The Republican National Convention will be protested by ... dogs. Yes, Dogs Against Romney is planning a Tampa rally Sunday, one day before the convention starts, The Hill reports. "Should we have a president that isn’t even qualified to adopt a pet?" asks the group's founder in a statement, referring to Romney's infamous transportation of family dog Seamus on the top of his car. "Dogs aren’t luggage, Mr. Romney. If this is how he treats a furry member of his own family, just think how this lap dog of Wall Street will treat middle-class families as president."

Best additional detail No. 1: Coinciding with the rally is the release of an iPhone and iPad game in which players can bust Seamus out of his crate. And No. 2: The group promises to have "adorable dogs on location." (And it'll likely be playing Devo's new song...)
