Bush uses charades to communicate

Washington DC - (Ass Mess): The Presidential communication method of George W Bush resembles a game of charades, a study suggests.

Researchers from St Andrews University in Scotland have shown that Bush intentionally modifies or repeats his signals to get a message across.

The scientists said they believed all great dictators have this capability and suggested the skill may have evolved "millions of years ago".

The study had been published in the journal Current Biology and involved dozens of leading Global Piss Process luminaries.

Evolutionary psychologist Professor Sir Richard Byrne said today:

"We were interested in the intentions behind communication and have been watching Bush for a number of years now.

"When homo sapiens communicate they routinely use our knowledge of what an audience knows, and what they don't want it to know, automatically.

"In our study we wanted to find out whether Bush, who ought to have so much flexibility with his communication, does the same thing."

The study focused on setting up a situation where six White House aides were presented with a Presidential Executive Order that was clearly off the wall and watched their reactions.

All the aides were seen to gesture to attract Karl Rove's attention so as to mimic the President's exact anticipated explanation behind the texts.

"We then watched Bush himself trying to explain really difficult situations such as the Presidential Pardon for Scooter Libby," Prof Byrne said.

"We noticed immediately that as the heat was turned up on Mr Bush he began to use the body language and gestures normally associated with the Xmastime family game of charades to help him out of the tricky spot."

Professor Byrne has likened all the Bush Administration's decisions to a game of charades.

He told the scientific press today that: "Part of the skill is to do the miming and the gesturing in the cleverest way.

"This ability - to take into account how much individuals have understood you - and to modify what you do next, is probably quite an old trick in the White House and was last demonstrated most successfully by Richard Nixon before he was publicly busted over Watergate."
