Twins Make Laura Cry

From Holden:

And George may dock their allowance if they go to their stylist’s gay marriage:

When Washington-area beautician Erwin Gomez and his longtime partner James Packard celebrate their marital vows with 400 of their closest friends next month, two of Gomez’s best customers will probably be in attendance: President Bush’s twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara.


Bush’s daughters have expressed an enthusiastic desire to go to Gomez and Packard’s Sept. 11 wedding celebration at their home in Laytonsville, Md.

“I gave them the party invitation, and they said, ‘That sounds great, we’d love to come – it sounds like a lot of fun,'” Gomez said.


While Gomez holds the hard-carousing girls in high regard (“so casual and so real”), his disgust for their father’s politics is obvious.

“I think it’s wrong – he has no right to touch that [same-sex marriage],” he said. “He’s trying to change the freedom of America. … History is repeating itself, just like blacks and Jews were discriminated against.”


Yesterday, the First Twins’ spokeswoman, Susan Whitson, had only this to say: “At this point I cannot confirm that the twins are attending. I only comment on official campaign activities.”

Oh, the humanity!
