Video: Obama dog-eating meme reaches its inevitable conclusion

posted at 10:11 pm on April 18, 2012 by Allahpundit

A meme’s not really a meme on the Internet until it gets its very own “Downfall” parody so here’s the “dogeater-in-chief” gag being enshrined in the pantheon before your very eyes. I’m expecting a “Hitler reacts to that terrible ‘hot girls’ song” clip to hit YouTube too before the week is out so keep watching this space for that.

Over at HuffPo, Columbia University prof Lincoln Mitchell is taking the “Romney put Seamus in a kennel on the roof” story … very seriously indeed:

For many voters, treating a dog this way is unimaginable and could only be done by somebody who has a problem empathizing with others. For these voters it is not hard to make the leap that the kind of man who could hose off the sick, family dog and keep driving is also the kind of man who could build a career around making companies more efficient by suggesting massive layoffs. This is, of course, the major negative that was used against Romney in the Republican primaries and will be used against him again by the Democrats and President Obama in the general election…

This incident makes it very difficult for Romney to present the personal side of his biography to voters in a positive light. This is an unfortunate development for Romney because, by most accounts, the Republican candidate is a good and dedicated father and grandfather, but this incident will make it harder for Romney to show that side of himself to voters. Every family picture from when Romney’s children were young will be a reminder not of Romney’s attractive family, but of how he mistreated their dog.

Good points, Lincoln Mitchell. Might a “good and dedicated father and grandfather” in fact be a sociopath because of how he once transported the family pet on vacation? I look forward to seeing this important question explored at length in the media’s campaign coverage this summer. Oh, by the way — we just passed $5 trillion in new debt accumulated since Obama was sworn in. Enjoy the clip.

Obama claimed the dog meat was tough. Well, maybe just maybe, they didn’t know how to cook it over there in Indonesia.

First, you gut and skin your dog as soon as possible after you’ve killed it, same thing as any other animal. But, with dog, you’ve got to marinate the meat in the refrigerator for at least 48 hours, in an olive oil and 10W30 motor oil equal mix, and a hand-rubbing of garlic, sea salt, ground pepper. Then, you spread peanut butter all over the dog meat, and a sprinkle of ground clove.

TXUS on April 18, 2012 at 11:08 PM

10W30 – there’s the problem. Hard to find in Indonesia. They use your standard 4-cycle engine oil.

BobMbx on April 19, 2012 at 12:09 AM

While that does tend to tenderize the meat, and why road kill is especially tasty though possibly contamiated, it just doesn’t rise to the level of the taste of your own dog, freshly killed and properly marinated and cooked.

Sharke on April 19, 2012 at 12:56 AM

Posted this earlier at MM and decided to share it here, with a few minor tweaks, as my two cents worth to the doggone conclusion of this insane doggy caper. This dog thing has been a laff-a-thon right through twitchy.com and across the internet. In honor of dogs everywhere, I present this dog-cliché-ridden tome.

While Obarky continues to dog the Republicans, his campaign bird dogs will be spinning this for the dumbmasses to support him as the underdog.

He does fit all the idiomatic definitions of dog: a poor performer, poor quality, a chauvinistic male, a morally reprehensible person, a lazy slacker.

He doesn’t work like a dog and only he thinks he’s the big dog but he’s just been dogging it for 4 years, like he’s been dogging us for 4 years, while the country has gone to the dogs, and he can’t figure out why he’s in the dog house.

He wanted to be top dog so he could live the easy dog’s life while he meets the dog-leg left or dog-leg right on the golf course, and most days he’s meaner than a junk yard dog.

In his dog eat dog administration, the tail’s wagging the dog, that is when it’s not running the dog’n’pony show, and you definitely can’t teach Dem old dogs any new tricks.

This barking dog never bites, is always barking up the wrong tree and let’s face it–his bark is worse than his bite. He’s a dog-faced liar, crooked as a dog’s hind leg, and his policies are worse than dog breath.

He spends like a blind dog in a meat market, keeps chewing on the rich like a dog with a bone, and he clings to his positions like the dog with a death grip on that bone. Pretends he’s throwing us a bone every now and then but he’s really throwing the right and some of his own people to the dogs.

While Moochy is always telling us to eat food that tastes like dog (ask Baraka, he knows!), she’s over there puttin’ on the dog and lookin’ like a dog’s dinner with her fancy designer clothes.

We have a bone to pick cuz he’s been screwing the pooch from day one and we’re all just dog-tired of hearing him incessantly telling us that the dog ate his homework. We’re looking forward to November bcuz we know every dog has his day and we’re going to have ours when we send him off like a dog with his tail between his legs.

Just remember, if you lie down with dogs, you’ll get up with fleas and his campaign geniuses shouldda just let them sleeping dogs lie.

My final advice to Obarky is: if you can’t run with the big dogs–and little puppy Barack you can’t–just stay on the porch.

Idea for a Paul Shanklin parody:

I kissed a girl ate a dog (and I liked it)

Further, I wonder if Obama has an alibi for when Bill Clinton’s dog, Buddy, was killed.

Left Coast Right Mind on April 19, 2012 at 2:19 AM

For many voters, treating a dog this way is unimaginable and could only be done by somebody who has a problem empathizing with others.

Oh, I thought this was about Obamas’s demands to slaughter a fully born, fully alive, baby after it escaped the horrors of the abortion chamber. Heck, they voted for him anyway -but, had they known he was real evil and allowed his dog to ride up on the roof…why a riot wouls have ensued and he wouldn’t have won one even Chicago. Even the new black panthers couldn’t stomoche mistreationg a dog like that..well, does Michael Vicks bekong to that group?

Why Mitt Romney?
At Least he’s not a dog-eating communist.

Barry probably never ate dog meat. As William Ayers was ghost-writing “Dreams For My Father,” he probably tossed in the dog story to make O sound a bit more exotic. Of course, that puts Barry in a bind. He either has to allow people to think he ate dog meat, or he has to admit that his BTF (best terrorist friend) Billy Ayers wrote his book! He’ll choose the former.

Colony14 on April 19, 2012 at 5:20 PM

For many voters, treating a dog voting for Obama this way is unimaginable and could only be done by somebody who has a problem empathizing with others as their jobs and futures are destroyed by his devastating economic policies.

doesn’t it seem weird that a 10yo American kid would be offered dog and actually EAT it?

crosspatch on April 18, 2012 at 11:47 PM

Yes. Absolutely. 10 year olds don’t eat Gerber’s Toddler Dog…and 10 year olds have a very discerning palet. Peas look like vomit, therefore, peas may not appear on the same table with eatable food, like pizza. 7 year olds are worse.

It’s about this time when my kids actually took the top off a Macdonald’s hamburger and got a close look at what they’d been eating. We never went to Macdonlds again (thank you, God!) No prize was worth the mystery meat.
