"He's gone," Pelosi said of Bush. "He's so gone."

A fine quotation, and one that I've often used to describe the state of The Great Leader's mind.

It came from Nancy Pelosi, leader of the current Democratic minority in the US House of Representatives. In a 45 minute interview with the SF Chronicle, she offered "her strongest condemnation yet of President Bush on Wednesday, assailing him as incompetent and declaring that the only way for the United States to triumph in Iraq is to replace him as commander in chief.

"Bush is an incompetent leader. In fact, he's not a leader," Pelosi said. "He's a person who has no judgment, no experience and no knowledge of the subjects that he has to decide upon."

All good points and all things we've pretty much been able to figure out since even before The Great Leader was selected.

Still, Pelosi gives a larger voice to the smattering of those among us who have been out there articulating the problem for some time. "He's gone... he's so gone"?

I pray she's right, and we make it to that point.
