I have news for you,
Mrs. Bush! You're pregnant!
I am! Oh, that's wonderful, doctor!
Well, now, hold on a minute. There's a problem. I'm afraid
that it's a Democrat.
A Democrat! Are you sure?
Yes. See these two genes? One's for health care reform
and the other is for improving the infrastructure. I
wouldn't be surprised if the little bugger popped
out literally hugging a tree.
Oh, my god! This can't be happening! My husband will
kill me! What can I do? I can't have this baby!
I understand, Barbara, so I'm going to give you...
something... to terminate the pregnancy.
Thank you, doctor! Lucky for me I'm pro-choice.
Yes. Lucky. Keep in mind that the process will be a
bit messy so here's a jar to put the fetus in.
In a jar? Why would I do that?
Oh, I don't know. Show it to your son. It'll probably
be the closest he'll ever get to a real liberal.
I was watching George Bush's inartful
interview with Matt Laurer ("Whah should ah ainser yer
when his now-famous anecdote about the "fetus
in a jar" came out of left field like a rhino driving a dump truck,
little family than before, if that's possible.
Now the Bushies are getting all kinds of blow-back over the specifics of the
story and the right-wing echo machine finds itself in the position of having
to validate what is probably just another desperate fever dream for attention
man-child's addled mind. I've actually heard callers to radio programs comment
perfectly natural, that it happens all the time, that sharing such a moment
with your children is not unusual.
So what's next? Do good Conservative families have to somehow acquire their own
fetus in a jar in order to keep up appearances and, in so doing, one-up the Liberal
scum down the street?
a cheap Chinese knock-off
on his show, available for three easy payments, etc. Will the banks close for
a new federal
"Fetus In A Jar" holiday? Will the Pledge of Allegiance soon be changed to read
"one nation, indivisible, under God, with a fetus in a jar, with liberty and
justice for all"?
Or will the American people ignore it like it didn't happen, like the sudden,
inexplicable toppling of World Trade Center 7 on 9-11?
I know where I'm placing my bets.
