Serve the Servants 

I guess it's not surprising:
Heading off on their modern version of a Grand Tour this summer, the 22-year-old Jenna and Barbara will also do an interview and photo spread for Vogue and then work for Bush-Cheney 2004 -- likely in the Arlington headquarters but perhaps also making speeches to rally support for their old man.
Q: will Pansy Division perform at the speeches?

Also, Milbank provides this reminiscence, from just after the Bush twins were arrested for alcohol:
"I would urge all of you to very carefully think through how much you want to pursue this," then-press secretary Ari Fleischer warned menacingly. After a Houston Chronicle reporter asked Fleischer if the president had talked to his daughters about substance abuse, Fleischer later called the reporter to say, ominously, that his question had been "noted in the building."
It occurs to me that in the summer of 2001 the press was starting to get pretty mean toward the Bushes, and that perhaps the terrorist attacks of 9-11-01 constituted our collective "punishment."

Like the Bush daughters, the country had gone astray; we had to be called to account.
