Weekly "Bush Twins in Uniform" Watch

It has now been 749 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 in April and could be on his way to Iraq as a cavalry lieutenant.

Those of you 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 think that possibly Jennna is not partying so much at the present. She has not been in a family picture since Easter while Barbara has.

This issue is something to get excited about? Could it be that Daddy and the Juniorettes are actually doing the military a service by either sliding out of the TANG or not going in altogether? Could it be that their presence had been / would be detrimental to the good of the service? Regardless of connexions and fame? Could it be another military organisation like "Stripes" (or any other wHollyweird mis-take on the military) with two "Private Benjamins" needing their raising completed?

Bush is promoting a constitutional amendment trying to forbid the two of them from getting married.

Yeah, maybe, but that's not the point.
Besides, see my original post on this issue. The fact that they were presidential offspring didn't deter other First Family children from donning the uniform and serving with distinction, now did it?
