June 29,2007 | BOSTON -- An example of Mitt Romney's crisis management skills has turned into something of a political problem for the Republican presidential contender.

Romney placed his family dog, an Irish setter named Seamus, into a kennel lashed to the top of his station wagon for a 12-hour family trip from Boston to Ontario in 1983. Despite being shielded by a wind screen the former Massachusetts governor erected, Seamus expressed his discomfort with a diarrhea attack...


He's cruel to dogs.

Or he's not cruel to dogs, but he's a failure as a builder of wind screens.

Personally, I find him creepy, looking like a character Charles Addams might have considered and then deleted (not funny enough) from his Addams Family cartoons, but this is so lame, it ALMOST makes me sympathetic to him.

I said ALMOST -- and then I remember his platform of "Kill, kill kill -- bigger army, more attacks..." and I figure "Fuck him, he's a sociopath and is cruel to dogs."
