Well. That entire ‘Romney’s dog on the car roof’ thing didn’t really go the way that Team Obama intended it to, did it?
If you missed it, here’s the background: agents from Obama’s campaign team started up with that old story about the time that Mitt Romney drove cross-country with his dog in a carrying case that had been lashed to the top of the car. Said relating of said story was getting pretty well disseminated until it got pointed out that as a kid Barack Obama once ate a dog, which was then disseminated in its turn – including by agents of Romney’s campaign, which is an important point – until the Obama campaign started arguing that bringing that up was equivalent to attacking a child. Which is funny, because Barack Obama only told that story in the first place because it made him seem more exotic and transgressive; which was great for 2008, and not so great for 2012.
