But today, after hearing the First Bushling, Jenna, on NPR's Day to Day, I realized I had been very wrong. Jenna, at least, has served her nation very valiantly during this war. Here's how she responded [click on audio] to Day to Day host Madeleine Brand's question about her failure to volunteer for Iraq:
I hope I served the United States by living in Latin America and I hope I was a good representative of the US.
Hearing that, I was struck by how similar her service is to that of her father's. Just as Our Leader fought vietcongunistofascism by drunkenly hunting for Ho Chi Minh in honky tonks across Texas and Alabama, our brave little Jenna stumbles naked down Argentine hotel hallways in pursuit of our potential enemies. She is certainly her father's daughter.
