Well, "Margarita" IS Spanish, isn't it?

Via the delightful World O'Crap, an example of how the latest Bush generation benefits from the soft bigotry of low expectations:

Everyone seems to know about Jenna Bush, the blond half of the partying first twins. But, like her sister, Barbara, who's caring for AIDS-afflicted children in Africa, the 23-year-old has shelved her dancing shoes and is following in the footsteps of her mom, Laura, the former Texas school librarian. Jenna has turned her attention to Washington's Hispanic Mount Pleasant neighborhood, coteaching second graders at the highly regarded Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School. And, we're hearing, the University of Texas English major is wowing folks at the school, which teaches English along with Spanish or French. One example: Just last month, her second-grade class dropped into the neighborhood public library, marching quietly up to the second floor where there's a sprawling children's reading
room. "It was great, and very sweet," recalls a librarian. "She was just a good
teacher, and the kids were hanging all over her." It was the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, and Jenna was helping the kids find books and showing them how
to handle the check-out. She never raised her voice or showed frustration.
Friends say she even speaks a little Spanish.

Wow! She actually has a job, and has been observed performing it! She's just like one of us, only with better boots!

"We were all really impressed. It was all very positive," says the librarian. "It made me feel hopeful that even though she's been around all that power, she's a real erson. And I really liked her boots."
