  1. Oh, and here’s some fuel for the alpha-beta debate:Tagg didn’t get it back then, but now at age 37 he finally understands why his father has been willing to suspend his regimented ways when it comes to his wife. ”When they were dating,” Tagg says, ”he felt like she was way better than him, and he was really lucky to have this catch. He really genuinely still feels that way, thinks, ‘I’m so lucky I’ve got her.’ So he puts her on a pedestal.”Because he wouldn’t treat a woman like that just because she was his wife or anything.So let me get this straight: Date men who are worse than you, and they’ll treat you … better?

  2. What an astonishing inferiority complex Romney must have — he has to prove his superiority over his Irish Setter, he confines his kids on a twelve-hour car trip without any non-regimented bathroom breaks, but folds like a campaign pamphlet when his wife mentions that she has to pee because she flirted with some other guy while she was in college and hadn’t seen or spoken to him for nearly two years. How would President Romney demonstrate his manliness? Nothing good can come of it.

  3. This is the reason you can’t vote for him?The Associated Press described it this way: “Seamus expressed his discomfort with a diarrhea attack. When Romney’s eldest son, Tagg, and his four brothers complained about the brown runoff down the back windshield, their father quietly pulled the car over, borrowed a gas station hose and sprayed down both the dog and the kennel before returning to the road.”
