[Bushista] is a recently popular nonce-word, formed by adding the pejorative [-ista] ('follower of', 'acolyte of') to the surname of former US president George W. Bush.

Since the term [Bushista] is used only by opponents of the Bush administration the terms [Bushista[ will normally include meanings such as:

#: lax in the defence of civil liberties;

#: politically opportunistic;

#: uninformed about foreign policy issues;

#: narrowly bigoted (especially about religion);

#: prone to political nepotism.

and so on.
