Devo to unleash song about Mitt Romney's dog

Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! mocks the Republican presidential candidate by documenting the time he strapped the family dog to his car roof during a 12-hour road trip in the 80s.

Devo's next song is about Mitt Romney's dog. The American new wave band are putting an Irish setter front and centre on Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus), which takes fire at the Republican presidential candidate.

Twenty-nine years ago Romney took his family on a 12-hour road trip from Boston to Ontario, strapping the family dog to a kennel on their car roof. As the Chevrolet station wagon barrelled down the highway, Seamus clung on for dear life; even after the dog suffered a diarrhoea attack, Romney just sprayed everything down and continued with the journey.

I assume Devo making a song about actually eating a dog is off limits?

THIS is all they've got?

Romney's not my guy, but seriously? I bet the dog actually liked it: he could see out and was in the wind. I've seen many dogs stick their heads out the window.

And what was the leader of the "Choom Gang" doing twenty-nine years ago?

I'm sure he preferred it to being eaten.

I will never get this faux controversy. My neighbor had a similar roof cage, and when they went on a trip the dog would climb onto the roof of their car, and whimper until they let him in. He LOVED that thing.

Devo have ALWAYS hated Republicans, especially Reagan since the early 80’s.

They made an impromptu benefit concert for Nohbama in 2008 and their recorded live concerts had a graphic showing Reagan as ‘evil”. It doesn’t surprise me these old, fat toads would do something like this.

Yeah ... along the lines of Devo, Ian Anderson’s great band should re-release “Bungle in the Jungle” ... but that would probably be considered racist by the perpetually-offended.

Seamus, however, did not enjoy this particular ride.
The incident: dog excrement found on the roof and windows of the Romney station wagon. How it got there: Romney strapped a dog carrier — with the family dog Seamus, an Irish Setter, in it — to the roof of the family station wagon for a twelve hour drive from Boston to Ontario, which the family apparently completed, despite Seamus's rather visceral protest. Link
Evidently, Romney did pull over and hose off the dog, and cage, and car, but then put Seamus right back into the cage. If anything it shows Romney's disconnect to discomfort. Mitt's allowance of $50 abortions through Romneycare bothers me a whole lot more, but being a dog lover, I really like this guy's site.

These libs are confusing me, I can’t figure out if the Romneys hate animals or love them more than people..

I went rabbit hunting with family friends, who took their dogs to scare up the rabbits. These dogs could not have been more excited when called to leave, as they jumped into the trunk of the old chevy impala and down went the lid, they were quiet on the ride and found us at least 12 rabbits. Just to illustrate the danger of such a job, the oldest dog got shot jumping a log and the owner put him down on the spot.

That is so gross, but like I said, has anyone seen “Bo” lately? I wish someone talented/creative would come out with a song against Obama and all the children that have died on his watch. And include the pained post-abortive mothers who were left in the trenches wounded and now silenced or embittered. I hope the DogsAgainstRomney guy is not a Democrat. I did not get that feeling originally during the primaries, but maybe he is, in which case he would be a hypo”crate.”

Who funds them? And where does it state they are working for the re-election of Barack Obama? (I hadn’t seen that previously.) And I’m not a troll. It would have been nice if you did some research on my posting history before you started throwing out insults. This is one of the reasons why people leave Free Republic.

Well if the biggest thing the Democrats have on Romney is him strapping a dog to the top of a car in a crate some 30 years ago, then they are about out of bullets.

As a dog-owner, I wouldn't do that with my dog but I wouldn't consider it cruel unless it was in the winter time or in inclement weather. Romney's excuse is that the dog had diarrhea but I think the dog would have been better off in a kennel while they were taking their trip.

For some reason, the movie "Vacation" comes to mind as a younger Mitt and Ann Romney would probably resemble Clark and Ellen Griswold!

So what about people who let their dogs ride in the back of pickups or stick their head out the car window? What's the diff?

I would say it is more dangerous for a dog to ride loose in the open bed of a pickup, only because it might jump out of the truck and into traffic (if my dog saw a rabbit or deer on the side of the road, she would be gone in a heartbeat). So in that situation probably safer on the roof rack in a cage.

As for hanging their heads out car windows, I let my dog do that all the time but worry that something might get into her eye.
