60. Hehehe, gustsy ....
but I think there might actually be a more effective point to make.

I say this, in part, because most americans can understand girls not enlisting. Not to mention a lot of people are going to think there would be a lot of hassles for the military and secret service in handling this hypothetical enlistment.

So the more effective point that I think that could be made is this: None of the Bush family have ever volunteered to work at a USO or done the equivalent thereof.

I won't belabor the point, but many of us older DU types can remember seeing the countless popular culture examples of how the most beautiful stars of Hollywood used to volunteer their time during WWII. I'm only in my 40's but I've seen countless examples of that.

Those soldiers looked really grateful of those efforts.

I think people will get that point better: The Bush twins haven't danced a single dance or handed out a single donut for these troops.

I'd like to see a photo of one of those beautiful WWII era starlets doing her duty with the caption going something like "Are the twins too good for this?"

or the same image but in a split screen with the twins and the caption ...

"During a real war everyone pitches in. Even the famous and privileged."

I think that this could be effective and it's also fair. Bushco doesn't like to remind people of wars that involved pain and sacrifice.
