Are you tired of the same old Washington insiders who promise hope, change and a better economy and then bow to special interest groups the minute they set foot on Capitol Hill? Then you'll probably be interested in this frisky new senate candidate from Virginia.
A 9-year-old street cat, from Springfield, with a Web site, a Facebook page, a Twitter handle, and campaign advertisement, to be precise. His Senate run is founded on the issue of job creation.
Hank, a cat from Springfield, Va., is running for U.S. Senate against Tim Kaine and George Allen. Hank announced his candidacy earlier this month, and his promotional materials describe him as "a proud Independent" with "real world experience, a unique point of view, and limitless energy"…
The feline is vying for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. James Webb (D) this year…[George] Allen and [Tim] Kaine, former governors of Virginia, are the front-runners in what has so far been a contentious race.
Webb and Allen promise to bring jobs to Virginia, but who better to create shovel-ready jobs than a cat who needs his litter box shoveled out every other day? In addition to scooping, Hank will need workers to buy his Meow Mix, refresh his water bowl and scratch his fluffy tummy.
After all we've dealt with so far this election season, it's nice to finally find a politician who understands how to properly care for a pussy.
