Selling Jenna


Here's George Bush, father and funder of the global war on human trafficking, talking about his daughter with the estimable People magazine:

Q: Tell us about your future son-in-law, Henry Hager. Did he do right and ask for Jenna's hand?

The President: He kind of sidled up to me and said, Can I come and see you? We were sitting outside the presidential cabin here, and he professed his love for Jenna and said, would I mind if he married her? And I said, Got a deal. [Laughter] And I'm of the school, once you make the sale, move on. But he had some other points he wanted [to make]. He wanted to talk about how he would be financially responsible.

As an aside, who meets George Bush and thinks "Hey, I'd better defend my fiscal record"?
