Edinburgh takes note of Rove’s Scottie dissing

Over in Scotland, they’re discussing the dissing of White House first dog, Barney, by outgoing deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, who recently referred to the Scottish Terrier as a lump.

Coming to Barney’s defence on an interview broadcast on National Public Radio,the White House deputy press secretary, Dana Perino, said: “Barney’s kind of stand-offish, but he’s got personality. He’s got a little bit of sass, but he doesn’t let people get too close to him.”

The Herald of Edinburgh replied:”Sounds pretty Scottish to us.”
