The incident: dog excrement found on the roof and windows of the Romney station wagon. How it got there: Romney strapped a dog carrier — with the family dog Seamus, an Irish Setter, in it — to the roof of the family station wagon for a twelve hour drive from Boston to Ontario, which the family apparently completed, despite Seamus's rather visceral protest.Of course, not mentioned in the story is that the whole reason the family was driving to Ontario was to have Mitt Romney's dog fight one of Michael Vick's dogs.
Where are the voices of public sociology here? Where are the animals & society folks? I want to see the "Deconstructing Playing with Katie" guy deconstructing traveling with Seamus.
People have asked me if I'm going to get a pet when I go to Northwestern. No. Well, maybe a turtle. If I do, I'm not strapping it to the top of my car, even if I would like to be President, or having it fight one of Michael Vick's dogs. Maybe just a plant.
