By Kashmir Horseshoe
(Crawford TX) The Bush brothers today shocked
supporters by announcing that they had volunteered for active military duty in
Iraq. The three, George, Jeb and Neil, calling themselves the Three Musketeers,
will report for a physical this week and continue on to basic training later

the Chief Executive. "We hope that this show of selfless determination on our
part will send a message to our friends, quiet our detractors and maybe even
rescue the concept of a volunteer army in the future."
