“The origin of ‘Dubya’ from says that the columnist Molly Ivins coined it in 1995; it’s the spelled-out Texas-drawl version of Bush’s middle initial (for “Walker”). Her editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram tells us Ivins “owned ‘Dubya’ from the mid-’90s to 1999, then it caught on with everyone else.” Well, not really everyone.

And almost everybody else calls him “Mr. President.”
