If That's How He'd Treat a Dog...

mitt_romney_george_bush.jpg...I wonder how President Mitt (brrr!) would treat ordinary Americans?

Swampland commentary:

I can't be the only one who finds, in this anecdote, something else entirely besides, "emotion-free crisis management":

Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family's hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and attached it to the station wagon's roof rack. He'd built a windshield for the carrier, to make the ride more comfortable for the dog.

As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. ''Dad!'' he yelled. ''Gross!'' A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who'd been riding on the roof in the wind for hours.

The more we find out about this guy, the creepier he gets.

Competent enough to secure the dog carrier adequately, thoughtful enough to provide a windshield, alert enough to spot changing circumstances, and flexible enough to change tactics when needed; but probably not a dog person.


And I wrote in Scooby-Doo in '00 and '04. Maybe he can change out litterboxes as Thompson's Veep, and, of course, run the world like Cheney.

Paul Hamilton:

Kim, having a pet is a great responsibility. To say that this is the act of someone who "isn't a dog person" understates the gravity of the act to the point of meaninglessness. The dog was alone and terrified in a situation totally beyond his understanding and could not escape his terror. If the family was not willing to let the dog ride in the car with the family -- and I would remind you that when you have a dog YOU become that animal's family -- then he should have had the animal boarded. This was barbarous.

Lee Ward:

Mitt obviously isn't the brightest bulb on the tree, now is he?


You think you have an argument from me?

Well you do if you think you never hurt an animal inadvertently, and you do if you think that doing so makes you a barbarous person. Silly asses.

Make note of Lee's not mentioning the dog in his comments. He uses this opportunity to insult the intelligence of Romney. To hell with the dog.

Lee never misses an opportunity to call someone stupid or accuse another of being a liar.


He's arguing that 'waifs' are attractive on the Ann-Thrax thread.

So therin lies the Diarrhea indictment.


Cascarastalsis. I'm beginning to feel sick. Waifs, woofs, forsooths.
