Nicknamed by Dubya

A canonical list of nicknames granted to various people by the 43rd President of the United States.

Sure, everybody knows that Karl Rove is "Turd Blossom" and former FEMA chief Michael Brown is "Brownie."

But did you know that, worryingly, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez's nickname is "Fredo?"

Dude, would you want Fredo running *anything*?

A minor nit to pick: at least some of these weren't actually created by Dubya. George H.W. Bush has been "Poppy" since his prep-school days, before Dubya was even a gleam in the old man's eye. Still, this is good stuff.
