“On the Road with Mitt & The Mutt”

Written by Marissa Maier on . Posted in NY Press Exclusive, Politics.

In time for tonight’s debate, and the election season, famed political satirists Bruce Kluger and David Slavin lampoons the infamous Romney family adventure in Dog on the Roof: On the road with Mitt and the Mutt. For the first time, Kluger and Slavin present the completely true—only mildly embellished—story of Seamus Romney, the Irish setter whose master, future presidential candidate Mitt Romney, plopped him atop the family station wagon for that notorious 1983 car trip. Read all about Seamus’ rooftop epiphanies on this journey from Mount Rushmore to the sacred temple of Salt Lake City.

Illustrated by Colleen Clapp, Dog on the Roof is an inside look at the man who would be president.

Both Fluger and Slavin started writing and performing satire for National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” in 2002, but their work has also appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune.
