Rick Scott’s Seamus

Looks like Gov. Fire Marshal Bill had no other use for his dog Reagan than as a prop.

Shortly after winning the GOP nomination in 2010, Rick Scott announced to the world through Facebook that his family had rescued a Labrador retriever.

And, with help from his Facebook friends, Scott gave it a name: Reagan.

Asked last week what had happened to the dog, Scott’s current and former communications directors refused to answer.

On Monday, the Times asked the governor to clear up the mystery.

“He was a rescue dog,” Scott said, “and he couldn’t be around anybody that was carrying anything, and so he wouldn’t get better.”

I guess prop is better than poop – but a lying scumbag is a lying scumbag, meaning that, even though that proffered excuse one that some people have had to give after a shelter pet proved to be more than they could handle (it does happen), if you believe Rick Scott then you probably also believed Mitt the Flip when he said that Seamus enjoyed being in his car-rooftop dog cage.

  1. They got the dog from a rescue society, had it for over a year, and then returned it? That poor dog. Dogs aren’t wired like people, they’re far more social, and taking away their “pack” is the most cruel fate they can experience.
