Given Mitt Romney’s history with day trips, the campaign’s current promotion seems bizarre. The 29 June 2007 Boston Globe summarized the tale of an unfortunate 1983 cartop ride of Romney’s Irish Setter, Seamus:

…hours into the ride, Seamus apparently suffered diarrhea, which ran down the back window of the car. Romney’s sons, all under 14, howled in disgust. Romney pulled off the road into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, and they drove on to Ontario.

That may not sound like the sort of road trip you would enjoy — but now you have a chance to find out!
