David Letterman on Mitt Romney's Crate-Gate

Last night, David Letterman had Jon Stewart on Late Night to talk politics. About Mitt Romney, Letterman said:

"As a president, you want a guy who makes good decisions. Putting your dog on the roof of your not a good idea. That's it. End of story. I don't care about anything else."

See the video clip here.



How Loving Families Transport Their Pets

This is how loving families transport their pets. NOT strapped to the roof of the car like Mitt Romney does to his poor Irish Setter, Seamus.

American Kennel Club Spokeswoman Scolds Romney

When asked about today's Dogs Against Romney protest outside the Westminster Dog Show in New York City, American Kennel Club Spokesperson Lisa Peterson said she was aware of the Romney story.
"The AKC promotes responsible dog ownership [and] putting  dog in a crate for car travel is the first step toward responsible dog ownership," Peterson said. "The second step would be to put that crate in the car," she added.


Dogs Against Romney Protest at Westminster Dog Show: Visuals

WELCOME to all our new readers from the New York Times Caucus Blog, the Rachel Maddow Blog, and many, many others. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the whole back-story about Mitt Romney's dog abuse by reading all the links featured HERE.

Then, be sure to join our community on Facebook (26,000 strong and growing) to be part of he conversation, and help share this important message with people all over the United States. 

Here is a collection of images scraped from Twitter during the press event today outside the Westminster Dog Show at Madison Square Garden. We had a bunch of protesters, at least 8 dogs, and a TON of media there. Conservative media are trying to talk-down the impact of the protest, but the fact is it is the largest Dogs Against Romney protest to date, and we have not done too terribly with media exposure with those smaller events. The visuals from the event today are devastating for Mitt Romney. They will appear all over the news and many more people will begin asking the question: "Mitt Romney did what?" And that, my dog-loving friends, is a win.

Saturday Night Live Makes Fun of Mitt Romney Dog on Roof Story

VIDEO CLIP BELOW: Last night, Saturday Night Live did an opening sketch featuring an actor playing Mitt Romney sitting his den, talking about the results of last week's Republican primaries. With Romney in his den is a beautiful Golden Retriever, whom the Romney character refers to as "Baron" (purportedly Romney's new dog). Toward the end of the bit, Baron begins barking loudly at Romney, interrupting him repeatedly. The live audience loves it, and then Romney scolds the dog saying, "Do you want to go back up on the roof?" 

While none of us here at Dogs Against Romney think the true story about how Mitt Romney treated his dog is funny, Saturday Night Live just helped us introduce the story to millions of people, whom we can educate about the truly horrid details by directing them to read THIS.
