The Greatest Land of All," you can watch it by clicking on the link that I have so thoughtfully provided. Part of Hank's platform is to avoid running any negative ads, and yet he has been savagely attacked by a group called Canines for a Feline-Free Tomorrow, who produced an ad called "Hank for Senate? No Way."
“In this time of austerity, of threats to families’ livelihoods and to our civil liberties, it is essential that we choose the right leader. Our situation is too dire to risk placing this important job in the wrong paws, and that is why I have decided to run for US Senate for the great Commonwealth of Virginia. If I had to sum up my feelings for Virginia’s future, I would have to say: Meow.”
The biggest hurdle that Hank will have to leap over is the fact that current laws prohibit animals from serving in Congress. Still, if a dog can serve as the mayor of a town in Kentucky, surely people will see that it makes just as much sense for a cat to occupy a seat in the Senate -- preferably one with a nice, soft cushion.
I only wish I lived in Virginia so that I could vote for Hank personally (or felinely, as the case may be). But maybe I will just have to run for office sometime here in my own fine state of Missouri!
Oh, and before I quit writing, Mom said I should tell you that Jason came home from the hospital yesterday. He's still not feeling all that great, which I can tell because he mostly wants to sleep. Of course, all cats mostly want to sleep, but Jason wants to sleep more than he, a normally energetic kitten, usually does. He has been eating his meals, though, and taking his medicine, so we hope he will feel all better very soon.
