I’ve not jumped aboard the inane conversation about Seamus on a car roof, except to long ago write that it had shamefully occurred. But the barking has reached epic levels.
Dogs would call their lawyers if they could, defamation the charge.
The 2012 presidential election season is shaping up to be the un-serious, distracted and preoccupied spectacle America deserves. No wonder people don’t vote, don’t tune in and can be easily manipulated by lies.
I love Jon Stewart, but now everyone is competing to be him.
The Daily Caller has now answered the Seamus dog charges from Democrats, which they think are so clever. It’s much to the relief of all hang dog Republicans, numbering in the thousands now that Romney is the nominee.
“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.”
Yep, that’s Barack Obama, writing about his childhood with his stepfather Lolo Soetoro in Indonesia, from Chapter Two of his bestseller Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.
Who could have predicted needing to eat dog meat would be a punchline?
Jake Tapper took the bait in Romney Campaign Notes that Obama as a Boy Ate Dog Meat.
Democrats have signaled they have every intention of making sure the American people — especially dog-lovers — know the tale. In January, senior Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod tweeted a photo of the president and Bo in a car, with the snide observation: “@davidaxelrod: How loving owners transport their dogs.”
The Romney campaign signaled Tuesday night that they are not about to cede any ground when it comes to a candidate’s odd past with man’s best friend.
Dogs Against Romney has been around since the Seamus on the car roof story broke.
Today, James Taranto couldn’t help himself any longer.
Obama vs. Romney is shaping up to be exactly what I said it would be: a theatrical farce. A mirror on the American political establishment, which is as bankrupt and incapable of focusing on what matters to We the People, but also exactly what voters have earned, because they’re too busy texting their choice for winner on “American Idol” to give a flying fig who’s running our country into the ground.
It’s not big government, because nobody’s doing anything on either side, but crafting their next tweet or political parody.
Democrats and Republicans, making more Independents every day, but we still don’t have anyone worth voting for, only someone to vote against.
