George W. Bush is...

an arrogant frat jock who never grew up.

We've all heard of Bush's nicknames for Karl Rove (Boy Genius, Turd Blossom) and FEMA's Michael Brown (Brownie) and Enron's Ken Lay (Kenny Boy).

From NNDB, via Political Wire, here's more:

Tony Blair: Landslide
Barbara Boxer: Ali
Dick Cheney: Big Time
Maureen Dowd: Cobra
Dianne Feinstein: Frazier
Bill Frist: Fristy
Alberto Gonzales: Fredo
Dennis Hastert: Speak
Karen Hughes: High Prophet, The Enforcer, Hurricane Karen
Colin Powell: Balloonfoot
Vladimir Putin: Pootie-Poot
Condoleezza Rice: Guru

Bestowing pet names is thinly veiled condescension of course, especially in the workplace.

I wonder what they call him in private?
