PETA: Agin' Mitt Romney

The folks at PETA have their panties in a twist 'cause of something Mitt Romney did almost 25 years ago:

"This is a distinction Mitt Romney probably could do without, but he is surely the first presidential candidate to be attacked for putting a dog with diarrhea in a carrier and tying it to the top of a station wagon.

"The episode occurred in 1983 on a 12-hour family trip from Boston to Ontario. ...

"The dog, an Irish setter named Seamus, apparently was a tad under the weather and registered his discomfort atop the family car in a fashion that necessitated a quick stop at a gas station to hose down the car.

"The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals was incensed. 'If you wouldn't strap your child to the roof of your car, you have no business doing that to the family dog,' PETA president Ingrid Newkirk said."

PETA-people should be glad that Mitt Romney simply chose to strap his loose-boweled dog to the roof of his car. I know many a soul who would've dumped Pooch by the side of the road ... and they would not have subjected themselves to a guilt-trip (no pun intended) after doing so.
