Pootie-Poot?

So, I'm browsing through the various news tabs I've opened up in Firefox, and I run across this in CNN:

Sen. Ben Nelson finally has succeeded in getting President Bush to stop calling him by the nickname "Nellie."

And:

He has called Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, "Pootie-Poot," while aide Karen Hughes gets "High Prophet."

You know, there are days when the news is so bizarre that you really just can't top it with any additional commentary. I just kind of wonder when America suddenly became Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
