Don’t fuss he just loves it…
Everyone is making a fuss about dogs today! First, Obama eats dogs as a child thereby proving, as if you didn’t already know, that he is truly a foul foreigner and by implication therefore not fit to be President. I mean can we ever see him eating hot dogs at a ball game again without that thought drifting into one’s mind? Then Romney fesses up to sticking the family dog in an open crate on the car roof years ago before heading off cross country for a holiday. It’s like something out of “The Grimswolds Family Vacation“. Except funnier. Apparently the mutt ran away; as if you could blame it?
Whatever happened to journalism?
Still, if you can’t beat them join them. Who is still old enough to remember when President Johnston held a press conference on the White House lawn in 1963 and picked up his beagle by the ears?
The picture above was round the world in moments, to a chorus of opprobrium. Pure undiluted pleasure.
