Dogs Against Romney
Well, look what just arrived in the inboxes of people on the DSCC's fundraising email list:

Subject: Car roof

I never thought I’d say this, but I agree with Newt Gingrich. Mitt Romney would be a terrible president.
Mitt Romney. Who likes “being able to fire people.” Who said “corporations are people.” Who laid off thousands and shipped jobs overseas. Who forced the family dog to ride on the car roof for a 12-hour drive!
In case you have no idea what he's talking about, I direct you to the sad tale of Seamus, the Romney family dog who was strapped to the roof of the Romney's station wagon for 12-hour drive up to Canada. Yes, you read that right: Mitt Romney placed the family dog in a car carrier and strapped him onto the roof of his car. For twelve hours. On the highway. You'll forgive the dog for having dirtied the windows of the car with a bout of diarrhea. Wouldn't you be scared shitless if you were put all alone into a box strapped atop a car going 60 or 70 miles per hour?
Now that Democrats have made brought this up in the campaign, I'm curious to see how the Republican establishment will defend Romney's decision. Maybe they'll accuse Democrats of being Communists for raising questions about Romney's treatment of his dog. Or perhaps they'll fall back on Freedom with a capital "F" and defend the Tenth Amendment right to carry your dog wherever you damn well please. But one thing I'm sure of: They won't defend Romney's judgment. Because on this, there really is no defense.
