Bag’s Take-Away:
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”).

Bag’s Take-Away:
Introducing: Louk, the Greek Riot Dog! Riots and uprisings and demonstrations have become so embedded in cultural/political imagery, we have anthropomorphized the event.  What’s next, “Squiggles, the Flood Trout”? … because water and uprisings seem to be the 2011 themes.

(FP runs a slideshow retrospective of Louk at various riots throughout the years.)
