16. Regarding the Obamas' new pooch.
I like the idea of their getting a dog. I like dogs.

I feel badly for Barney, the Bush's dog. He likely tried his best to be a good dog but the stress of living with fools in that godawful ugly house was just too much and in the last year or so, he's pretty much gone to pieces. There've been at least 2 incidents in which Barney reportedly snapped at / tried to bite a reporter.

Maybe it was a political statement about the media.

But more likely Barney's losing it. Dubya didn't offer much support for Gulf Coast residents and the suggestion is strong that he ignores his pets as well.

Barney's memoirs would be compelling. I'd buy a first edition, no questions asked.

I predict the Obamas will do better by their pooch.

I want them to go a step or two further and build an animal shelter on the acreage of the White House, hire homeless humans to run it, with housing provided for said humans as well. Rahm can work out the details.

The Republicans will have a cow over it, of course, but it's a good idea, relatively low overhead, imminently affordable, and symbollicaly potent.
