Campaign Blog Of The Week: Dogs Against Romney

July 9, 2007

I must have been on vacation when this story broke: Romney’s dog story: Really, he loved riding on the car roof

Nearly 140 bloggers in the last two days have linked to a Time article on this nugget mined from a seven-part Boston Globe series on the former governor: In 1983, Romney’s dog made a 12-hour trip from Boston to Ontario in a kennel lashed to the top of the family station wagon

Animal lovers everywhere were aghast, and the story even inspired the creation of a new blog:

Dogs Against Romney

Indy offers his enthusiastic support!


Update: As Romney supporter practicalreasoning pointed out in the comments, Mitt might discover that he has a sudden surge of support from the cat community over this news. I laughed. But then I saw this:



  1. Yep, you must have missed that one! Animal abuse doesn’t set well with me! I love animals and that was cruel what Romney did…

  2. On the plus side, recent polls show Romney with a record-high approval rating from the cat community.

  3. LOL!

  4. Everyone knows cats are all liberal anyway… I may have to do something on that article…

  5. I dunno. Garfield just jumped into the Romney camp!

  6. Evil Cat has no love for dogs but I doubt she will jump on the Romney bandwagon. If Mitt does that to a dog where would he put a cat?




  7. Update: I just checked, and this site appears to be defunct. I suppose one can only take it so far…
