In the "speaking truth to power" department...

Ladies and gentleman, I give you Mr Harry Taylor, who at a presidential "town-meeting" in Charlotte NC had the courage to stand up and tell Chimpie he was an embarassment:

"I feel like despite your rhetoric, that compassion and common sense have been left far behind during your administration," Taylor said, standing in a balcony seat and looking down at Bush on stage. "And I would hope from time to time that you have the humility and grace to be ashamed of yourself."
Mr Taylor was more courteous than I would have been, going on to thank Junior for the "right" to express such disagreement. The best that Junior could come up with was "you're welcome."

No date the fascist wingnut Keyboard Commandos (e.g., the right-wing blogosphere) will switch off playing video-games long enough to search for dirt on Mr Taylor, but the fact remains that the man had the courage to speak truth to power. Well done, sir.
