  • Quote Unquote: On Dogs

    Scott Crider — founder of Dogs Against Romney — on the recent "revelation" that Barack Obama had written in his autobiography that he was fed dog meat as a young boy while living in Indonesia

    "If President Obama had made the conscious decision to eat dog meat as a 36-year old adult, in America, claimed the dog liked being eaten, and still claimed he didn't think there was anything wrong with it, the Romney campaign would have a point…"

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that Mitt Romney is not super excited about the prospect of this meme blowing up in the media.

  • One Mitt Romney Fundraiser's Barbecued Dog Scandal

    Forget woman troubles. Mitt Romney's dog troubles are just beginning. After the infamous "Crate-Gate," in which Romney put his family's Irish Setter in a crate and strapped it to the roof of the car for a 12-hour drive, one industrious dog-lover started an organization (and/or joke website) called Dogs Against Romney.

    And it looks like they've uncovered a new bombshell

    On Monday, Romney will be the beneficiary of a fundraiser that is being hosted for him by Fred Malek. Who is Malek? He is the former President of Marriott Hotels and Northwest Airlines; former assistant to U.S. Presidents Richard Nixon and H.W. Bush; and former National Finance Committee Co-Chair for John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.

    Fred Malek is also part of a group of men who were arrested after killing and barbecuing a dog in a city park in Peoria, IL.

    Go on

    In 1959, Malek and four other men in their 20s were arrested at 2 a.m. in a Peoria park when police found them covered in blood. Police found a skinned animal on a spit. Malek said he had nothing to do with the dog killing.

    I think we all assumed if there was going to be a scandal involving the ritual killing and eating of a dog, it would involve a Ron Paul supporter. But to be fair, who among us hasn't been implicated in a grisly dog-roasting incident? Newt Gingrich looks like he eats at least five dogs a day.

    Strangely, this isn't even the most famously terrible thing Fred Malek has done. While working for President Nixon, he counted the number of Jewish employees in the Bureau of Labor Statistics so that Nixon could demote them. What a mensch!

  • Evidence of "Man on Dog" Action in Illinois

    And in my own back yard on the north side of Chicago no less!

    This might be just the scandal Rick Santorum was counting on to fire up his base. But is it coming out too late?

  • Albuquerque Dog Registers to Vote

    They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but that was before we started genetically engineering plants and animals to our specifications. Some day in humanity's future, when politics finally begins to bore us, we'll need to breed an intelligent, loving animal to take over our civic duties.

    Enter Buddy the dog

    An Albuquerque man says he successfully registered his dog to vote in Bernalillo County.

    The dog owner said he saw a voter registration booth on the University of New Mexico's campus a few weeks ago and decided to see how easy it would be to register his dog to vote.

    He said he was trying to expose the problems with the registration system. He said he just received the dog's voter registration card in the mail Wednesday, and it was way too easy.

    Buddy's owner, who remains unnamed, was alarmed that it had been so easy to commit voter fraud. State officials retaliated by saying they are under no law to confirm every application they receive, which immediately restored everyone's belief in the integrity of bureaucrats.

    Although Buddy's owner has no intention of voting with his dog's registration card, Buddy has made no such promises. If it was this easy for one dog to register, many more may try. Be afraid, Mitt Romney. Be very afraid.

  • Bo Obama Grafted into Hideous Rabbit/Chicken Hybrid for Easter

    Mitt Romney may have strapped his dog to the roof of his car, but he never did this to his dog…

    You might think this is cute or harmless, but it's morally reprehensible. The White House genetically modified an innocent dog to have rabbit ears and to lay chicken eggs just to parade their scientific monstrosity in celebration of Easter!

    This is what stem cell research leads to, America. This, and cures for cancer.
