  1. "Pseudo-psycological examination"? I don't think so. I actually read the book, "Bush On The Couch" and the author is a psychiatrist with thirty years experience as an psychoanalyst. So what he wrote is not "pseudo". Unfortunately, according to the book Bush's psycological problems don't stem so much from issues involving his penis (the thematic underpinnings of the Wonkette's wonderful blog) but from the death of his sister in his childhood, the frequent absence of his father, and his mother's emotional detachment. Hence his alcoholism, sadism, and belligerence. But you were just joking anyway, right?
    No, his penis envy is just a small part of what is wrong with this man child. Bush is a traffic jam of his own making. When he awakes he has no idea what has to be done first. I think his wife or his mother has to change the sheets from his bed wetting. Than clean him by given him a bath, I do not think he can take a shower because he has fear of being alone. These are just a few morning problems which they have to deal with on a daily basis. Now mind you he has only got out of bed. pardarn my texas english partner. He has his own broke back mountain issue he has not work out yet, and I fear for the children around him....yes his penis envy is only a small part of what is wrong with this man child..
