Video: Adorable Hank The Cat Running For Senate In Virginia
"A 9-year-old Virginia cat`s Web site says his bid for the U.S. Senate is aimed at creating jobs and improving living conditions.
Hank the cat, whose campaign is outlined at HankforSenate.com, is a Springfield native who was born to a single mother on the streets and earned everything he has `through hard work,` WRC-TV, Washington, reported Wednesday.
We`ve had some real dogs in the Senate, from both parties -- it`s time to give a cat a chance.
Hank is the purr-fect candidate, with his down-to-earth name he has a blue-collar appeal.
Like most felines Hank has a laissez faire attitude, he would go with the flow -- the opposite of Tea Party Republicans who are responsible for the gridlock in Congress.
But Hank isn`t a pussy ... cat, he will stand tall for the ideals that made this country great: Freedom, Equality, and a clean litter box.
Hank`s tenure in the Senate wouldn`t be a catastrophe, although i admit that he might be bribed with a morsel of tuna fish.
If you live in Virginia, vote for Hank!
