Just for your info...

If you were wondering whether the President's daughters were really the bimbos portrayed by comedians, this might be of interest:

Bush twins graduate, join re-election campaign
BATON ROUGE, La. -- For years, they have been as elusive as unicorns, shunning the spotlight and taking no part in their father's high-flying political life.

But today, a new corner is turned in the lives of the Bush twins. President Bush's daughters, Barbara and Jenna, 22, are graduating from their respective universities and plan to join their father's re-election effort, at least for a while...

...Whether Bush wins or loses, Jenna plans to move to New York City to share an apartment with friends and do volunteer work with children, according to People.

Barbara will become a paid staffer, probably this summer, with a pediatric AIDS program based at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, officials said. The job will take her to clinics in Africa...

And if you don't think the newsmedia has two standards, there's this:
"While the Bush girls' predecessor, the similarly protected Chelsea Clinton, projected the reserved image of a shy ballerina, the Bush girls are something different....
Chelsea? A "shy ballerina?" glerrrk! What can I say? Barbara and Jenna, Enjoy life! DRINK UP!
