But maybe after reading this, people will shut their gobs and concentrate on, y'know, issues that are really important.
The abbrieviated pieces of nothing on the internet who are yukking it up over the story about Mr. Obama, as a child, eating dog meat haven't the mental capacity to see the difference between an adult, Willard Romney, strapping his terrified dog to the top of his family car and driving hundreds of miles and a child who ate something his parents put in front of him, a sort of food that is commonly served in that part of the world. [Doesn't this story give the lie to the idea that Mr. Obama is a secret Muslim? Muslim's are forbidden to be near dogs, never mind eat them!].
These lumpish half-wits think that what an adult male freely chooses to do is equal to what a child is made to do. But more to the point, what is the point?
Barack Obama wrote about this childhood experience almost twenty years ago:
"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share."
From Obama's autobiography.
and not one Gooper bothered to go on FAUX NOOZ and breathlessly tell the squirrel heads on that cable "news" station about this miniscule scooby-dooby scoop. It was only when the even older story about Willard got around the intertubes that some tedious measle-brain decided to dig up Obama's dog tasting incident and make a feeble attempt at equivalency. The aforementioned abbreviated pieces of nothing thought that was a winnah! And they celebrated this titty-for-tatty numbskullery like a kid tee-heeing over having slipped a whoopie cushion under Uncle Billy-Bob's keester.
But wait! There's more!
Now comes this story [will it never end?]:
Birthday Fundraiser For Ann Romney Hosted By Man Who Once Barbecued A Dog
On Monday, Romney will be the beneficiary of a fundraiser that is being hosted for him by Fred Malek. Who is Malek? He is the former President of Marriott Hotels and Northwest Airlines; former assistant to U.S. Presidents Richard Nixon and H.W. Bush; and former National Finance Committee Co-Chair for John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Fred Malek is also part of a group of men who were arrested after killing and barbecuing a dog in a city park in Peoria, IL in 1959.
When asked about the incident in 2006, Malek offered this explanation: He said he went to Peoria in the summer of '59 to visit friends at Bradley University. They got “drunk out of their minds” and he “didn't know why” one of the other men had killed the dog, that he was “not a participant” and that he was in “no position to stop it.”
So what's the score now?
Willard 2, Obama 1?
That makes this whole circus a Three Dog Nightmare.
Can we just stop it?
