Maybe this should be in "rock and roll", but every time I hear the deep fix's "candy-floss cowboy" I think of Bush. I think the term describes him brilliantly

He dresses like a big, bad, son of the wild frontier, but he has something strangely childish about him (candy-floss is very much associated with childhood in my mind) perhaps its his innocence/ignorance, whatever it is, it always makes me feel bad about criticising him, like I'm picking on some kid who can't help how he is.

"Brutal and scared" is a good summary of his current position and isn't "Destroy all the things that bewilder you" pretty much the neo-con way of life?
