Comma Chameleon

I've been thinking about Bush's comma remark and about how history will have a lot of commas when describing his tenure as president:
Bush, George W. Forty-third president of the United States responsible for severely damaging the nation's longterm fiscal stability[comma] dangerously ignoring the threat of global warming[comma] politicizing every aspect of government[comma] incompetently botching response after a hurricane leading to a national disaster[comma] fighting to legalize torture[comma] fighting to curtail the constitution[comma] waging an unprovoked war[comma] waging said unprovoked war grossly incompetently despite warnings[comma] failing to change course in said uprovoked war[comma] stroking U.S. resentment[comma] spreading the flames of a global jihadist movement[comma] and taking a lot of vacation time[comma] finishing term the least popular of all presidents.
Anybody have any other commas that need to be added to the list?
