Why Bo Sleeps With One Eye Open

Yesterday, Jim Treacher at The Daily Caller, the web site founded by Tucker Carlson, who has gone from wanting to be George Will (see old clips with bow tie and preppy glasses) to wanting to be Andrew Breitbart (see red meat on said web site), posted a story saying that we can’t be outraged about Mitt’s putting his Irish Setter Seamus on the roof of his station wagon for a 12-hour trip because President Obama admitted in his book Dreams From My Father that he actually ate dog while he was a child living in Indonesia.

And so that inevitably led to #ObamaDogRecipes, and Politico‘s pick of the top 11 tweets:

What Happened to Seamus?

The New York Observer is reporting that two of Mitt Romney’s sons told reporters “off the record” that when the Romney family arrived in Canada after strapping Seamus the Irish setter to the roof of their station wagon for the twelve-hour trip, Seamus ran away.

The Romneys have said that Seamus eventually went to live with Mitt’s sister Jane in California and that he lived to a ripe old age.  There is a photo of Seamus with a litter of kittens that was supposedly taken at Jane’s house.

It may well be that Seamus ran away when he arrived in Canada as the sons said, but was found and reunited with the Romneys, so that he eventually went to California, as Mitt has said.

But if that’s the case, why hasn’t the Romney campaign responded to the Observer‘s requests for clarification?  Observing minds want to know.
