Bush Bugged by Noise

From US News "Washington Whispers":

President Bush has a thing about noises. First we learned that he absolutely hates when a cellular phone starts ringing during meetings. Now we're told that he can't stand buzzing bugs in the West Wing. Former Press Secretary Tony Snow says that when a little black fly shows up, Bush gets to work "chasing flies around the Oval Office. It drives him crazy when flies get in." And Bush is so well known as a fly hunter among his White House staff, says Snow, that somebody "made him White House fly swatters."

Pop Prog knee-jerk reactions:

a) All that noise must get in the way of the voices in his head.
b) Solution: Call Dick Cheney--just take cover first.
c) I guess he's worried someone is bugging his phone.
d) "Chasing flies around"--Wasn't Larry Craig doing that in airport restrooms?
