In Pennsylvania, Democrat Senate candidate Joe Sestak likens the mess in Washington to dog poop:
Now thatâ€™s somebody I could really get behind — especially if itâ€™s real dog poop in the bags.
This commercial says Sestakâ€™s a guy whoâ€™s going to do something about all the sh*t going on in Washington. Nevermind that he spent the last four years serving in the House; thatâ€™s the sort ofÂ stuff that ruins a good metaphor.
Sestakâ€™s spot may hit the mark, but Iâ€™ve gotta confess, one has to wonder about Belle. I donâ€™t share my dog Maddyâ€™s contempt for fluffy white pooches, but, well… it just may not send the right message.
This is not to say that your dog is a reflection on your character. Just because I wouldnâ€™t want to be seen walking that thing around my neighborhood doesnâ€™t make it bad.
And isnâ€™t it unfair to judge a man by his dog? What are you going to do next, get down on Carl Paladino over his pit bull?
