Downer Syndrome

Downer syndrome.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 queschuns? Go bah mah book!") when his now-famous anecdote about the "fetus in a jar" came out of left field like a rhino driving a dump truck, leaving me even more disgusted by this ghastly 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 from this man-child's addled mind. I've actually heard callers to radio programs comment unchalleneged that this is all perfectly natural, that it happens all the time, that sharing such a moment with your children is not unusual.

Uh-huh. Right.

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? How long before Glenn Beck begins hawking 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.
