President Trashaholic, George W. Bush

Our lovely President, he of the inability to stand upon the Segway (which was designed so that virtually anyone could stand on it), and he of the inability to ride a mountain bike without taking out numerous Welsh/Scottish/Irish cops, has now gone a step farther and intruded upon the dignity of the famed Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City. The Waldorf serves things like "slow poached vermont farm egg with lobster tails," and "pistachio crusted foie gras," but our magnificent president took a step beyond realms only imagined by mere mortals. Food and Wine reports:

I’m not sure what those famous guests eat/ate when they stay there, but I do know that when President George Bush stays at the hotel, he likes to order bologna sandwiches on white bread with mayonnaise, with Doritos on the side.
Ugh. Bologna sandwich? From the freaking Waldorf?? There are times I think that the guy is just a well-bred Connecticut Yankee who is playing dumb to impress all the rubes, but then there are times, like this one, when I think he is an idiot savant without the savant part.
