Poodle: Tony Blair has been criticised for his slavish support of Bush

Tony Blair faced fresh humiliation over his ‘special relationship’ with George Bush last night after a U.S. official admitted it is ‘totally one-sided’.

Kendall Myers, a State Department analyst, said the Iraq war had been a ‘done deal’ and gave a damning verdict on the Prime Minister’s attempts to influence the U.S.

He said: “We typically ignore them and take no notice – it is a sad business.”

The comments will fuel criticism that Mr Blair has acted as Mr Bush’s “poodle” and has had little, or no, influence.

    PSYCHOTICS MORE LIKELY TO SUPPORT BUSH

    A collective “I told you so” will ripple through the world of Bush-bashers once news of Christopher Lohse’s study gets out. Lohse, a social work master’s student at Southern Connecticut State University, says he has proven what many progressives have probably suspected for years: a direct link between mental illness and support for President Bush.

    The thesis draws on a survey of 69 psychiatric outpatients in three Connecticut locations during the 2004 presidential election. Lohse’s study, backed by SCSU Psychology professor Jaak Rakfeldt and statistician Misty Ginacola, found a correlation between the severity of a person’s psychosis and their preferences for president: The more psychotic the voter, the more likely they were to vote for Bush.

    “Bush supporters had significantly less knowledge about current issues, government and politics than those who supported Kerry,” the study says. Lohse says the trend isn’t unique to Bush: A 1977 study by Frumkin & Ibrahim found psychiatric patients preferred Nixon over McGovern in the 1972 election.

    For his part, Lohse is a self-described “Reagan revolution fanatic” but said that W. is just “beyond the pale.”
