WASHINGTON, DC -- Citing a desire to spend less time with their family, Jenna and Barbara Bush have resigned their positions as official White House Twins, effectively immediately.
A White House spokesperson stressed that the twins' departure was in no way related to the recent resignations of Karl Rove, Tony Snow, and Alberto Gonzales. The official said several factors contributed to the girls' decision, including Jenna's impending marriage and Barbara's lifelong desire to party with Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
“We look forward to no longer being the object of Republican frat boy fantasies,” said former first daughter Barbara in an unprepared statement. “And there's no need for us to be pixieish and cute anymore now that Dad's no longer running for anything.” As she spoke, she formed the letter “L” with her thumb and forefinger.
The twins will be replaced on an interim basis by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen until a new pair of First Daughters can be approved by the Senate.
Former senior policy advisor Rove has not made his future plans public. However, Gonzales announced today he will be joining cholo punk band Manic Hispanic on their upcoming world tour.
The high-level departures leave Vice President Dick Cheney as the last close Bush advisor remaining in the administration. The vice president, who was reported to be in a secure location somewhere beneath the Washington Monument, issued a statement through his press secretary.
“The vice president has no plans to resign,” the spokesperson said. “And if anyone tries to make him, he wants you to know that he's got a thermonuclear weapon and knows how to use it.”
