I'm sure everyone by now has heard about Mitt Romney strapping the family dog atop his vehicle for a trip. Here's the best take on the implications I've read yet.

Note to reporters: Cool-headed crisis management is more impressive when you're not responsible for creating the easily foreseeable crisis to manage.
Strapping the family pet to the car's roof was an amusing anecdote for National Lampoons, but is normally preceded by the warning for other people to not try it themselves. I mean, what kind of cruel bastard would treat their family pet that way?
Oh well. if his Presidential campaign doesn't work out, he can always apply for CEO of Air Canada."
