Earlier today, nearly 30 years after Mitt Romney took a twelve-hour drive with Seamus, the family's diarrheal dog, strapped to the roof of the car inside an air-tight kennel — and nearly 5 years after the story was first reported by the Boston Globe — Obama adviser David Axelrod tweeted out a photo of President Obama riding in a car with Bo, along with this message: "How loving owners transport their dogs." Burn.

Possible October surprise: Days before the election, Seamus, who has been kept in suspended animation by the Democratic Machine, gives a nationally televised tell-all press conference with Gloria Allred.
