There is no way in HELL that dog loved being in a carrier on top of the family car!


Hi y’all!

I’m busy working on an article that is giving me fits, but I read this headline - Dog Seamus 'Loved' Trips Atop Family Car, Says Ann Romney – and I just had to respond.

The Romney camp has been deflecting attacks on how out-of-touch he is with the lives of regular hard working Americans. I’ve read about Mitt’s tax rate, his wife’s love of dressage (think rich people bullshit and add expensive as hell to it), and how he’s friends with folks who own professional sports teams.

Don’t get me wrong – I think it is important to question whether those who draft social policy have an intimate knowledge of how that policy impacts the lives of the 99%. Hell, if I had my way candidates would have to answer questions about whether they have ever had debt or had to float a bill to eat or feed a child.

I get how highlighting Mitt’s life of wealth, milk, and honey demonstrates why he’s going to have to study regular folk before he could even begin to consider how to represent our wishes in office…

…but it seems to me that the best example of how out-of-touch the Romney’s are is that they put their family dog on top of their car and took off for a road trip and Ann Romney thinks the dog LOVED that shit.

I feel the need to speak up for Seamus the dog here - there is no way in HELL that dog loved being in a carrier on top of the family car!

Shit, they have tons of children...why didn't they put the dawg on a lap or two in the backseat?

If Seamus were around to tell his side of the story he’d likely dispute the notion that he got the shits that day from eating turkey off the counter. 

Dawgs don't shit themselves out of joy...that poor dawg got the shits from sheer terror!

Heaven to hell and back again, this freakish attempt to spin putting a family pet on top of a car and freaking it out until the poor dear shat itself as giving the dawg the ride of his life has GOT to be the most solid evidence that Team Romney is bent and unfit to lead that I’ve heard yet!

Trust me, if the Romney’s think Seamus “loved” shitting himself in terror on top of the family car how the hell will they interpret our responses to policy?

Pause…consider…continue.

We’ll be shitting ourselves for years while Ann Romney giggles, flippantly waves at us from atop one of her horses, and then tells her dressage buddies how much we LOVE shitting ourselves!

Blink.

Shorter Ann Romney: "Let them eat cake!"

And we know how that worked out, don't we?

i don't know anything about what dogs do and don't like. at all.

but what i do know is that dog evidence aside, you make a fabulous point here. i'll be using it in the future.

As horrible as it is I thought it even worse to hose the dog down and then stick him back up there. The dog was suffering from a mistake the people made. Why the eff would you compound the mistake and the suffering? I swear the guy is a sociopath.

Great observation about dogs not shitting themselves when they are excited. Watching the buffoonery of this year's election makes me excited I moved out of the country last year.

BETTER TO TAKE A RIDE WITH MITT THAN BE EATEN BY BARRACK

Aw that was cute, Anonymous!

Just one "r" in Barack, though. If you're gonna diss the man get his name right, son...

Not "dissin" anyone sunshine, just making a comment. Trying to get a handle on folks who can comment about where dogs like to ride without the ability to communicate, unless you have an ability that we dont know about. If you ask my dogs they will tell you that ridding in the back of the truck is the best thing since sliced bread.

There's a world of difference between shitting a crate on top of a car and a nice joyride in the bed of a truck.

Unless your dogs express their joy by evacuating their bowels during the ride...in which case we're gonna have to agree to disagree.
