Pat Oliphant for July 29, 2008
Legacy Inspector (Angel of Death): George W. Bush, you'll be departing soon. Time to get your legacy examined. You have dismantled many of the country's social gains of the past 70 years... You have driven the national deficit to stratospheric levels, led the country into a disastrous and unnecessary war, politicized government departments, countenanced torture, shredded the constitution at every opportunity, ruined the nation's reputation abroad, on and on and on and on... In short, you are no doubt the worst president this country has ever known! Anything you wish to add? President George W. Bush: My surge! My troop surge is working!! Inspector: We can add that without your initial arrogant stupidity, no surge would have been necessary. Punk: Which brings us to 4,000 U.S. war dead. G.W. gets a visit from the legacy inspector.
