Last night, Jenna and Barbara Bush solidified their position as probably the most fun First Daughters the White House will see with their short speech/silly comedy routine last night (text of speech here):
JENNA: You know all those times when you're growing up and your parents embarrass you? Well, this is payback time on live TV.
BARBARA: Take this. I know it's hard to believe, but our parents' favorite term of endearment for each other is actually Bushy.
Gothamist almost expected some canned studio laugh track to come in. Anyway, our friend JW pointed out that the Kerry daughters are smart and seemingly intellectual, wondering if the Bush twins would get any smarter. Gothamist doubts that matters as much as making happy hour. We may not want their dad to be our president, but we wouldn't mind doing shots with them (we'd see a movie with Alexandra Kerry and ask Vanessa about this cold we can't shake).
Jodi Wilgoren's NY Times article notes they were underdressed (casual chic - not Talbots conservative) and that quoting Outkast would "fill any coolness gap their father might face with the MTV set." Insert a Nelson Muntz HA-ha here. Vanessa Grigoriadis had a great feature about the Bush girls in New York; basically, they seem like your average 21 year-olds.
