Let's think of Seamus one more time

In her last pre-election column, Gail Collins brings up the Seamus-the-dog one more time, only to tell us that we should "forget about the fact that Mitt Romney once drove to Canada with the family dog strapped to the roof of the car." Why? "If he [Romney] loses, nobody will care. If he wins, we'll have so many other things to worry about."

Of course, one of the best ways to make someone picture a situation is to tell that person not to picture it. So let's all think of Seamus one more time -- and of my 2007 prediction that a person who doesn't show compassion towards the family dog will not be elected President of the United States.
