R.I.P. Barney Bush

You remember former First Dog Barney, the black mischievous Scottish Terrier who was the star of Barney Cam, straight from the White House?

He died at the age of 12.

As with other White House pets, his main job was to humanize the image of his master. And he did a terrific job. No PR agency, no press secretary could hold a candle to Barney when it came to portraying President Bush as a man who cared. (Take note, Mitt Romney.)

R.I.P., Barney Bush.
