welcome our new NSA overlords, even if it does come at the expense of our most honorable FISA overlords.
