Even Conservatives Hated Them....The verdict from the Fox News crew on Jenna, Barbara, and Laura is not good.

Bill Kristol: "The last half hour did not help, as far as I can tell, Bush's campaign for reelection."

Mort Kondracke: "Those two girls were ditzes. I'm surprised they were allowed on the program."

Fred Barnes: "I think she [Laura] had no place up there or the daughters either....Their mother said they'll be pursuing their own careers. I would advise them to look in some field other than comedy."

Now I don't think that anyone--anyone--casts their vote based on the family of the candidate. And that goes for people who really don't like Teresa, too. But it's gotta be pretty bad when the message discipline breaks down like this at Fox News.

UPDATE: Hi there, it's Kevin, taking advantage of my administrator privileges to barge in on Amy's post.

I just wanted to say that even though I was absolutely cringing throughout the entire performance by the Bush daughters, I was planning to hold my tongue because I think it's kind of cheap to make fun of political children. I mean, they're not pros or anything, just loving daughters of a misguided father.

But hey, as long as everyone else is doing it, why not join in! So let me just say that I agree with Mort Kondracke. And Fred Barnes. And Bill Kristol too. What a disaster. What an absolute disaster.
