Weekly "Bush Twins in Uniform" Watch

Weekly "Bush Twins in Uniform" Watch

It has now been 601 days since Jenna and Not-Jenna Bush, the slacker offspring of Preznit Numnutz, graduated from college and they are still not in the uniform of the US armed services.

Why? Because they have other priorities. They are too busy partying down in Georgetown to show their support for the war by enlisting their chickenhawk-child selves into the military service, that's why.

One of the more memorable cadence chants at the September protest in DC went like this: "Not our sons, not our fathers. If you want war, send your daughters."

Be sure to sign the Buzzflash petition and demand that the Bush offspring enlist, or else bring the troops home. If it's not a cause noble enough for any of the children of the Bush Dynasty to join, then it's not noble enough for our sons and daughters to die for.

Oh, and be sure to see the commentary from a student at the University of Virginia on last week's Bush Twins in Uniform Watch, containing what appears to be an open letter to fellow student Philip Alito, son of the current nominee to SCOTUS.
