Poll: Pet owners prefer McCain over Obama
AP - Tue Jul 8, 6:00 AM ET

Okay, it seems that ever since Hillary suspended her campaing, things on the Presidential campaign trail have gotten pretty boring. When the pundits are reduced to polling pet owners to see which candidate they will support in November, and try to make this headline material, things must be getting quite pathetic in the news front.

I really think they should interview Scandal the Cat next. I bet he'd have an interesting perspective. Especially if you ask him about the gooshy food issue and how this will affect the price of oil.

"So, Mr. Scandal. What do you think of the current candidates for the Presidency of the United States?"

Are you talking to meow? says Scandal the Cat.

"Yes sir. Who do you think the American people should vote for in November?"

It depends. When am I getting my gooshy food? You know, it's past 9 p.m. and it's about *that* time.

"Well, I don't know about that but, but what do you think of the state of the economy and the climbing prices of oil?"

Where's my gooshy food you silly human?

"Do you think that we should change course in our policy in the Middle East?"

Scandal looks rather angry at this point. Obviously, these stupid humans don't know it is time for gooshy food. And if this particular one does not produce a can opener like, yesterday, his face is going to resemble a Hawaiian grass skirt pretty soon.

Groowwwrrrrr . . . growls Scandal menacingly.

The reporter, who is not as dumb as he seems, gets the hint and starts walking away from the cat . . .

"And as you see, Mr. Scandal the Cat has provided us with a valuable insight on the candidates, the price of oil, the conflict in the Middle East, and the state of the economy. More news at 11."

Wake me up when all of this is over.

Ah, the difference between cats and dogs. Kass chortled when she read your post aloud to me, which inspired me to ask the same questions of Sebastian, the Grand Old Greyhound.

"So, Mr. Symington-Smith[1]: What do you think of the current candidates for the Presidency of the United States?"

"Cookie?"

"Yes sir. Who do you think the American people should vote for in November?"

"Who's got a cookie?"

"Well, I don't know about that but, but what do you think of the state of the economy and the climbing prices of oil?"

"I don't like oil on my cookie."

"Do you think that we should change course in our policy in the Middle East?"

Sebastian looks rather confused at this point. "I say, I say, I say: look here, my dear fellow, what? What has all this rot to do with cookies? Hm? You're talking gibberish for those Oxbridge Johnnies at the Foreign Office; I merely question its applicability to the cookie motif. Now, out with it! Let there be cookies!"

Well, that's what happened in my mind, at any rate.

Hugs, Bob

[1] That's Sebastian's full name, you see. Sebastian Aloysius Symington-Smith (the last bit pronounced "Smythe"). If you've met him, you'll know why. ;-)
