-phrase used in reference to John F. Kerry (D-MA).
John Kerry is a rich woman's pet! Let's just refer to him as The Poodle.
Nickname for Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the UK; popular in London; Mr. Blair is widely ridiculed as "Bush's Poodle" by his own citizens for his obeisance to Dubya's warmongering crusade to attack Iraq.
Reference: Google Bush Blair AND Endless Love and/or Gay Bar; both are videos circulated on the internet that illustrate this point.
The poodle will do whatever Dubbya says. Fetch Tony! Heal Tony! Good boy Tony! Bloody poodle!
