Grasping at Straws: NYT and WaPo believe Scott Walker is disqualified from being president since he’s allergic to dogs

This is the kind of “throw it against the wall to see if it sticks” analysis offered by two of the Left’s pillars of journalism. Meanwhile Hillary Clinton gets to play by her own rules deleting government emails on her own private server in violation of Federal law. And the New York Times and Washington Post srites about Scott Walker’s dog allergies.

Washington Post reports Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, while currently polling well as a potential Republican presidential candidate, has a problem.

He can’t deal with dog dander. And if recent coverage by the New York Times is any indication, American voters might be allergic to presidential candidates who do not own dogs.

As it turns out, there is some relevant political science research on the voting behavior of dog owners. My study, conducted with Dan Lewis of Siena College, should put Walker at ease: There are few costs to running a canine-less campaign.

While political observers have often noted the prominence of presidential pets, especially during times of crisis, the 2008 presidential election provided an important test for the alleged political power of the pooch.
