Maybe the bushies think that somehow we will all be distracted by Jenna's book that focuses on the life of one 17 year old H.I.V. positive single mother in Panama and we will see just how REALLY compassionate the Bush family is, all the while they ignore poverty and health issues for children at home.
Apparently Jenna has left her drinkin' and drivin' days behind. She has suddenly seemed to appear front and center after years of bush - dad trying to keep her antics under wraps and out of public view. Now she has become the poster girl for "sharing and caring". But I hope the glare from that hunk of diamond and sapphire that she sports on her ring finger, indicating her engagement to fellow conservative HenryHager (his dad worked for Karl Rove), didn't blind any of those poor folks she was working with in Panama.
Jenna had spent a year working as a third grade teacher in a Washington Charter School before she was sent on an 8 month "internship" with UNICEF in Latin America to write case histories of children living in poverty. How convenient. Perfect set up to prepare for an eventual book launch, just in time to try to shore up her dads sinking reputation and to deflect the political spotlight from the Republican's total lack of compassion.
This whole high profile book launch is being orchestrated by Washington lawyer Robert Barnett, another well positioned conservative who also has Dick Cheney's daughter Lynne as a client. While I missed Jenna's first ever TV interview with Diane Sawyer on 20/20 last night, quotes from that interview seem to indicate, like father, like daughter. When asked about how theprez is doing she replied "He's doing a great job!" (Shades of "Brownie" after Katrina). But I guess it's all to be expected.
