Bushie and The Big O
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 07:34 PM by lady lib
AKA Laura Bush and Olympia Snowe.

What did you think I meant?

Anyhow, here's a list of nicknames granted by Commander Bunnypants - who has himself accumulated quite the collection of appellations around here.

File this under worthless, but mildly amusing information:

BTW, Barbara Boxer is "Ali." Pretty dang clever, eh? ;)

1. Doesn't he sometimes refer to Laura as the "lump in the bed?"
I've never understood why * can't just call people by their given names. The nicknames seem pretty childish and demeaning.

Love the list, BTW! :hi:

2. The nicknames ARE childish and demeaning.
That's the point. People are bullied by him into buying the idea that it's "cute" that he does it, but it's a demeaning, belittling tactic.

(I had a boss who did that. Hated it.)

5. Yeah, for some reason "lump in the bed" didn't make it on the list,
but then again, neither did "pickles." I agree with you and Lindsay about it being childish and demeaning behavior, particularly when used by someone in a position of power over those he's characterizing.

Glad you loved the list, Suich. :hi back at you: :hi:

3. When I saw Big O...
I thought, please God, don't give Bush a Big Black Megadeus! Whew, glad I was wrong...

4. It is a way to overcome his own deep insecurity

.... by belittling and demeaning people in a passive aggressive way. There is a core of deep shame and anger in that man.

7. The man is a study in psychopathology....
and he keeps getting more and more complex as time goes by.
