BRANDOLAND: Talking to God...For You!

Wednesday, September 01, 2004

Well, I did learn one cool thing last night; the Bush Twins refer to Babs as “Gammie.” Pronounced “Gay-mee.”


Obviously, the origin of this nickname took place during their childhood…when the Twins struggled to say “Grandma.” Unless it was GW who struggled to say “Grandma.”

I like that explanation better.

The hi-lites:

JENNA: “It's great to be here. We love Arnold. Isn't he awesome? Thanks to him, if one of us ever decides to marry a Democrat, nobody can complain -- ”


JENNA: “Except maybe our grandmother, Barbara. And if she doesn't like it, we would definitely hear about it.”

God, I’d hate to be on the end of that rant. Can you imagine? Key-rhist.

JENNA: “We already know she doesn't like some of our clothes, our music, or most of the TV shows we watch.”

You’re kidding.

JENNA: “Gammie, we love you dearly, but you're just not very hip. She thinks ‘Sex and the City’ is something married people do, but never talk about.”

Uh, close. She thinks “Sex and the city” is something that everyone else does…except her. Actually, there is evidence that she’s had sex, what, five times, so go figure.

YOUNG BARBARA: “Jenna and I are really not very political, but we love our dad too much to stand back and watch from the sidelines. We realized that this would be his last campaign, and we wanted to be a part of it.”

You guys aren’t gonna help your dad run for commissioner of Major League Baseball? Come on.

YOUNG BARBARA: “Besides, since we've graduated from college, we're looking around for something to do for the next few years. Kind of like dad.”

No, sweetie. “Dad” knows what he’s gonna do for the next four years. He’s gonna privatize, deregulate, and bomb Iran.

JENNA: “I think I know a lot about campaigns. After all, my grandfather and my dad have both run for president, so I put myself in charge of strategy. Then I got an angry call from some guy named Karl.”

You mean…the guy who wrote your jokes got an angry phone call from Karl.

I wonder where that dude is today? I'm thinking...East River.

BARBARA: “We knew we had something to offer. I mean, we've traveled the world; we've studied abroad. But when we started coming home with foreign policy advise, dad made us call Condi.”

Because he knew she could use the help.

More later….
