Why haven't the Bush twins joined up?

Six American servicewomen died the other day.

I'm just wondering why the Bush twins haven't joined the war effort yet.

Just wondering.

I have had this same thought ever since the war started. And now since they have graduated from college, what meaningful things have they been doing with their lives.

if it means ripping apart the Bush family, then yes, it's very productive.

Are we implying that because of who they are, meaning their lineage, they are not productive? What productive things have anyone of us in here done? Did we get the opportunity to grow, learn, make mistakes, and live our lives without the shadow of the press over us?

Well actually I'd guarantee that most of us HAVE done more productive things with our lives than the Bush twins.

If you look at the Kerry daughters, they seem to have more of a commitment to public service.

Heavens, even the British Princes William and Harry have done charity work, gone to Africa, etc.

You're right. I actually sorta like the twins but I couldn't resist giggling at the jokes, nonetheless. They are easy targets for cheap jokes, I'm afraid.

but, seriously folks, i live in DC and their exploits are legend, and i have a friend who calls the cops every time Jenna's friends decide to park in his driveway, and the fact remains that THEY DON'T HAVE JOBS.

so, why not join the army?

it does seem hypocritical, at the very least, to ask those from the social classes that struggle the most to send their sons and daughters to die in a country that presented absolutely no threat to the US while his spoiled girls (who are reputed to be rather pleasant, actually, and Bar is pretty liberal, i'm told) do shots at Smith's Point in Georgetown and dance at the Blue Gin.
