Romney Goes to the Dogs -- in a Wagon Queen Family Truckster

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's crude Chevy Chase impersonation has landed him in the doghouse with animal lovers.

TIME reports Mr Romney once strapped the family pet -- "Seamus," an Irish Setter -- to the roof of the family car for a 12 hour trip to Canada. Seamus was at least in a dog carrier. But Massachusetts' animal cruelty laws forbid this sort of treatment. Mr Romney was governor of Massachusetts.

In "National Lampoon's Vacation," Chevy Chase's character ties a dog to the bumper of the family wagon and forgets about it until after a motorcycle cop pulls him over for speeding several miles later. (TIME)
