Weekly "Bush Twins in Uniform" Watch

It has now been 622 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.

Why can't they be like their rough counterparts in the UK? The Royal Family, unlike the Bush family, has a centuries-long tradition of honorable military service. Prince Andrew was a combat helicopter pilot in the Malvinas (aka the Falklands War), Prince William, heir to the throne, has entered Sandhurst (Britain's West Point), and little brother Prince Harry graduates Sandhurst in April and could be sent to Iraq as a cavalry lieutenant.

How's that shit, Jenna and Not-Jenna? That make you a proud father, Baby Doc?

The rest you, those who think the proud military tradition of this nation needs to be upheld by those most likely to profit from it, 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.

And check out The Yellow Elephant blog, which asks the question "It's their war; why aren't they fighting it?"

Don't forget Jenna's beau, Henry Hager, a Republican political appointee at the Commerce Department. Why hasn't he enlisted? Ask him yourself:

Ask his father, Assistant Secretary of Education John Hager, how he feels about his son missing out on his generation's destiny to prove their manhood. Ask him yourself:

john(dot)hager(at)ed(dot)gov

And ask Jenna why, if he won't enlist, she hasn't dumped that wuss yet.
