As her latest piece indicates, New York Times columnist Gail Collins is temperamentally incapable of mentioning Mitt Romney without adding “who once drove to Canada with the family dog strapped to the roof of his car.”
So Campaign Outsider has established the Seamus Sweepstakes, which challenges our splendid readers to guess the date on which Collins will write about Romney without mentioning his cartop pooch.
The prize: An all-expenses-paid lunch with the hardworking staff.
Enter early. Enter often.
The hardworking staff has sent the following note to Gail Collins herself:
Dear Ms. Collins:
The hardworking staff of Campaign Outsider are devoted readers of your New York Times column, and we often enjoy your references to Mitt Romney’s cartop canine history.
In that spirit, we have initiated the Seamus Sweepstakes™, an excellent contest that asks Campaign Outsider’s splendid readers to predict the date on which you will write about Romney without mentioning his rufftop pooch.
We’re sorry to say you are not eligible to win the contest’s valuable prize, but you certainly are welcome to mention it in your column.
The Hardworking Staff
