Apparently, Obama’s Dreams of My Father contains a passage about Obama being fed dog meat as a small child. McCain, in honor of Mitt Romney’s visit to Arizona, joked that his son’s dog, Apollo, is not on the menu. Not sure if the AP photographer was clued in on the Obama tie-in or just took the delectable opportunity to juxtapose Mac with Apollo and tongue, but the hostility is vintage McCain (and, a taste of the chow from that off-the-rails and over-caffeinated “Straight Talk Express”).
(credit: Matt York/AP caption: Apollo is not the other white meat, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) jabs President Obama. The dog belongs to McCain’s son, Jimmy.)
