From the someplace in Maine Online Sentinel:
Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.
Wait a minute....they White House has issued a clarification. Bo Obama did not fly solo to the Obama's vacation site in Maine.
Clarification: Today's story about the arrival of the Obamas said the Obama's dog and one aide arrived on a small jet before the First Family, but there were other occupants on the plane, including several other staffers. The presidential party took two small jets to the Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton because the airport was too small to accommodate the president's usual jet.
Ah. They took TWO jets. The other jet was for the dog and some lackeys. That makes it all better.
In the meantime, keep an eye on your carbon emissions, double-fold your toilet paper, take your own canvas bag to the supermarket, and keep buying those inadequate spiral light bulbs. The Obamas have a lifestyle to maintain.
The picture of the biggest dog footprint that I could find came from here. And it's really from a cat. But it serves my purposes. Kinda like the carbon emissions panic serves the purposes of our lords and masters in government.
