Weekly "Bush Twins in Uniform" Watch

It has now been 805 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.

And now we learn that the son of Senator John McCain has enlisted in the US Marine Corps. That means that as soon as he's done with his training, he's going to be on his way to The Sandbox. Now there's a role model right in their own political party for Jenna and Not-Jenna.

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

BTW, they are also still not pregnant with their own Snowflake Babies. If they can't join the service, the least they could do would be to get themselves impregnated with a couple of blastocytes that would otherwise go into the garbage. Remember what Farnsworth always says: Baste 'em, don't waste 'em.

Excellent observations.
When you were growing up, did it EVER occur to you that our country could end up with a cowardly, evil, AWOL idiot like George W. Bush in charge?

Ah, and BTW ... I'm one (peacetime) pissed off vet, too, Farnsworth. Nice t'meetcha.

I don't get it, the John McCain thing. He is one of us. A real hero. A POW. A Veteran. He seems to watch this administration fuck things up because he's Republican and they are too? I don't get it. What does Bu$hCo have on him? Powell too?

Bring back the draft. That'll get the campusses protesting again. No, wait, we don't want Four dead in O-HI-O again.
