G.W. Bush legalizes martial law?

I don't tend to get involved with political issues (particularly because mine wildly differ with most of my peers'), but this struck me oddly. A post on BoingBoing described how Bush declared a sort of martial law legal. (Martial law is the system of rules that takes effect [usually after a formal declaration] when a military authority takes control of the normal administration of justice [Wikipedia].)
For example: Under martial law, one can be arrested, sentenced, and jailed by a police officer. This has HUGE (or, dare I say it, HUEG) implications for protestors, or those who are generally politically motivated.

Visit the BoingBoing post for a synopsis of this Toward Freedom article.
Also, visit this Slashdot article for more technical info.

Giuliani better step the fuck up, or I am voting democrat.
But... Hillary?
