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.

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?
Devo eh? They are going to look pretty old in their red plastic hats.
I'm sure he preferred it to being eaten.

Seamus was safer on the roof of Mitt Romney’s car than on the roof of Obama’s mouth.” - Howie Carr
Devo is just looking for an opportunity to remain relevant in a world where they are no longer relevant.
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.
They ain’t Jethro Tull, thats for sure.

“SHOULD WE WHIP IT? This will help you decide.”
Dear Mark and the boys: Dogs are friends, not food. (And I’m singing that to the tune of “Time Out For Fun”.)
They will probably need to hose down those devo hats. Who knows where they have been.
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.
These dogs don’t know what’s best for them. They are being agitated by professional canine organizers.
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.
Mitt was just using his Freedom of Choice.
“We are DEVO. D-U-M.B.”
This photo is so disturbing in many ways, touché!
Funny I was just writing a song about Obamsa’s son called “Don’t Hood Rat Me”
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.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. LinkEvidently, 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.
One One Hit Wonder shilling for another I guess...
Next time Mitt campaigns in front of coal miners he should tweek the Spud Boys by playing their version of “Working in a Coal Mine.”
Is it going to be followed by a song about how they treat their horse better than people?
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.
Devo is still around? I haven’t seen them since 1981!
President Obama is the ONLY United States President that had eaten dog meat. In the future...
“Dogs’ for $800...
These dogs dont know whats best for them. They are being agitated by professional canine organizers.Ruh roh!
Apparently, they've turned blue with age ...
They had to wear blue hats. Red hats are for (R)s.
This is fairly pathetic.
Oh, I bet you it sucks more than 0’s reelection campaign.
Is he/they someone I should have heard of?
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.”
Dog already had intestinal problems—that is why he got put up on the roof.
I find it very disturbing that you keep pimping that site, which has as its goal the re-election of Barack Obama.
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.
Until this very thread, I had never heard of Devo.
Until this very thread, I had never heard of Devo.Their hit song "Whip It," was popular in 1980. I didn't realize they were still around.
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?
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.
Is further proof necessary?
