My mom says, “If you marry money, you pay for it.” I totally fucking get it, Mom!
Former President George W. Fuckup is whoring his new coloring book, The Upside of Failing Like It Ain’t Thang. So, he’s been dropping chum all week with NBC’s Matt Lauer hoping you’ll be enticed enough to take the bait and help him make respectable sales.
Okay. He’s doing it because Laura said he had to.
Having no real friends to protect him from coming off as a super eccentric weirdo, he tells this story:
When Barbara Bush miscarried at home, she had young George drive her to the hospital. In her lap, Barbara Bush held a jar containing the remains of the fetus,” George Bush said.
“She says to her teenage kid, ‘Here’s a fetus.’ No question it — that affected me — my philosophy that we should respect life.”
Recalling what he saw in the jar, Bush wrote, “There was a human life, a little brother or sister.” –The Washington Post
Bush said he included this vignette not to explain how he became anti-freedom of choice but to show his relationship with his mother.
Subtext: She made me a fuckup.
I’m inclined to agree she helped though he had unparalleled opportunities for therapy.
