Caucus Critters: Moondae Moppets: UnConventional Pawlitics!
Last week was dedicated to the Repurrblicans and Repuplicans because of their convention; and I was originally thinking to do an homage to the Democat convention this week, but I'm already tired of them before they begin! So let's do something else. Let's be UnConventional!
But first, The Recommendations:
•Our intent is to create a safe place to relax and play; please use common sense and have fun.
•Share any and all pootie/woozle/furry/feathery/leathery photos or issues that you would like.
•When it comes to problems, we may just have someone with experience who can help.
•If you would like a pic from the posts, please ask the poster. He/she may have a copyright to those pics. Many thanks.
•We love critters, so any/all photos that encourage human violence against an animal will be frowned upon and considered out of bounds!
We'z a diverse group!
So what do we mean by UnConventional Pawlitics? Well, there's Duke:
Duke, Mayor of Cormorant, MN. Srsly.
There's Lucy Lou Kayser:
Lucy Lou, Mayor of Rabbit Hash, KY. Yes, srsly!
Lucy Lou is currently running for President on the Indepawdent Party ticket. “I wake up every single day of my life with one single thought and purpose in life: What can I do for my humans today?” she said. “How many humans do you know with that quality?” And don't forget, she is "fully vetted". Ha!
Okay, not srsly Presidential. They have filed papers with the FEC, but the bar to Presidential Candidacy is too high, even when you're defurmined. That hasn't stopped the FEC filings, though! Lucy Lou Kayser is running against, among others, Limberbutt McCubbins:
Political newcomer Limberbutt McCubbins of Louisville, KY
Sigh. They make me SO proud to be a Kentuckian. My hand is over my heart.
These two Presidential candidates held their first debate on the Today Show this past February! (Debate starts at about 1:30) (sorry about the ad, I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it)
Despite successful mayoral races, Lucy Lou seems to be the only dog running for President this year. There are, however, more cats:
There's Stump Rachiele of Warwick, Rhode Island, who filed after the Trump campaign moved into the same strip mall as their business:
Stump takes a position - or is he just getting comfortable?
And there's Sean Coonery - of Maine, of course! (Check out his gorgeous Web site!):
He even has an impurrsive resume!
No word at this time on debates with all candidates present, though. Will the mainstream media continue to give all the free air time to the hoomin but not the humane?
Is the election fixed? Are the candidates? Is that too personal a question?
In other UnConventional Pawlitical news, you've probably heard a lot about Tim Kaine in the past few days. You probably know that he was governor of Virginia and then a U.S. Senator. Maybe you think you know all you need to know about him. But did you know that for his Senate race, he had a pootie challenger? Yes, again, srsly!
Unfortunately, the canines formed a PAC with the hoomins, and Hank ended up coming in third:
Despite the attack ads, Hank ended up with 7000 votes anyway. Not too shabby for a tabby. Yes, Senator Kaine, you (and the Republican hoomin) lost 7000 votes to Hank the Cat!
(Note there are several additional good Hank the Cat ads on YouTube, https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=hank+the+cat!)
And finally, we must end with this campaign video: Because it's John Oliver and there's a pootie in it! And music! What better combo could there be than that?
