Mitt Romney and Clark Griswold on Pet Care

I can see it coming: The comparisons are going to be inevitable between the Romneys' family vacation to Maine and the Griswolds' family vacation to Wallyworld.But in the interest of accuracy, I must point out that this comparison is not entirely on point. in some respects, the more appropriate comparison is to the treatment ofthe Griswolds' late Aunt Edna (played by Imogene Coca).
