Completely Disgusting Yet Not All That Surprising Quote of the Day


“She said to her teenage kid, ‘Here’s the fetus.’ There’s no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life."

-- George W. Bush, winning the Creepy Confession of the Year award by admitting to Matt Lauer that his mother, Barbara Bush, had a miscarriage when he was a teenager and kept the dead fetus in a jar

You just know that when the fetus's memoir comes out in a couple of years it's gonna sit down with Lauer and tell him the story of how traumatized it was the first time mom introduced it to its brain-dead brother.

(Adding: The happy ending? That fetus grew up to become the host of Access Hollywood.)

Since HW left office I've often though Barbara was odd, and this just confirms it. No wonder her sons are all a bit tweaked.

Uggggh...I can't stand to hear him say, 'read the book' one more time. HE NEEDS to read a fucking book!

(Pardon my language. I try to use "uggggh" sparingly.)

That actually takes the cake for FUCKED UP. That's disturbing. Creepy.

It's annoying to see his worthless ass back in the spotlight, but it's also somewhat satisfying to see him reduced to being a shitty author on a book tour, begging people to buy his ghost-written crap.

So this boils down to Barbara Bush abused her kids, and America paid the price for it as well?

No wonder they've never talked about him before...everybody knows that it was Jar Jar who ruined the series.

Oh God...

I can't breathe...

That's the funniest fucking thing I've read since God knows when.

(Not the quote. Your response.)

Fetus Bush would've been a better president than Dubya.

It's called having a respect for life, Chez. You know...LIFE! It's a four-letter word that starts with an L and ends in an E? Jesus Q. Christ, McFly! When will you learn?

When this once-free nation had a dedication to a culture of life, Godlessness was down and so were abortions.

Now that we abandoned those core principles as they were laid out in the Constitution, we mock heart-warming stories such as these. I will be getting this book to put alongside Miss Sarah's book in my shed.

The Honorable George Walker Bush had to make tough decisions to keep His people free during the prosperous years spanning from 2001-2008.

Today, we have a communist in the White House. In the Oval Office, Hussein Obama takes his shirt off to display his chiseled abs, arms and pecs while dancing with terrorists to lustful music.

Now that WE THE PEOPLE are taking our country back, this disgusting activity will cease.

Amen,
Bill

what. the. fuck. I wonder if the fetus started talking to him. That's like a plot of some "Twilight Zone" episode if TZ was on HBO.

That's disgusting! The only way I could forgive Barbara is the loss of her older daughter to luekemia around age three. But such a bizarre story to tell on your mom, to make some point about his anti-abortion stance.

What the balls is this shit I just read.

Whoever pulls a cast of that fetus would make a fortune selling copies. Y'know, maybe in a little cradle, with some straw ...

Isn't that kind of the opposite of respecting life? I won't pretend to know the Bible beyond what I learned from VeggieTales, but I was under the impression that there were rules for death and burial and that they don't involve canning.

My mom had a miscarriage when I was a kid and we've talked about it since, but I still cannot imagine why anyone in the world would want to keep their dead fetus in a jar. Holy balls.

This reminds me of the Howard Stern radio broadcast the day after his wife miscarried. On the air Howard telephoned his wife and suggested they send a photo of the fetus in the toilet to her parents. Barbara Bush just might give Howard Stern some new ideas!

Capt Clown said...

But... isn't this just saying:

“She said to her teenage kid, ‘Here’s the fetus.’ There’s no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life."

...That he learned from his mother that respect for life means you should keep your dead fetuses in jars and show them around?

Like abortions are OK as long as you keep them as memorabilia?
