Separation phase beginning

Crooks and Liars uncovered an amazing apology from a conservative LA radio announcer, who has abruptly decided that Bush is the worst president ever. He gives a very long list of his complaints about Bush, summarizing at one point with some remarks about guts:
Katrina, Harriet Myers, The Dubai Port Deal, skyrocketing gas prices, shrinking wages for working people, staggering debt, astronomical foreign debt, outsourcing, open borders, contempt for the opinion of the American people, the war on science, media manipulation, faith based initives, a cavalier attitude toward fundamental freedoms-- this President has run the most arrogant and out-of-touch administration in my lifetime, perhaps, in any American’s lifetime.

You can make a case that Abraham Lincoln did what he had to do, the public be damned. If you roll the dice on your gut and you’re right, history remembers you well. But, when your gut led you from one business failure to another, when your gut told you to trade Sammy Sosa to the Cubs, and you use the same gut to send our sons and daughters to fight and die in a distraction from the real war on terror, then history will and should be unapologetic in its condemnation.
Looks like old Stephen Colbert's meme farm is ready for harvest. It'll be a bumper crop this year.

This guy is still angry at the Democrats, but now he concedes that his dislike for the Dems made him unable to see Bush for who he was:
[A]ccept my apology for allowing partisanship to blind me to an obvious truth; our President is incapable of the tasks he is charged with. I almost feel sorry for him. He is clearly in over his head.
All very true. Like so many other incompetent people, Bush has made a difficult set of situations immeasurably worse for the people who have to clean up afterwards.

The Crooks and Liars piece has the audio, too.
