Courting the Canine Vote: One Straps Them to the Roof, the Other Eats Them

Democrats are really trying to make an issue out of the Romney family dog this campaign.  So, Jim Treacher of the Daily Caller responds rather humorously…

Hey, if we’re going to talk about how presidential candidates treated dogs decades ago, let’s talk about how presidential candidates treated dogs decades ago.
Can you name the author of this quote?
“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.
“So what? It was a long time ago,” you say. “He was a lot younger. Customs are different there. He was just doing what his stepfather told him. And hey, you can’t even prove that the dogs were ever left on top of a car, you racist.”
Hey, whatever you have to tell yourself, libs. Say what you want about Romney, but at least he only put a dog on the roof of his car, not the roof of his mouth. And whenever you bring up the one, we’re going to bring up the other.
It’s no fun when we push back, is it? That’s why it’s so much fun.

It’s amazing to watch the President and his people try to manufacture issues because he has nothing to run on.  There is no singular example of success that the President can run on.

Barack Obama – All bark, no bite.

Weekend Recession: Watch a Dog Being Vacuumed

April 14, 2012 at 3:29 pm (Dog, Hoover, Pet, Suck, Vacuum, Weekend Recession, Welsh Corgi)

Have a great weekend y’all…

Pet owners in search of a way to keep their rugs clean might take a lesson from the owner of Corbin Dallas Multipass, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, who is starring in a video that’s fast gone viral. Of course, not all dogs are as absurdly obedient as Corbin, who submits to being vacummed by his flip-flop-wearing owner and doesn’t even flinch when the suctioning attachment nears his puppy private parts or his ears or his cute pink tongue. And, when his underside has been groomed clean, Corbin willingly flips over to allow the fur on his topside to be Hoovered as well. Guess being vacuumed doesn’t suck as much as you might think.

Wounded Combat Dog Reunited With His Marine

March 20, 2012 at 1:00 pm (Charles Schumer, Chuck Schumer, Combat Dog, Dog, German Shepherd, Megan Leavey, Purple Heart, Rex)

Feel good story of the day…  And a great job by Chuck Schumer.  (I never thought I’d say that, and I feel kind of dirty now…)

From the AP, via the Troy Record:

A combat dog will finally be reunited in retirement with the ex-Marine handler with whom it was wounded in Iraq.

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer told The Associated Press on Monday night that the Air Force has agreed to release Sgt. Rex into the care of former Cpl. Megan Leavey, of Rockland County, just north of New York City.

Leavey was injured with Rex in 2006 while trying to disarm an explosive. They convalesced together.

Rex is credited with saving lives and uncovering explosives that saved more.

Schumer had intervened when Leavey, a Purple Heart recipient, was first denied in her effort to adopt Rex in 2007. Rex was returned to service after he and Leavey had recovered from their injuries.

Now Rex, a black and brown German Shepherd, is 10 years and can’t continue his military service, but Schumer said bureaucracy still stood in the way of the adoption.

“We salute the Air Force and the Marines for doing the right thing and allowing Rex to be with Corporal Leavey,” Schumer said Monday night. “One canine, one human, both heroes. They should be united shortly, and we’re glad it’s happening.”

What makes this particularly emotional is that Rex has been diagnosed with a form of nerve paralysis, and Leavey was trying to adopt him before he was put down.

Great work Mr. Schumer, and thanks for your service Megan and Rex!

Video – For Those Who’ve Always Wanted to See Mitt Romney Rap

March 20, 2012 at 10:36 am (2012 Election, Conservative, Dog, Eminem, GOP, Mitt Romney, Mormon, Newt Gingrich, Please Stand Up, President Obama, Republican, Rick Santorum, Roof)

And we know there are many of you clamoring for such video…

While we’re aware that this was produced by an Obama supporter (h/t Ben), we simply had no choice but to share the video with you.  Any time you can produce something that involves Mitt Romney singing Eminem’s Please Stand Up, then you’ve done something rather epic.  This is, hands down, the single best video of the campaign season.

And now, without further ado, will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?  Via The Margins of Error

My dog is on the roof.  My dog is on the roof.
