Yes, the Obamas have a new puppy, another Portuguese water dog, and the White House website and the press corps are all atwitter over the news. I can’t really imagine why anyone would care, but some people do. Even less, though, can I imagine what the point was when Tucker Carlson’s insipid rag the Daily Caller felt the need to end an article about it with this line:
“A Portuguese Water Dog can range in cost wildly. On average, one will pay between $1,400 and $2,000. President Barack Obama has this breed of animal,” according to an answer on Ask.com.
With the addition of Sunny, the Obamas now have two black Portuguese water dogs.
The Obamas do not have any white dogs.
The article has no byline. I see why. Seriously, WTF?
