Obama has gone to the dogs — and eaten them

The debate about “which candidate treats dogs worse” inevitably descended into farce, with almost no intermediate steps.  Putting aside the insanity of spinning a presidential campaign around decades’ old decisions about dogs, Americans are probably going to be sympathetic to putting a dog in a protected hutch on the roof of a car, rather than forcing it to be in a car with five children and a ton of luggage.  After all, everyone knows that dogs like to do this:

Americans, however, are probably less sympathetic when it comes to dog a l’orange, or other tasty Fido fricassees.  In America, dogs are man’s best friend, not man’s favorite meat.

With that in mind, James Taranto offers some truly excellent “Obama has gone to the dogs — and eaten them” jokes:

#ObamaDogRecipes: Yorkshire terrier pudding, mutt chop, Pekingese duck, bichon frisee salad, beagle with cream cheese, pure bread.

“So, Mr. President, where shall we go to eat?” “I know a great Spot.”

If you want a friend in Washington, don’t eat him (credit to Jim Geraghty).

Happiness is a warm puppy, with a side of fries.

Obama’s favorite fast-food joint? Checkers (Patrick Daly).

I wouldn’t vote for that guy for dogcatcher.

Did you hear about the insomniac polyphagiac president? He lies awake at night wondering if there is a dog.

My friend Earl, however, sent me the best joke I’ve seen yet when it comes to Obama’s penchant for taking a familiar, loving expression (“You’re so sweet, I could just eat you up”), and turning it into a multicultural, autobiographical boast about gnawing on a dog’s bones (and not the ones that the dog himself buried in the back yard for later consumption):

    Well..he really stepped in “it” – no wonder Michelle is obsessed with food pyramids.

    My favorite find of the day:

    “If you like your dachshund, you can eat your dachshund.”

    About time the Seamus story was stopped in its tracks. This tactic was used by the Obama campaign and the MSM (NYT’s Gail Collins has mentioned 50 times in her columns) to paint Mitt as weird and heartless. Now, whenever one thinks of Obama & Bo, there’s also the mental image of Obama as a child  eating dog and not being traumatized by it.

    In the last month or so, this is at least the third time that at lefty/Demo attempt to put down a wingnut/Pub has been met with stalwart resistance. Attempts to get Rush off the air because of his admittedly over the top “slut” remark led to Bill Maher’s much more misogynistic remarks being highlighted. Hillary Rosen’s crack about Ann Romney never having worked a day in her life got thrown back, with force. And now the dog remark- which got the White House endorsement with David Axelrod, everybody’s favorite Chicago sleazemongerer, getting into the act. And then Obama’s having eaten dog becomes the inspiration for many jokes.
     
    Are we seeing a pattern here?
     
    This is going to be the nastiest election in years. NObama cannot run on his dismal record, done in by the dismal science, so he and his minions will go into attack mode. Romney has shown he will attack right back- for which I commend him.

    If a young Obama gave credence to his uncle’s animist beliefs; that one was imbued with the characteristics of the animals consumed, we can be confident that when his peers asked “What’s up, Dog?”, they meant it.

    what movie is that? that’s not the first time it’s been used like this.
    Hitler was a vegetarian by the way. I have always thought that was interesting!
