Honcho del Toro!

Does something magic happen when a Bush male steps onto the ancient soil of Nippon? And, did Bar ever teach her rambunctious boys manners?
Deep inside Mike Allen’s Notebook on the Washington Post’s Federal Page resides this interesting vignette:

Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi puzzled his listeners, and apparently Bush, when he called the president "Beef Man" during a photo session after their dinner in Tokyo…The mystery was solved Saturday when the White House released another of the interviews Bush had with Asian journalists. An interviewer from Fuji TV asked Bush if he would be tasting sushi, since it's well known that "you're not really particularly in favor of the raw fish." "Well, I'm a beef man," Bush replied."You know I like good beef. Japan's got some of the greatest beef in the world. But I'm also, hopefully, a good enough guest not to demand a particular menu from my host." Koizumi took the hint and served steak.

Gosh, look what declassified into the mainstream media, as well as Fox News, this past weekend:

Prescott Bush was one of seven directors of Union Banking Corp., a New York investment bank owned by a bank controlled by the Thyssen family, according to recently declassified National Archives documents reviewed by The Associated Press...Fritz Thyssen was an early financial supporter of Hitler.
