The presumptive GOP candidate for president, Mitt Romney, was hit during the campaign by his Republican opponents for driving on a cross-country trip with his dog in a cage on the roof. A once funny family story turned into a tale of sadistic treatment of animals.
Again, the Republicans and Romney brought this up first. Not the Democrats.
So now that the Mittster has the nomination in hand, how, dear voters, is the GOP going to get around Car-dog-gate?
“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”
Look, everyone! They said. Obama eats dog!
Really? That’s their next line of attack? Obama’s stepfather in Indonesia fed him dog when he was 10 years old. A kid eating dog is the equivalent of an adult crating a crapping dog on the top of a car?
And our ever illustrious media falling over themselves with the “See, both sides do it” round of nonstop coverage. We really must be the dumbest people on the planet.
The Christian Science Monitor best sums up the issue.
Many of the people who are outraged about “Obama eats dog” are the same people who will pooh-pooh vegetarians as Leftist softies.
