Right-wingers just love the "Obama ate dogs!" meme. Here's why.

One: It's a simple "both sides do it" maneuver to counter the Romneys' deeply weird method of transporting the family pet.

"Sure, strapping a dog to the car roof may be cruel and bizarre, but golly, Obama ate dogs. So both sides have a "dog" problem!"

Two: It's yet another way to paint Obama as foreign, other, strange — un-American.

"What kind of decent, hard-working, God-fearing American would eat Lassie?"

Twofer!

Great job, Laura. You're consistently one of the best propagandists money can buy.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Muslims don't eat dogs. So...keep on trying kids!
