And, as you know, hot dog is Mitt Romney's favorite meat.


Meat 'n' Mitt — America's favorite combo.

Actually... if I were Mitt, I'd worry about prodding people with "dog"... If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's an entire Wikipedia article, "Mitt Romney dog incident." From that article:
Responding to Democrats who emphasized the Seamus story, conservative bloggers such as Jim Treacher drew a comparison between the Seamus incident and Barack Obama sampling dog meat as a child in Indonesia, where it is a local delicacy, as mentioned in Obama's autobiography. While an Obama spokesman called it an attack on a small child, Obama himself has displayed a sense of humor about it.

The White House Correspondents' Dinner saw Obama saying that Sarah Palin's stint guest hosting The Today Show reminded him of an old query: "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious." Delaney, Arthur; Stuart, Hunter (April 30, 2012). "Obama Ate Dog, And He'd Do It Again To Remind You Of Seamus Romney". Huffington Post (Video).
Ah, I got to use my old "Obamedy" tag again. And it's interesting to see Sarah Palin again. She's been off the radar screen for quite a while. Do we ever hear of her these days? Well, there's this outré acknowledgment from Sacha Baron Cohen, who just got an Emmy nomination for that barely watchable show he put out:
"While I am flattered at these nods, it is a shame that my co-stars were not recognized," Cohen wrote on Twitter. "Particularly Dick Cheney, who I had hoped would come across on camera as someone who’d gleefully sent hundreds of thousands to their pointless death — and boy did he deliver." He added, "There’s one more person I need to thank even though she didn’t appear in the final project, Sarah Palin. Sarah, if you are out there, and you are WAY out there, please know the last time unseen footage generated as much interest, was when Donald Trump visited a Moscow hotel room."
Well, this post went down the rat hole. Here we are in the Steele dossier!

Isn't Romney making exactly that allusion to that past "scandal"?

narciso said...

He was a basenghi for four years, hes a rottweiler now.

rhhardin said...

AOC should avoid dog too lest people immediately think of blow jobs.

Ingachuck'stoothlessARM said...

frankly speaking, Mitt's a weenie

Send him back! Send him back! Send him back!

doctrev said...

Wow, Obama said that? Even I don't remember that, despite it being a news item back in April 2012, and I'm never short of reasons to hate the guy. The fact Mitt Romney didn't rake him over the coals constantly for it is just one more reason the base -loathes- Romney, along with the people who give Romney the slightest bit of legitimacy.

BamaBadgOR said...

Is this the same Mittens who kicked Rick Grenell, Trump's star ambassador to Germany, off his 2012 campaign committee because Grenell is gay?

Mike (MJB Wolf) said...

Yep down the rat hole! But seriously, my wife was just wondering if America would be ready for President Palin by 2024. I think so. We need someone to carry the Trumpian torch and I think she can do it.

narciso said...

Very same, like I say full basenghi.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

The collective left actually believe Trump hired hookers to pee on him. or the mattress or whatever.

is there a shred of proof? Lets see it. Oooo I know - create the proof.

Laslo Spatula said...

There is more than a touch of resigned sadness to Mitt's eyes.

He can't pull off the New England version of the British stiff upper lip that he no doubt aspires to, nor does he possess the rheumy twinkle of an aged Kennedy who knows that death will claim him before his conscience fully does.

A muzak version of 'Eleanor Rigby' should gently accompany him when he looks in the mirror.

I am Laslo.

rehajm said...

Yes. Finding creative ways to make fun of Mitt has surpassed baseball as America's favorite pastime. I'm working with Bain Capital on developing a professional league around it. Alas, there will be no franchise in Salt Lake City.

Drago said...

The mere suggestion that Romney and Ryan would fight back against obambi/Biden draws howls of laughter.
Both Romney and Ryan surrendered on liveTV to their true allies: the dems.

Romney's surrender is well known, but do you recall the VP debate where Biden vomited up the "republicans, always betting against the country"?

Ryans response?.......respectful silence.

Thats when I knew it was all over. Long long before the moronic and disastrous Project Orca failure.

Amadeus 48 said...

Cortez is goofy. Omar is goofy. Cohen is goofy. Romney is goofy.

These are the goofy years.

But none of them is funny.

Mike (MJB Wolf) said...

Ah yes Orca, Romney’s killer whale app. Sheesh.

narciso said...

Remember they paid a jackass to spread those lies against Palin, which they recirculated in that mcguiness book,

rehajm said...

Hot dogs are gross with stuff on them. I don't know about dog...

narciso said...

It was a delicacy in indonesia,

Dave Begley said...

"Dick Cheney, who I had hoped would come across on camera as someone who’d gleefully sent hundreds of thousands to their pointless death...."

Pointless? They were at war with the West.

This is the kind of stuff is why we hate the Left.

Big Mike said...

Well, this post went down the rat hole.

With respect, Madam Professor, who took it there?

Dave Begley said...

Speaking of rats. How about a squad of Althouse Rats to decorate the blog?

hombre said...

No Talent Cohen pandering to delusional “entertainment” industry.

Ingachuck'stoothlessARM said...

then there were these classics:

"I'd rather have a president with a dog on the roof of his car than one with a dog on the roof of his mouth"

"Better a president with Magic Underwear than an Emperor With No Clothes"

****

btw---is it pronounced 'miTTenz', or 'midd-enz' ?

narciso said...

It's spelled raymond luxury yacht.

AustinRoth said...

Is Romney even relevant anymore?

Ingachuck'stoothlessARM said...

actually, Mitt's a regular guy--

We remember this one time hanging out at the country club--

we laughed so hard, Remy Martin came out our nose!

Howard said...

Obama left him holding his hotdog in his mitt

The Vault Dweller said...

OOf, I hate that Romney is trying to keep his name in the ring for the future. He should just go away/ Also as someone from Chicago, he should only have mustard, sport peppers, tomaatoes, onions, celery salt, and dill pickle slicce. Anything else, and anything more is communist.

The Vault Dweller said...

I'm sorry. I didn't include the neon green relish. But for my part that sounds like going to Eaton and demanding the received pronunciation, right away.

Darrell said...

They're still here. Inga is back and Purple Penquin is too. All the others except Ritmo.

purplepenquin said...

When I was a child, I put ketchup on my h'dog.
But when I became an adult I set aside childish things,
and started using mustard instead.

(Tho, truth be told, it has to be a good-grade hotdog for me to sink my teeth into it. And even then, it is most likely smothered in chili&onions.)



PS - How obsessed does one have to be about someone else in order to bring 'em up in threads they haven't even commented in? Asking for a friend...

Ann Althouse said...

"Speaking of rats. How about a squad of Althouse Rats to decorate the blog?"

To draw 4 rats and call it "The Squad" would be called racist. You can't portray nonwhite human beings as animals. It's a cartoon no-no.

purplepenquin said...

"I hate that Romney is trying to keep his name in the ring for the future"

He wasn't thinking politically when he made this comment...should've said "brats" instead of "hot dog" in order to secure the crucial Wisconsin-votes.


Recently heard that bologna is nothing more than hot-dogs for people who prefer pancakes, and I think that is important to keep in mind while talking about this issue.

Yancey Ward said...

A well grilled hot dog requires no topping, in my opinion. However, the only thing I really want on a hot dog is yellow mustard most times.

Ralph L said...

I don't like mustard, which is fortunate, because it doesn't like me.

Big Mike said...

Mitt looks out of place in camo. Camo is for soldiers and.hunters and manly men.

traditionalguy said...

Mitt is a player with the Chinese money. His loyalty is not to Americans but to his Fortune.

Unknown said...

btw---is it pronounced 'miTTenz', or 'midd-enz' ?

Well, if if you're from New Jersey, it would be "mi-enz"

Fen said...

Not wild about Mitt. I recall something pervy about his cruelty to animals and binders full of porn or somesuch. He should retire from public life to spend more time with his family. I'm certainly not going out on a limb for him.

Well, this post went down the rat hole.

To be fair, so did Mitt’s career.

who just got an Emmy nomination for that barely watchable show he put out

It wasn't nominated for watchability it was nominated because it was important politically to lefties. I read Cohen's taunts and my first thought was how many people watched his shit show? Wiki says it was 70th highest-rated original show on cable the night it premiered...

Seemingly unrelated, Netflix today reported a drop in US subscribers for the first time. Full disclosure: I'm one of the ones who dropped them. Their share price is off over 11% at the moment...

Seemingly unrelated, last year Netflix signed a multiyear agreement with the Barack and Michelle Obama to produce original programming...

I could go on...

Fen said...

"someone who’d gleefully sent hundreds of thousands to their pointless death...."

Yes, mocking the burden that all leaders face when they order their troops into battle, from the President down to the Platoon Sgt, is really despicable.

BudBrown said...

Anytime the dog episode gets mentioned reminds me how trashy and stupid the dems have become. Saddest look I ever saw was on a friend's setter's face as I helped push his carrier into the airport.

Big Mike: "Mitt looks out of place in camo. Camo is for soldiers and.hunters and manly men."

John Kerry pretending to be a guys guy in Ohio in 2004 in a small store (another election the Left/dems claim to this day was stolen): “Can I get me a hunting license here?”

That's the kind of Guy's Guy talk that sets every LLR's heart aflutter.

Mitt's eyes often look sad.

rcocean said...

Mitt Romney. The Organization man. The man in the gray flannel suit. Mr. Plastic. The Empty suit. The Guy who fired your Dad. Mr. Fake sincerity. Mr. Flip Flop.

Severely conservative Westerner or Moderate Yale man? Hates Trump or wants his support? For Amnesty or against it? Which of his 12 houses is he living in today?

You can tell when someone is doing something they don't really believe is good.

Romney knows he is a betrayer and beneath contempt.
