First Lady Laura Bush and her newly married daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, will be appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show tomorrow. jenna_hager320.jpgThe show was taped last week and the threesome discussed Jenna's recent wedding and Ellen's upcoming nuptials.

Ellen took John McCain to task for his stance on marriage equality a week ago, and she didn't let the Bushes off the hook either. When Jenna mentioned how private and beautiful the Bush ranch is - perfect for weddings - Ellen steps up to the plate.

Details after the jump.

Among Jenna's topics with the host (the show was taped Thursday) is the wedding at the ranch, with the bride even showing off snapshots from the reception.

Observes DeGeneres: "So, the ranch was a great place to get married - it looked like nobody could fly over and get pictures or bother you, really."

"Yeah," concurs Hager, "that was really nice" - which prompts DeGeneres to ask, "So, can we borrow it for our wedding, can we get the ranch?"

"Sure," replies an obliging Hager.

"Okay, great," says DeGeneres.

So what do you think the chances are that George W. Bush is going to allow a celebrity to marry her lesbian partner at his ranch? I'm guessing that the confirmation phone calls won't get returned.

Was this the same daughter that stuck out her tongue at the White House Press Corps?

Was this the same daughter who has a history of alcohol and cocaine abuse?

And she and her mother have the nerve to go on television with a smart lesbian! This is rich! Jenna probably had the wedding at the ranch to avoid the possibility of anyone taking a picture! On her best day of writing children's books there is no way these women could keep up with Ellen

From the beginning of the Bush's it has been: Control the Message and Create an alternative reality.

Well, she still has more sense than her father!
