Mitt Romney could become the first Presidential candidate to be defeated by DOGS

Last edited Thu Feb 2, 2012, 08:33 PM - Edit history (1)

Dogs Against Romney has reached over 20k fans (edited to add: on facebook), it's been fascinating to watch the steep climb in popularity in the past few days!

The tale of poor Seamus won't go away. Check out this article in the Winnipeg Free Press:
http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/entertainment/music/seamus-romney-knaan-cause-canadian-flavoured-headaches-to-romney-138592124.html

But it's the tale of poor Seamus, the Irish setter who infamously spent 12 hours in the 1980s strapped to the roof of the Romney family station wagon on a road trip from Massachusetts to Grand Bend, Ont., that truly will not die.

A new report suggests Seamus, who soiled himself during his stint in the rooftop crate, ran for the hills when the Romneys finally arrived at the family's Lake Huron cottage. Some wags have suggested it was an attempt to seek asylum in Canada and avoid the hellish return trip back to Boston.

Politicker, the political blog for the New York Observer newspaper, reports that two of Romney's sons have told reporters off the record that the dog ran away when they reached their destination in the summer of 1983.

It was unclear if he ever returned, and there has been no response from the Romney campaign to repeated requests for comment on the story. Jane Romney, Mitt Romney's sister, has long insisted Seamus ended up living to a "ripe old age" on her farm in California, where he once served as a loving caregiver to a litter of kittens.

And Rusty posted a news story on his blog yesterday, that led to another one at Politicker,
"Did Mitt Romney’s Dog Seek Asylum In Canada??
