Young George W. Bush Traumatized By Barbara Bush’s Fetus Jar

by Jack Stuef

So did she take the pickles out first, or...Some people give lame reasons to be pro-life, but George W. Bush really has a pretty good excuse. While on his current “Say Anything To Get People To Buy My Book Nobody Would Read Otherwise” tour, Bush revealed to Matt Lauer the reason he dislikes abortion: His mother had a miscarriage when he was a teenager and liked to parade around her dead offspring in a jar. Holy hell, this family. “Junior, please pass sister fetus jar the mashed potatoes.” “Junior, please drive your brother the fetus jar to school.” “Junior, doesn’t your sister the fetus jar look beautiful in her prom dress? Pull her out of the goo and pin that corsage on her, wouldn’t you? Then give her a kiss goodbye. She’d best be going or she’ll be late!”

“She said to her teenage kid, ‘Here’s the fetus,’ ” the shockingly candid Bush told NBC’s Matt Lauer, gesturing as if he were holding the jar during the TV chat, a DVD of which The Post exclusively obtained.

“There’s no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life,” said the former president [...]

But “the purpose of the story wasn’t to try show the evolution of a pro-life point of view,” Bush insisted to Lauer.

It was to scare children on Halloween?

“It was really to show how my mom and I developed a relationship.”

Oh Lord, did the two of them have sex? This almost excuses the whole torture thing. [NYP]

SecretMuslin November 8, 2010 at 2:45 pm

Christ almighty – every detail of this story is horrendous.

On a side note, it's such a shame for our planet and everything that inhabits it that Bar didn't miscarry one pregnancy prior…

slappypaddy November 8, 2010 at 3:41 pm

or at least all the boys.

freakishlywrong November 8, 2010 at 2:46 pm

“There’s no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life,”

But only if it's a miscarried zygote in a jar. Once it's born? Meh.

OC_Surf_Serf November 8, 2010 at 3:51 pm

Oh, they seem to get re-interested about the time those zygotes are old enough to off to war…

RandyAyn November 11, 2010 at 11:59 am

or screw

Bonzos_Bed_Time November 8, 2010 at 2:46 pm

This is what passes for family bonding in Kennebunkport.

On Maine license plates it says: Live free and pass the fetus jar!

Wode_tian_ya November 9, 2010 at 11:26 am

No, that would be New Hampshire.

Failure_Artist November 11, 2010 at 2:49 pm

No, Maine is "Fetusland".

NorbertsRevenge November 8, 2010 at 2:47 pm

Oh Lord. I need a drink.

Hmmm, maybe a Pickleback.

OneDollarJuana November 8, 2010 at 5:04 pm

So, does George recovering from fetus alcohol syndrome?

lochnessmonster November 8, 2010 at 6:03 pm

That may be why he started drinking himself…what a screwed up family. That's exactly the kind of thing you should protect your children from. How's Babs taking this revelation he blurted out???

SayItWithWookies November 8, 2010 at 2:47 pm

That must've been the smart and talented one.

WriteyWriterton November 8, 2010 at 2:48 pm

After that, he couldn't drink enough, though he should have tried harder. For the kids, you know?

user-of-owls November 8, 2010 at 2:48 pm

If only his mother had carried a dead Iraqi child around in a Mason jar.

SheriffRoscoe November 8, 2010 at 2:48 pm

If there's anything I would imagine that could turn a little boy gay, it would be his mother showing him a sibling's fetus in a jar. This story proves homosexuality is determined genetically.

BaldarTFlagass November 8, 2010 at 2:49 pm

I hate to say this, but that is just fucking sick.

I hope she didn't pull a Santorum and make him sleep with the jar on "her" birthday or something.

Gopherit November 8, 2010 at 2:49 pm

What's worse? The alcohol the fetus was preserved in made some musky jungle juice at his high school graduation party.

Hidethematches November 8, 2010 at 2:49 pm

What I'm waiting for is the heart warming family story that shed light on his high execution rate as Governor of Texas.

devans00 November 10, 2010 at 5:22 am

You know there's gotta be a story. Scratching the jar to be told.

neiltheblaze November 8, 2010 at 2:50 pm

Yes – and when his sister died of leukemia in the hospital, instead of telling George his sister was dead, they brought him to the circus.

The Bush family are rich, live in abject denial always, and are emotionally stunted and dysfunctional. A perfect American family.

SorosBot November 8, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Who could have expected the guy who invaded another country just to work out his daddy issues would be psychologically fucked up?

StillGoinGreen November 8, 2010 at 3:31 pm

Didn't Cheney and Rumsfeld do this as well on the 1st day of the invasion?

PresBeeblebrox November 8, 2010 at 8:56 pm

True that… but I actually have a grudging respect for George H.W., who was a WWII vet and all. I mean, shit, he got a nuclear aircraft carrier named after him for his WWII flyboy days. What will W have named after him – a garbage scow? A fleet oiler?

neiltheblaze November 8, 2010 at 8:59 pm

They named a sewage treatment plant after him somewhere in California if I remember right. Oakland maybe? Wherever it was, it's a place with a sense of humor.

SorosBot November 8, 2010 at 2:50 pm

Rick Santorum and his wife did something similar with their miscarriage, and like Bush here he liked to brag about it without realizing how completely creepy and sick that kind of behavior is. The forced birthers do not act like normal human beings.

doxastic November 8, 2010 at 3:05 pm

Yeah, this move has been used enough for politicking that my new standard is pics or GTFO. I want proof of this pickled baby.

anniegetyourfun November 8, 2010 at 3:05 pm

I think that was a baby who died after being born. I'm not saying it wouldn't be traumatic for a child, just that… you know, I mean, it was a fully formed baby and not a Fetus in a Jar.

Jukesgrrl November 8, 2010 at 5:41 pm

The Santorums have genetic problems. In 1996 Karen Santorum gave birth to a premature baby that they knew far in advance wasn't expected to live. That is the corpse they named and took home to "introduce" to the other children. In a book about the experience, Mrs. Santorum wrote that she slept overnight with the decedent before returning it to the hospital. Since then, they have had another severely disabled child, a girl with a genetic disorder known as Trisomy 18 that is fatal in 90% of cases. The six physically healthy Santorum children are home schooled, so no doubt they are present for all of the difficulties surrounding these health issues.

anniegetyourfun November 8, 2010 at 5:54 pm

I know all about the Santorum thingie, but it's not as uncommon as you think to to dress and hold the body of a dead baby, or even take pictures. It sounds gruesome to someone outside of the experience, but it does seem to be a part of the grieving and healing process for many families.

I don't like Rick Santorum or anything he stands for, but I don't think that what they did was unusual for the circumstances.

Katydid November 8, 2010 at 7:18 pm

Yes, but I don't imagine it's good for children to have to experience that.

jus_wonderin November 8, 2010 at 2:51 pm

Did Sister Fetus have a curfew on the Prom date? And…who took her to the dance?

mereoblivion November 8, 2010 at 2:57 pm

Believe it was Joseph Gordon-Leavitt, but first Poppy Bush (Larry Miller) made her wear the pregnant suit so she wouldn't let her date "do" anything.

Kidneys4Sale November 8, 2010 at 2:59 pm

Why, the only boy on earth good enough for her, of course. Jeb.

GunTotingProgressive November 8, 2010 at 4:13 pm

I loved when they used that song in "Boogie Nights."

AutomaticPilot November 10, 2010 at 9:23 am

Maybe her prom date was that nice young man that Laura killed with her car.

imissopus November 8, 2010 at 2:51 pm

There’s no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life,” said the former president.

Yes, nothing quite portrays respect for and dignity of life as much as a woman keeping her miscarried fetus in a jar.

thedeathofirony November 8, 2010 at 3:10 pm

Exactly what I was thinking.

SorosBot November 8, 2010 at 3:22 pm

Hell, now I'm surprised they didn't have the sister who dies as a teenager stuffed and mounted on the wall.

glamourdammerung November 8, 2010 at 5:26 pm

There’s no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should respect life,” said the former president.

Except for the colored and mentally disabled inmates on death row.

Beowoof November 9, 2010 at 12:25 am

Really Barbara always impressed me as a woman for which a fetus in a jar was lunch. Was George pissed he didn't get any?

SheriffRoscoe November 8, 2010 at 2:52 pm

Has Wonkette ever been served up a better story, on a platter, in a jar, or otherwise? I can see the 'oh shit, nooo wayyyyy' look on our editor's face when this one came in.

user-of-owls November 8, 2010 at 3:07 pm

I'm really grateful you didn't include a blender in that list.

anniegetyourfun November 8, 2010 at 3:08 pm

Gawker's had it up for well over an hour. What I'm kind of curious to see, but also don't wanna, is how the comments on the actual original story are going. I think it was in the NY post?

anniegetyourfun November 8, 2010 at 3:10 pm

Oh, well, here you go:

Angela-in-Texas

11/08/2010 2:36 PM

Bush's refusal to criticize Obama says so much about his character, and contrasts strongly with Obama, who can't stop blaming Bush for all the problems that his liberal cronies in Congress started and he is now continuing. President Bush will always have my respect and gratitude for the way he handled himself during a very hard period. Obama on the other hand has done nothing but whine as he systematically destroys our economy.

Fare la Volpe November 8, 2010 at 3:14 pm

"Thank you, Hitler, for freeing us from the Nazis"

SorosBot November 8, 2010 at 3:21 pm

President Bush will always have my disrespect for the way he handled learning about the 9/11 attacks, staring vacantly into space before resuming reading a children's book.

anniegetyourfun November 8, 2010 at 3:51 pm

But how do you know he wasn't thinking about the fetus?

glamourdammerung November 8, 2010 at 5:23 pm

Bush has not really criticized Obama from what I have seen. Of course this is probably due to blaming Clinton for events as late as the last couple of months of Bush's second term.

anniegetyourfun November 8, 2010 at 5:31 pm

No, he hasn't, but that sure as fuck doesn't stop his goddamn supporters from doing so.

prommie November 8, 2010 at 3:18 pm

No motherfucking way this really happened. He's done gone and blew his last screw, is whats up, he is fucking deranged. This Did Not Happen. This is like Reagan remembering when he fought in WWII.

SheriffRoscoe November 8, 2010 at 3:33 pm

Conservatives aren't like us normal people, Prommie. They read the bible story about Abraham and Isaac, you know the one where dad almost guts and disembowels his son because the voice in his head told him to; and they're all like 'yeah I could see where I'd do that.' They're fucked up, deranged, whatever; but it DID happen buddy. It DID.

Jukesgrrl November 8, 2010 at 5:48 pm

Actually, this isn't even a new story. Like the reports of Laura Bush's responsibility for her boyfriend's death, it was reported years ago, although the MSM failed to follow up on it, choosing to imagine it had no bearing on the Bush family character and the voters wouldn't (shouldn't, more likely) be interested.

Bingo-lita. As much as I love the image of Babs rolling around on the bathroom floor elbow deep in the toilet scooping up bloody blobs of goo, it just doesn't go down like that. Plus Barbara Bush is pro-choice. So there's that.

I cannot wrap my head around that.
I have read some weird shit on Wonkette before, but..Jesus, Barb put a fetus in a jar.

the_problem_child November 8, 2010 at 7:00 pm

Okay, I can see putting a fetus in a jar (shock & grief make people do weird & irrational things) but showing it to your teenage son? That's just fucked up.

uncuntstitutional November 8, 2010 at 2:54 pm

That's right, Barb did her "abortion" the old fashioned way – with a bottle of beefeater and a jar of olives.

Too bad she chickened out halfway with W., and we just got a fetal alcohol president instead of a fetus in a jar.

Redhead November 8, 2010 at 8:24 pm

I didn't think anyone could say anything that would top Barbara putting a fetus in a jar and carrying it around. You proved me wrong. Bravo.

Though are we sure she miscarried, and didn't decide to abort the devil spawn of her and Dubya?

uncuntstitutional November 9, 2010 at 1:30 am

Wouldn't that be a deep darksecret for the ages? The miscarried fetus was Jr.'s!

Oedipus and Jocasta, except instead of stabbing his own eyes out, he murders a few million Iraqis

magginkat November 12, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Judging by the way Bush held his hands up to demonstrate the size of the jar, it must have been a late term abortion!

Cat_Damon November 8, 2010 at 2:54 pm

Thank you, Wonkette. I am never eating pickles again.

SorosBot November 8, 2010 at 3:01 pm

Now you've got me feeling hungry for some pickled fetus. Mmm, embryonic.

Extemporanus November 8, 2010 at 3:35 pm

Now you know why Dubya never ate Pickles, either.

StillGoinGreen November 8, 2010 at 3:36 pm

Hope the jar was clearly labeled, "DO NOT EAT – IT IS YOUR FUCKING SISTER!!".

LOL. I'm gonna steal this one, and put it on my facebook page.

Lascauxcaveman November 8, 2010 at 3:06 pm

If it were only the alcoholism and the coke habit, I'd have said W had dodged a bullet on this one. But … well, you know it all turned out.

What about the doctor? Who got that fetus in a jar? Is that SOP in Texas or Maine or whatever hospitals? Do you want fries with that?

I had the same thought: did she ask for a doggy bag or something?

freakishlywrong November 8, 2010 at 2:57 pm

That picture too. Also.
We just got shellacked at the polls and are awaiting teabagracy, add to that the horror and humiliation of enduring a Bush media blitz it's really almost too much to bear.

He worried about the color of the laces on his running shoes??1?

If anyone forgot, or time is healing the wound somewhat, as to how rotten and ignoble this asshole and his cronies were — well rip the stainless steel sutures out of my sternotomy scars.

HistoriCat November 8, 2010 at 3:08 pm

I think we should all be grateful that freeze-drying technology was not as advanced back then. Today she would have freeze-dried the fetus and carried it around sans jar.

That is some serious emotional stunting.

Great Moments in Presidential Childhood History:

George Washington: chopped down a cherry tree with a hatchet but did not lie about it

anniegetyourfun November 8, 2010 at 3:15 pm

Word has it that she was going to take it to the hospital (I don't know, for testing or something?) and had to store it in the meantime.

This was before Tupperware, I guess.

DashboardBuddha November 8, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Yeah…but if she took it to the hospital, it might have ended up next to Drew Barrymore's kids…and that simply is NOT a desirable neighborhood.

Zvi_Bleindmeis November 8, 2010 at 4:19 pm

Who among us doesn't keep fingernail clippings and jars of urine stored away just in case? I don't see what is so wrong about the George Washington impersonator's behavior. This is just three-dimensional scrapbooking, guys.

Swampgas_Man November 8, 2010 at 10:44 pm

"Preservation of Everything From Barb's HooHa" probably explains why they kept little Georgie.

In all seriousness though, that sounds horribly traumatic. It just makes me feel sorry for George and that's something I really don't like feeling, given that he's a smug, horrible, jackass who sent thousands of people to pointless deaths in his precious little wars, not to mention his other terrible offenses.
Oh hey look! I feel less bad for him now.

This is in addition to the behavior of G.H.W.B and Bar when Robin, Dubya's younger sister died. Dubya was not told much about what was happening to his sister and that must have been cruel and confusing.

Perhaps "Fetus in a Jar" can be Andy Samberg's and Justin Timberlake's hilarious sequel to their hit song "D**k in a Box".

JustPixelz November 8, 2010 at 3:10 pm

Yes it's terrible. And ordinarily private. Not because of squeamishness, but out of respect for the child or fetus or dreams that died.

uncuntstitutional November 8, 2010 at 3:18 pm

exactly: private, solemn, and you have to let go at some point. I don't think healthy well-adjusted people want to preserve and bring home the fetus to pass around for the family. and healthy, well-adjusted people don't cite that experience to support their political stance on abortion.

Ducksworthy November 8, 2010 at 3:22 pm

In W's case this episode is responsible for his entire political philosophy.

Rotundo_ November 8, 2010 at 5:19 pm

Babs in particular is an interesting and particularly pathological part of Dubya's development. I cannot imagine growing up in an environment like this and not growing up into a textbook case of sociopathy. If he had never ascended to the presidency and had written a book about his childhood as the son of a famous political family, it would cast him in a pretty sympathetic light. God knows how many lives and how much treasure later, it is difficult to do so. I wonder if this is why old money is as pathologically inclined as it seems sometimes.

Well, at least she didn't have it bronzed.

But seriously, Sweet Holy Jesus, please let this just be some sort of false "recovered" memory from a deranged mind. Please let this just be Dubya's projected memory metaphor for his own extended alcoholic stupor.

Barbara the younger also seems fairly normal compared to the rest of that clan. Of course, she doesn't look much like the rest of that family, and if I was a woman married to W I'd have been looking for a little action on the side.

kublakant November 8, 2010 at 3:12 pm

Bar is of course the supreme matriarch of the Draconians. All true Draconians keep their unfertilized child eggs in jars. They can then implant them into any convenient vessel for birthing. The one that Geroge W. saw was later implanted and became Barack Hussein Obama.

DoktorZoom November 8, 2010 at 3:19 pm

The Draconians…now, are they the ones that are going to set off the EMP Dirty Bomb today, or the ones who are going to stop it only if Obama turns himself in at the FEMA Camps?

This did not happen, this simply did not happen, the man is apparently crazy as shit, delusional, as well as being dumber than a box of hammers. This did not happen. A woman does not get to take home the fetus, thats just not done, except for maybe the fucking Santorums, but I am sure that they had a crazy fetus-fetishist doctor who let them, back in the 50s, 60s, doctors were even less likely to let something like this happen. He's crazy, this is a false memory, he imagined this, remembered the imagined image, and confused it with a real memory.

I actually seem to remember seeing fetuses in jars in some weird little small town "museum" down in Georgia in the 1960's. Of course, that was before Georgia gave them the right to vote.

BaldarTFlagass November 8, 2010 at 3:34 pm

There was a whole room full of fetii in jars at the Loma Linda Medical School back in the 70s when my high school physiology class took a field trip there. They had the really odd ones (hydrocephalic, anencephalic etc) hidden but they showed them to us. One of the reasons I decided to blow off a career in medicine. But Seventh Day Adventists, you know…

GunTotingProgressive November 8, 2010 at 4:21 pm

They're called "Pickled Punks," and were all the rage in Depression-era carnival freak shows. They also figured prominently in medical education. Given the Bush family legacy, I'm thinking it was the freak show avenue.

x111e7thst November 8, 2010 at 3:41 pm

Maybe it happened in Istanbul? My cousin had an appendectomy there sometime in the late '60's and they gave her the appendix (in a jar) to take home.

StillGoinGreen November 8, 2010 at 3:59 pm

a_pink_poodle November 8, 2010 at 7:23 pm

There are photo services that will dress up your still born baby or miscarried baby and put cheesy clip art around the frame. The mothers will even dress the dead babies in baby clothes for a couple of weeks before things start going off.

Don't tell me people aren't that crazy! I'VE SEEN IT!

Rotundo_ November 8, 2010 at 8:18 pm

That would be grief speaking, which can be close to and include insanity. There is a gulf, nay, a fucking ocean of difference between photo memories (even if they seem twisted to the non-grieving) and keeping your very own private specimen in a jar full of preservative. That is well and truly fucked up. Sharing this with your teenage son is beyond fucked up. Sharing this in an interview and an autobiography is in geosynchronous orbit above fucked up.

Pragmatist2 November 8, 2010 at 7:50 pm

Barbara is batshit crazy, but I have a hard time believing she's this batshit crazy. Dubyah's been at the inhalants again. Classy.

Jukesgrrl November 8, 2010 at 6:15 pm

Sorry, but she is. Her treatment of her other children when her daughter died of leukemia isn't that much better. The lack of empathy that she exhibited during Katrina — and felt no shame for and used as a way for her son Neil to make a profit from — was just this decade's version.

mumbly_joe November 8, 2010 at 3:21 pm

Okay, so here's the thing: I understand people doing all sorts of weird things with their miscarried fetuses: miscarriages are traumatic and upsetting and many people do go through a sort of mourning for them- some going so far as to hold a funeral and burial. I won't insult or belittle these heartfelt emotional responses, even including fetus-jars.

On the other hand, that's also sorta the exact reason why I'm pro choice- it would be just as dickish for me to moralize about women's abortions and miscarriages and force them to undergo more guilt and shame over what is already a traumatic -although frequently unavoidable- circumstance.

So, fuck you, Dubya.

Oh yeah…what you smart asses don't know is that Fetus Jar Bush was the family member slated to become president. The only reason GWB ran and not FJB is that Karl Rove was afraid about how a fetus would poll with moderates.

user-of-owls November 8, 2010 at 4:51 pm

Perhaps, but a lot would depend on what election year we're talking about. Rove might have had a point in the Year of the Soccer Mom, but it'd be a different story in the Year of the Angry Grey Fetus.

DoktorZoom November 8, 2010 at 4:55 pm

The real problem was that Fetal Attraction Bush didn't automatically agree with Cheney. The team needed someone more pliable.

I hate to defend Barbara, but having a major miscarriage like that is traumatic, bloody, excrutiatingly painful, and scary as hell. I don't know that I would make better decisions in the same circumstance.

walterhwhite November 8, 2010 at 6:57 pm

"I don't know that I would make better decisions in the same circumstance."
Seriously? You couldn't make a better decision than putting your aborted fetus in a jar and taking it home? I think you has a stoopids.

JesusButter November 8, 2010 at 7:17 pm

She wasn't taking it home, she was taking it TO the hospital. She miscarried at home. It was the mid-1960s for crying out loud and she was IN THE MIDDLE OF A MISCARRIAGE. Not a little zygote miscarriage, a half-grown fetus miscarriage, so yeah, I don't think what she did was "stoopid".

Katydid November 8, 2010 at 7:10 pm

What's a minor miscarriage?

I've known several women who had miscarriages. Not one of them put the fetus in a jar and showed it to their child. That's some sick shit.

JesusButter November 8, 2010 at 7:26 pm

Georgie had to drive his mother to the hospital while she was miscarrying. She didn't bring it home and go "look what I got, Georgie!" She had to bring it with her and he was driving–what was she supposed to do, hide the jar up her skirt?

But the really important thing is this:

The plural of fetus (a fourth declension Latin noun) is not feti, but fetus (with a long u, rather than the short u of the singular). The accepted English plural is fetuses.

LARAINE: …By the way, are you planning to eat the placenta?

GILDA: You're kidding! You mean the afterbirth?

LARAINE: That's right. Many mammals eat their own placenta. It's nutritious, it's 100 percent natural, and now that you're going to have a family, you've got to watch your food budget more than ever. And there's no cheaper meat than placenta.

GILDA: But is there enough placenta to make a complete meal for my husband and myself?

LARAINE: Not if your husband has a hearty appetite like mine. And that's why you need Placenta Helper.

bitchincamaro2 November 8, 2010 at 6:43 pm

At the end of W when the ball doesn't come down, maybe they could change it to having the fetus jar come down and he catches it.

You have to know that pickled fetus was the absolute best thing to ever have issued from Bar's fetid womb.

No surprise Dubya turned out to be an alcoholic sadist with Oedipus Issues.

Listen I feel it's necessry to point out, Barb had the miscarriage at home and Jr was driving her to the hospital with the remains in the jar.

Now, I don't know what's the "standard" in this situation, and I'm sure it's always terrible, but I would really think showing the remains to your son is just not the way to go. I'm sorry for anyone who's been through this (close friends and family of my own included), but these bushes are such awful, callous people, minimizing the needs of others while they play up any personal tragedy of their own, that it's easy to think of them as less worthy of sympathy. So, here goes….

The most shocking thing is that there are elements of the Republican party who see that fetus as a viable candidate for office because it has the name Bush attached to it.

Chet Kincaid November 9, 2010 at 9:35 am

I think it's time to update Pat Conroy's World's Shortest Southern Gothic Novel: "On the night the hogs ate Willie, Mama showed me the fetus she kept in a jar after she heard what Daddy did to Sister."

With the addition of the Jar Baby, the Presidential Library is being rebranded as the George W. Bush White House of Horror, open only in late October.

And great work, Wonketeers! Seems I missed the party, because of actual day-job work and a flight delay in France. I'm looking at you, Mademoiselle Special Ops.

carlgt1 November 9, 2010 at 9:37 am

actually the fact that there are so many miscarriages and zygotes flushed out of the system is proof to me that abortion isn't that bad, since Holy Babblin' Jesus seems to get rid of so many "potential babies" on His own anyway?

This is not the Wonkette I knew and loved.
