Barbara Bush Makes A PSA Supporting Gay Marriage

But with this new public service announcement supporting gay marriage, she may just change that. Barbara now lives in New York and is the president of a health nonprofit, Global Health Corps. And is it just me, or does she have really pretty blue eyes? Her mom, Laura Bush, is also an advocate for gay marriage. Could you guys not have decided this when you lived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and had a little more sway? [Newser] Keep reading »

Buck-Wild Bushes: Secret Service Agents Dish About The Bush Twins In A Tell-All

At first glance, Jenna and Barbara Bush look like polite and proper daughters standing with their presidential parents, Laura and George W. But apparently the wholesome twosome were quite a rebellious pair. A new tell-all book reveals that Jenna and Barbara annoyed the bejeezus out of their secret service agents. And, sheesh, you know it’s bad when secret service agents start talking. A good portion of Ronald Kessler’s book, In the President’s Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect, which will hit bookstores next month, is dedicated to the girls’ various escape methods and the wild goose chases they led their agents on. Not to mention the girls’ many public faux paus cleaned up by agents—most notably protecting Jenna after her drunk-off-his-ass fiancé started a fight in a bar. A former Washington Post reporter, Kessler documents the Bushies’ entertaining past while he looks into the Obama’s secret service present. Somehow I just don’t think protecting Sasha and Malia will be as tiring. Too much “Hannah Montana” is probably their biggest worry. [New York Post] Keep reading »
