"Get me Pootie-Poot on the phone."
Is it just me, or does someone smell some slash fiction cooking here?
"Pootie...it's been so long since I looked into your eyes, and felt your soul."
"Booshie...I been changed man seence I taste your beeg Texas beefsteak and sleep in beeg Texas keeng-size bed."
Bleah...spit...gag. Perish the thought.
Um...is it just me that's bothered by the informality our President is using to address Russia's president? Has anyone else even HEARD of this? Is this a sign of early senility? A gay love affair? Or just another dumb Bushism? Or am I just being uptight again?

It's just another attempt from Bush to be the funny and charming guy he's not. And perhaps to show his disrespect for Putin, what do I know.

I think he respects Putin, but I think it's just waaaaay too informal of a language for heads of state to be using towards eachother. I mean the things he says...looking into his eyes and seeing his soul? What the? It's one thing to think it, but to say it? In public? The guy needs some serious coaching on protocol. Maybe I'm nasty-minded (I don't think so, really), but the Pootie-Poot thing was just so gaaaaay. And maybe he didn't mean it as gay, he probably was trying to be funny and charming like you say, and failing miserably and making a fool of himself.
In my family, poot was a politer word for fart.

It seems to me he take everyone out to his ranch for a barbeque and some burgers and run around in his cowboyhat and try to be cool and charming at once ;o]

I've got news for him. He's no Clint Eastwood.
