    “Which reminds me of an old joke,” said Barack Obama, after mentioning Sarah Palin. “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious.”


    I’m sure the usual suspects will be “outraged” at that joke but it’s hilarious and a perfect way to defuse the “growing up in Indonesia Obama ate dog meat!” pseudo-criticism.

    Okay, I am just a bumpkin from Baltimore, but did he make a cannibalism or a cunnilingus joke with that line?

  3. AdamA says

    @Angela I don’t think it was either cannibalism or cunnilingus! He’s making jokes about how the GOP are trying to make an issue out of how he ate dog meat (once, as a boy in Indonesia).

  4. Paul R says

    I don’t understand how Romney let that story get out. The dog should have stayed home or the story should have stayed a secret.

  5. says

    No, Paul R. What Romney should have done is hire a dogsitter. That’s what people with common sense and decency do.

    So Hank, I take it that you think people with “common decency” also EAT DOGS?! lol

    There’s nothing wrong with eating dogs. Would I do it? No, it’s not part of our culture. But we do eat chickens, pigs (which some people do keep as pets), and cows, which in other cultures are kept as pets or sacred. That’s part of the “circle of life” :) Putting your soaking wet dog in a crate on top of your car for over 12 hours is just cruel and unusual.
