You don't even realize that you're very clearly the retard here, do you CP? That's plenty of amusement all by itself. Your "points" are intellectually bankrupt, just like this whole "controversy." This has been a chuckle in MA since the last presidential cycle.


Maybe to jackasses like you, but I don't really care if you think I'm the retard here considering where its coming from.

Which of my points are intellectually bankrupt? I said the dog shiat itself in terror. I was told dogs shiat themselves for other reasons. I asserted that none of the reasons given made it OK and the dog shiatting itself was still a sign to take it down.

I don't really care what Rachel Maddow says. I'm not enraged as a rabid lefty. I'm enraged as a dog lover.

why? because I find your attempts to find reasons why the dog shat itself aside from "dogs sometimes takes shiats" to be amusing?


Dogs don't normally shiat themselves. Whether it was in terror, due to sickness, or simply because of Romney's neglect in failing to pull over and walk the poor thing, something went terribly wrong there. And Romney's reaction was to just hose down the car and do it again.

This is how Romney treats his pets.

What's more, no, this story does not have legs. It actually sounded like a pretty reasonable thing to do, I'd venture the dog did not fit in the car and the family wanted to bring it with. It wasn't a cold calculated crisis management, he hosed the dog off. It's not like he just kept driving. Lots of reasons to attack Romney, this isn't one.

He hosed the dog off then he put him back in the crate and kept driving. He was wrong and so are you.

never been a fan of dogs and don't know much about them. If we're not upset about him putting the dog in the crate in the first place, why are we upset about him putting the dog back in the crate after cleaning him off?

Well, his argument was that the dog loved to go up there. So when the dog shiats itself in terror shouldn't that be a clue that maybe he doesn't like it so much?

sometimes dogs shiat themselves because they have to shiat, no? Who says it "shiat itself in terror"? Dr Rachel?


Since you admittedly know little about dogs, I'll clue you in.
shiat from a terrified animal is going to be quite different in consistency than a dogs regular bowel movement. A scared, distressed dog is going to be vile and squirty. Anyone who has owned a dog is familiar with the toilet habits of their animals. So chances are, Romney was well aware of the dogs distressed state and simply didn't care. Also, dogs that are used to being kenneled, as he claims this one was, will not shiat or piss in their boxes unless its a dire emergency....

lennavan: Putting the dog up there in the first place may have been stupid. Hosing the dog off was actually a nice thing to do.


Except now the dog is wet, which means its going to be freezing.

I could almost buy Mitt's argument that the dog loved being in the carrier, and accept that the dog didn't shiat itself out of fear but rather because it had to go really bad. But even if I accept those possibilities, this story still makes Mitt look like a total ass:

First, he knew the trip would be twelve hours and apparently made no provision for bathroom breaks for the dog. That's ridiculous. I've taken my dog on long road trips where we spent twelve to twenty hours on the road each day. I scheduled regular stops (every three to four hours) to let the dog out to use the bathroom and spend twenty minutes playing fetch so she could stretch her legs. My dog has never crapped inside my car.

Second, once the dog had crapped itself Mitt should have been able to recognize the dog was in distress. But let's be generous and assume the dog wasn't actually in any serious discomfort and readily agree to get back in the crate. Romney still put a wet dog in a box on top of a car and then drove for several more hours (which means he's driving into the evening) in a Northern state and then in Canada, which means that even if it was summer it would still be fairly cold. The wind chill alone is going to be very high, since he is presumably driving between 55 and 75 mph.

These are facts that remain true even if we take Mitt completely at his word and assume the best possibilities. He's still a guy who would make no plans for his dog's bathroom business on a twelve hour drive, and he's still a guy who would put a wet dog on top of a car on a long drive into Canada.

/Also, unless the dog had some sort of general incontinence issue or wasn't allowed to defecate for many hours before being put in the crate, it should have been able to hold it for twelve hours. A dog the size on an Irish Setter should be able to hold it for about 24 hours if properly crate-trained. One shouldn't force a dog to hold it that long, but the dog should be able to handle it. For that reason, and the liquid nature of its defecation, I strongly suspect that Seamus shiat himself in terror.

lennavan: bugontherug: I did not. Though now that you raise the question, it could be because the story said he was emotion free.

Do you believe everything you read on the internet as established truth?

bugontherug: His lack of emotion in dealing with the situation is weirder still.

Was there a lack of emotion?

bugontherug: The story leads me

Funny, in reading the follow-up, that's exactly what the author wanted you to get out of the story. I wonder how that worked out.

bugontherug: Yes. The story is praising Romney highly. So the author's bias is in favor of Romney, not against him. It's only by reading between the lines that the story is a little weird.

This is just completely false. From the author himself - "Seeking to penetrate the stock image of the air-brushed family."

bugontherug: The author's pro-Romney bias, and Romney's lack of protest before now give rise to the inference that the story is credible.

Brutal. Just brutal. Not only are you wrong but you just absolutely know you're right, making it impossible to see how wrong you are. I can't help you man. You've already built a false narrative to help you support your ill conceived conclusions. I cannot argue against the things you've fabricated to support your beliefs.


U gettin' mad bro? U sound mad.

The article speaks glowingly of Romney, and a journalist who wanted to write a positive story could just as easily say his or her aim is to "penetrate the image of the air brushed family," because he or she wants to make the subject seem more human. The article which is the subject of this thread is pro-Romney in tone, trying to characterize him as an effective crisis-manager. You have to read between the lines to see that it suggests an underlying personality disturbance.


Do you believe everything you read on the internet as established truth?


No. You asked why I believed there was a "lack of emotion in the story." I answered the question you asked, not the one you imagine you asked.

Was there a lack of emotion?

The credible evidence says yes. In fact, the story was confirmed by the Romney family, and the version the journalist published is the Romney family's own positive spin.

"For the record, neither Tagg nor any other Romney was my original source for the anecdote. Collins and others have pushed this silly line to suggest how tone-deaf the Romney brood must be. In fact, I went to the then 37-year-old Tagg only after having heard the Seamus story at the very end of a long interview with a close friend of the Romney family. Seeking to penetrate the stock image of the air-brushed family, I had asked that friend what stories the Romneys reminisced about in the privacy of their own home. As soon as the Seamus road trip anecdote passed his lips, I knew it was a gem. But I was determined to avoid a situation where Romney's handlers could call into question the anecdote - or the entire article - because I had gotten some small detail wrong. So I insisted that Tagg poll his mother and brothers and persisted until I had confirmed every last fact. Far from being tone-deaf, Tagg realized as I dug deeper that the story could cause his father grief. Yet Tagg's participation actually helped his dad. After all, the first version of the story I'd heard from the family friend - who hadn't been an eyewitness - improbably had Mitt driving the station wagon right through a carwash. Imagine the howls from PETA if Seamus had been introduced to the world with the image of high-pressure wraparound brushes pummeling a defenseless, diarrheal dog."

It's good to see that your argument is so strong that you've decided to focus your attack on me. I am right, because all the objective evidence shows that this story was pro-Romney spin of an ugly event revealing more about the man's capacity for empathy than the family wanted revealed. That you are the kind of shady person who, when shown to be wrong, sinks to personal attacks in place of syllogisms does nothing to strengthen or undermine that case.

I did not. Though now that you raise the question, it could be because the story said he was emotion free.


I agree. Maybe even thought about putting the dog in the car until they realized the story says "was overstuffed with suitcases." So what would he do?


Tie the suitcases on the roof, and let the dog ride in the car. Take a long break. Pet the dog a little, and say in a silly voice "is my precious puppy sick?" Anything. There were options available to him. Putting the dog on the roof in the first place was just kind of weird. His lack of emotion in dealing with the situation is weirder still.


Such as cleaning the dog off? Or building a custom windshield?


The story leads me to believe he did those things not out of empathy, but out of utility.

Did you even bother questioning its reliability?

Yes. The story is praising Romney highly. So the author's bias is in favor of Romney, not against him. It's only by reading between the lines that the story is a little weird.


He heard it from a friend who wasn't there and the friend said Mitt went through a carwash to clean the dog.


I'm sorry, but the perception that a candidate doesn't love his pet dog is probably fatal to a presidential campaign. It is now being used against him by his own party in South Carolina, and with good reason. If the Romney campaign found fault with the story, it would have disputed it by now. It's been public at least five years:

1983. The story was written what, 24 years later? So at best, it's a story recounting how he acted 24 years ago. How accurate are the details?

He heard it from a friend who wasn't there and the friend said Mitt went through a carwash to clean the dog. That seems reliable? And look, he has a pre-drawn narrative:

it's always struck me as a valuable window into how Romney operates. In everything the guy does, he functions on logic, not emotion.

By the way, the things people used to do back in 1983 was a bit different than now. Context is relevant.


I guess it doesn't matter to you then that it was illegal for him to strap the dog up there in the first place.

If you want to give him th eplus for making the "logical" decision to hose down the dog and put it back up there, you still have to deal with his "logical" decision to put the dog up there in the first place.

bugontherug: Partially misses the point. Most people get upset when their dog is sick, because they love their dog. Romney didn't.

Romney didn't get upset when his dog was sick. Even if that is true, which you don't actually know, who gives a fark? From that, you make the incorrect leap to therefore that means he does not love his dog. Not everyone gets upset so easily, not everyone cries at girlie movies. Crying is what happens when you can't handle the situation. What Romney did was better than being upset, Romney actually did something about it.

shiat from a terrified animal is going to be quite different in consistency than a dogs regular bowel movement. A scared, distressed dog is going to be vile and squirty.

BloodySaxon: Notabunny: BloodySaxon: Old-ass non stories rock!

It shows one of Romney's character traits. It shows what kind of man he is. That it happened years ago and defends it today shows he hasn't changed. It was a deeply cruel and creepy thing to do, and will make most Americas pause when they think of Romney.

Really? My family had issues with a dog shiatting himself in a crate anytime we had to go to the vet. OH THE HUMANITY!

This is goofy. There are better things to dig up on Romney.

Next you're going to tell me that venture capitalism is chaotic and therefore EVIL!


Was the crate strapped to the roof of your car while you and your family reached highway speeds?

skullkrusher: Who says the dog spontaneously shat itself? Maybe it had been up there for 5 hours and had to take a shiat? Dogs shiat several times a day, no? No, I haven't had a dog since I was very little.


Dogs can hold it extremely well. When I picked up my dog, it was a two day road trip. She held it the whole way, despite constant breaks to try to get her to go...turned out she's just picky, and as soon as we got home she recognized it as such and went. The only time dogs can't hold it are when they're abused (and lose their instinct to not shiat where they sleep), when they're sick, when they're scared (and even then, they'll only shiat when they already have to shiat, otherwise it's more musky grossness than feces), or when they get old and have bowel problems.

InmanRoshi: Remember folks, in Fark Independent mysterio world direct actions have direct consequences and people should be held accountable ... unless it involves a Republican. Maybe the dog strapped to the roof was shiatting itself out of terror or maybe it was shiatting itself out of joy that it's getting the fun ride that 99.999% of family pets would never get from their owners. It's all so vague and nebulous and ambiguous, so let's not judge.


Seriously! Let's focus on the fact that Fartbongo had the GALL to put Bo on the most recent White House Christmas card instead of traditional and religious signs of the season. (I'm not kidding. This is real: Link (new window) )

How about the accusation that the SeeKriT Muuslin is spending too much time shopping for his dog instead of working hard? (Not making this one up, either. Link (new window) )

Mitt values what is truly important instead of treating his animal like a little deity.

After reading the recent Vanity Fair expose on Mitt, he seems like a really, really, really strange dude. Ned Flanders without the warmth and humanity. He is definitely not someone "I would want to have a beer with" (putting aside the fact that he doesn't drink).

skullkrusher: CPennypacker: skullkrusher: CPennypacker: OK, maybe it shiat itself because it was sick. Shouldn't he take it down if its sick?

Or maybe it shat itself because Romney would make a bad President so that's why he put it back on the roof?

Do you have disassociative identity disorder or something?

why? because I find your attempts to find reasons why the dog shat itself aside from "dogs sometimes takes shiats" to be amusing?

Anyway, the point is, if Romney can't keep his dog from sh*tting all over his car, how's he going to run an entire country?

skullkrusher: CPennypacker: skullkrusher: CPennypacker: lennavan: It isnt often but I gotta disagree with Maddow on this one. Yeah, actually I do want a cold emotionless president making decisions, not someone who is going to make a stupid decision because he's following his/her emotions.

What's more, no, this story does not have legs. It actually sounded like a pretty reasonable thing to do, I'd venture the dog did not fit in the car and the family wanted to bring it with. It wasn't a cold calculated crisis management, he hosed the dog off. It's not like he just kept driving. Lots of reasons to attack Romney, this isn't one.

He hosed the dog off then he put him back in the crate and kept driving. He was wrong and so are you.

never been a fan of dogs and don't know much about them. If we're not upset about him putting the dog in the crate in the first place, why are we upset about him putting the dog back in the crate after cleaning him off?

Well, his argument was that the dog loved to go up there. So when the dog shiats itself in terror shouldn't that be a clue that maybe he doesn't like it so much?

sometimes dogs shiat themselves because they have to shiat, no? Who says it "shiat itself in terror"? Dr Rachel?


Well, it should be pointed out that Rachel Maddow does indeed hold a Doctorate granted by Oxford. She's not a medical doctor by any stretch, but Dr. Maddow is a lot smarter than most of us. (And most, if not all, of the jokers hoping for the Republican nomination.)

A stupid decision like torturing a dog just because his kids wanted to bring it with, even though it was impractical?

No, Romney would never make an irrational decision like that.

Ricardo Klement: heavymetal: Romney and his family in the car = Large corporations & the 1%

The dog in the box on the top of the car = The working class & poor

And when we shiat ourselves in the form of OWS protests, they'll pull over, have the police clear the parks, hose down the encampments, and get back to business as usual.


I wouldn't say that the OWS protests are people "shiatting themselves." It's more like the mournful wailing the dog did because he was scared he would die as he was shoved into the crate and the car accelerated.

Ricardo Klement: CPennypacker: Did you guys see that interview? Hilarious. He was trying to say that the dog was safe from the wind because he was in an airtight crate. Am I the only one who sees the problem with putting a dog in an airtight crate?

No. I was wondering why none of the pundits noticed. I think Romney said it was airtight to debunk the notion that feces could have escaped, but forgot that something has to get in.


I think Rachel Maddow wondered if the dog was in scuba gear.

But I think the main message here was that Romney's response to this was to hose off the dog and car, then get back in the car and KEEP DRIVING WITH THE DOG ON THE ROOF.

Romney claimed the dog enjoyed those rides, and would even climb up there himself. That's a dog I can relate to. Whenever I'm having the time of my life -- boom! -- diarrhea.

It's not that Romney put his dog on the roof. Remember how different standards were in 1983.

Yeah, those were heady times.

Back in '83, we made our dogs ride on top of the car until they sh*t all over our luggage all the time. We called it "Sh*t-riding," and you weren't nothin unless you did it.

Meh. Seriously, there doesn't need to be an increased lexicon for each candidate.

But if we must:

Huntsman: v To ignore party lines and work across aisles for the good of all...then get punished for it.

Perry: v. To shoot your load alone on a Saturday night

Gingrich: v. To cheat on your wife with an owl.
