Our oh, so prissy oldline media, having done their best to gin up faux outrage over the Romneys securing their dog in a carrier on their car during a family vacation years ago, now are being forced to deal with the revelation (from Barack Obama himself) that the future president ate dog while a child in Indonesia. Both dog stories, of course, have less than nothing to do with which man would be the better president over the next four years.
But they do shine an instructive light on the shenanigans the media will stoop to in order to influence an election that should be over much more serious issues. Even better, from my perspective, they open our pompous president up to something he has faced very little of since coming onto the national scene–political ridicule, which is the last thing the media wanted. Remember, folks, politics is dog eat dog.
