Best Punchline *Evar*

New York Times editorialist Gail Collins on the demise of the Mitt Romney campaign :

“All I know is somewhere in doggie heaven, an Irish setter is laughing.”

A bit of explanation for non -political or non-dog junkies: Romney’s wife Ann, I think it was, told what she must have believed would come across as a cute story reflecting how efficient her husband is: that when the family used to take car trips, they would leave their Irish Setter Seamus in a dog crate up on the roof for hours while they drove – because Mitt would not stop until he reached the day’s destination.

Until one day when he (Seamus) shat all over the car.

Needless to say, listeners didn’t interpret that behavior as being efficient, they interpreted it as being cruel.
