You know it's an election year when the Washington Post starts to look lke The Onion

Mitt Romney - Dog Abuser


BOSTON -- An example of Mitt Romney's crisis management skills has turned into something of a political problem for the Republican presidential contender.

Romney placed his family dog, an Irish setter named Seamus, into a kennel lashed to the top of his station wagon for a 12-hour family trip from Boston to Ontario in 1983. Despite being shielded by a wind screen the former Massachusetts governor erected, Seamus expressed his discomfort with a diarrhea attack.

So, do you think the dog expressed his opinion whilst flying down the interstate?

That's why you should have stayed in the race.

And the surprising thing is that it isn't even an election year.

@Chuck - According to the story, the dog did have a comment.

@Carl - I got out when the getting was good.

@Jonathan - Excellent point.
