Imagine a Guy Who Straps a Dog to the Roof of His Car for a 12-Hour Drive. Now Imagine He Thinks He's Fit To Be President.

Well, you don't have to imagine it. I'm not kidding: Mitt Romney did it. ("Romney's Cruel Canine Adventure", Time)

And when his kids noticed the shit running down the windshield, Romney pulled over, hosed down the poor panicked dog, his carrier and the car, and got back on the road.

This is only the second most monstrously cruel act I've heard about -- Bill Frist's adopting cats for home dissection still rules -- but just imagine: this man thinks he has the good judgment needed to lead our country.

I've heard all kinds of "tests" advanced for how voters pick a president: who you'd like to have a beer with, who you'd like to have over for dinner, who you'd let babysit your kids, and other ridiculous tests.

I usually imagine it's 9am and I just found out at 6pm my house will be seized and my assets will be frozen. I have no idea why. Which candidate would I ask to come over and help me figure it out?

But let's start with something simpler: Which candidate would you trust not to strap a dog to the roof of his car??

"The part of it where actually I think Larry may have lost some viewers is at the beginning of the interview he -- I can't believe he did this -- he accidentally called her 'Ringo.'"

Proof of What Dog Lovers Have Always Known: Raised Properly, a Pit Bull Can Be a Wonderful Pet

In Other News, Wile E. Coyote Calls For End to Anti-Road Runner Violence

"We as an industry have micromanaged the process to too great of a degree. Working with someone who will give great creators some freedom will be a welcome change."

-- Dana Walden of 20th Century Fox Television, on Ben Silverman (L.A. Times, 6/27/07)

If You're Wondering Why I Haven't Been Posting Much This Week...

... you can blame and/or thank ZZ Top and Carmen Electra. ZZ Top would be amazing enough without Carmen Electra. But I mean, come on... it's Carmen Electra.

The extended version below contains a Carmen-less (but still kickasstacular) "Sharp-Dressed Man." I'm still saving up for my own red Eliminator.
