A White House Wedding?

So it's official, Jenna Bush, one half of the sometimes infamous 'Bush Twins' has anounced her engagement to Henry Hager, son of prominent Virginia politician John Hager.

For most people that would be good news but some people are having a little bit of trouble getting over their BDS to wish the long time couple well (though amazingly the commentors at Think Progress have actually jumped to her defense, at least somewhat).

What is blatantly apparent is most on the far left have been caught in some kind of time warp, completely fixated on the past image of the Bush's as party girl socialites, a la Paris Hilton, something that hasn't really been an issue since sometime in 2001 when Jenna was caught trying to use a fake ID to buy alcohol; stupid to be sure, but hardly a life defining moment for a 19 year old college student.

As far as I know most Hilton wannabes don't teach at a Public Charter schools in DC for a year and a half or intern at UNICEF where Jenna spends her much of her week teaching at shelters throughout Latin America.

So congrats to the happy couple and best wishes to a happy life together.
