9. revealing, isn't it! His choice of "memory aids" ...
I'm convinced that Bush's much-vaunted ability to remember people's names hinges on the fact that he deliberately assigns them insulting and demeaning nicknames. So essentially, the only way in which they can make a dent in his consciousness is on his OWN terms ... that's how he sees them. Foreign leaders too -- "Pootie-Poot" = President Putin) and "Dino"(saur) = Prime Minister Chretien.

And now that he's powerful, he can make these nicknames public knowledge, and people are afraid to do anything about it -- he probably gets a childish thrill out of it.
