Weekly "Bush Twins in Uniform" Watch

It has now been 658 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 royal counterparts in the UK? The Royal Family, unlike the Bush Crime Family, has a centuries-long tradition of honorable military service. Prince Andrew was a combat helicopter pilot in La Guerre de las Malvinas (aka the Falklands War), Prince William, direct 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?"

I love this concept.

Fortunately, we have the chance in Virginia to elect a true leader to the US Senate, a man who has served with distinction, and who's son is about to serve as a Marine in Iraq.

That man is former Navy Secretary and Vietnam hero James Webb.

If you didn't catch Jim on Hardball with Chris Matthews tonight, check out his live blog on DailyKos at:

We need help raising funds against rich lobbyists like Harris Miller and career establishment politicians like George Allen!

Check out Webb's "$300,000 in 3 weeks campaign"!!
