It is wise to direct your anger towards problems — not small dogs; to focus your energies on answers — not excuses.

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has been accused of mistreating his family dog. The Associated Press reports that back in 1983 Romney placed his Irish Setter, Seamus, in a carrier on the roof of the family car during a 12-hour trip from Boston to Ontario. Apparently, Seamus “expressed his discomfort with a diarrhea attack.” Romney’s sons complained about the brown liquid running down the back windshield and then, as if in wartime, Romney took firm and decisive action. He “quietly pulled the car over, borrowed a gas station hose and sprayed down both the dog and the kennel before returning to the road.” Such grace under pressure. That’s just the kind of man we need running out country. Wouldn’t you say? Romney dismissed the accusations that this rooftop throne was cruel and unusual. He said, “he scrambled up there every time we went on trips…He got it all by himself and enjoyed it.” Sure he did Mitt. Sure he did.

One more fact indicating that dogs are becoming more and more like humans and likely to take over the world soon. Some Common Human Injuries Also Common In Dogs.

I’ll drink to that:

My heart explodes, My memory in a fire, And some small dog will listen, At least for a short while And in the naked light I saw, ten thousand small dogs, maybe more. People talking without speaking. People hearing without listening.

    Real classy, Mitt. I don’t even know your policies but now I sure as hell wouldn’t vote for you. What the hell was this guy thinking? I guess there’s a statute of limitations for this kind of thing, but I really think he needs to be punished for that kind of behavior.

    Thanks for your input Feliza. It’s really appalling that he would do this to his pet. It’s totally inexcusable. What would he do to the children of America? I shutter to think about it.
