Seamus the dog derails another Republican

Today at lunch I was meeting with some needlework groups of the needlework group I'm in. As we were leaving one of the ladies asked about the colt we had a month ago and wanted to know what we finally decided to name him.

I said, "Seamus" and started laughing. One, an avowed right winger, asked, "Seamus?" and I answered, "Yes, I named him for Mitt Romney's dog."

This completely confused her since she knows that I am a flaming liberal so another member and I were explaining why Mitt's dog is sort of famous to our side of the political spectrum. The right winger had not heard the story of Seamus and the Romney clan trip to Canada.

At first she thought we were joking, because we were laughing about it but then she realized that we were serious about the incident with the car carrier on the roof of the car - and she was OUTRAGED! The right winger is an animal lover and could not believe any sane human being would be so callous as to travel with a dog in a carrier strapped to the roof of their car. She got REALLY pissed when I told her about Mitt stopping to hose down the car, carrier, and dog only to continue on the trip.

We all agreed that someone who would do that to a dog is just not right in the head. I can't wait to see how she deals with it in the future, though she could easily be one of the Tea Party types that doesn't like Mitt anyway.

1. Next time you see her throw in the baptizing the dead and Mitt's magic underwear. That should

really make her realize this man is REALLY just not right in the head.

2. She's not really religious but I don't know how she feels about it really

And she has not said who she is for this time around, though she still has a McCain Palin sticker on her truck.

I know she's made comments about some of the women who are more religious, such as "those of you who go to church every week" but I don't know how she really feels about any religion.
