My dog wants a recount, dumbass.

List seems awfully incomplete.

Oh, only the nice ones. Okay.

I really wasn't expecting Tuxedo Stan to be on that list.

Insert obligatory current politician reference to being an animal...

Considering our current political process is less organized than a monkey shiat-fight at the zoo, I can't see how most of the candidates could do worse.

That's nothing. For 6 years, Mexico had a Fox for president.

Not only nice, but incredibly nice. Should deserve a votie from someone, but contrary to past practise, this time I won't.

List fails without Clay Henry, the beer-drinking goat who was the mayor of Lajitas, Texas. You'd hand him a beer, he'd grab it and throw the whole thing back. It's all he did, all day. It's also the only reason to be in Lajitas. Also the main thing keeping the Lajitas general store in business, selling beer to give to Clay. 

They've been through 3 different "Clay Henries". Apparently the life of an alcoholic goat is not without limits, but there's no shortage of goats ready to step up and be commissioned as the new career alcoholic. I don't know if they, like, hold auditions or what.

Are you comparing politicians to dogs, subby?

FTFA: Man, the Romans get to everything first. Or do they? There are all kinds of rumors about Incitatus, the infamous Caligula's favorite horse. We're not sure whether Incitatus was made a Senator, was soon to become a consul when Caligula was killed, or was only a rumor created by Caligula's enemies.

IIRC from Tacitus, Incitatus didn't even belong to Caligula. Caligula was just a fan of the horse, which ran for his favorite racing team.

Suetonius was the source for the rumor that Caligula intended to stand the horse for public office. Suetonius was the ancient Roman equivalent of the National Enquirer -- some of the gossip, rumor and innuendo he printed turned out to be correct, but that wasn't really his purpose.

What about current candidates?

My cat has been a write-in against every unopposed candidate for years now. Nobody should be completely unopposed. Luckily, my cat has a human-sounding name, so no "lizard people" issues.

My husband is from Rabbit Hash KY, so I'm getting a kick.

To be fair I would vote for a dog over almost any current politician.

Thirded-ed-ed.

Hank seems like a laid back cat, and his owner/campaign manager is a smart guy.

I can tell you read the article.

I find myself wanting to vote for animals more than people. I wish Colonel Meow would hurry up and take over the world.

Egoy3k: I really wasn't expecting Tuxedo Stan to be on that list.


I wasn't either. He wasn't on the "official" ballot, and because the ballots are all in black, save for the names and circles to mark in, it made writing in his name a wee bit difficult. It couldn't be done online either.
