Another fun moment from Larry King's interview of George and Barbara Bush last night: Turns out it wasn't actually Barbara who put that fetus in a jar and showed it to her son. "Paula put it in the jar," she told King, referring to the family's housekeeper, and adding that she was "shocked" when the housekeeper gave it to George W. Bush. Little George, of course, went on to write about the moment in his memoir, Talking Points Memo reports. Why the mix up? "Memories dim a little bit," Barbara said.
