I have gone from running the day to day show to being the grunt that does all the work. And, I am certain that this is being done on purpose (others in the office agree and have even mentioned it to HR). It seems as if they are trying to see how much shit I'll take before I leave. This combined with watching my boss prove daily that he has no idea what is is doing makes for a very miserable working experience.
Take my opinion for what it's worth, and I know it's easier said than done, but simply do not think about all this negative stuff if you can. From what I'm reading, your future at this particular company is pretty much done, and you seem to be coming to peace with that. The fact that it's not your fault and is an injustice is unfortunately irrelevant - corporate environments are snake pits and you can never fully control what happens around you and to you. Zone it all out, and focus on what's next for you. In the mean time, save and print all the dirt, emails, craptastic stuff you can - because when the injustice turns into pushing you out and screwing you even more, you'll have some ammo to negotiate a better package.
