Weekly "Bush Twins in Uniform" Watch

It has now been 700 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 graduated from Sandhurst this month and could be on his way 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?"

UPDATE: Whoa!!! Is this the end of the Bush Twins? Are they being downsized? Oh, no!

Duty calls

*Queen Elizabeth II regarding the likelihood that her grandchildren, Princes William and Harry, will see military combat duty:

"I think it is inevitable that they are going to see action of some kind, somewhere, in the not too distant future, particularly as young officers, because we are already out in Iraq and Afghanistan, and so they are open to those sorts of deployment just as everybody else is, as I was."

*President Bush regarding the likelihood that his children --

No. Wait.

The British seem to have a different system.
