Cat Running for Senate: Vote Hank!

Cats seem to have a natural tendency to rule over households, so perhaps it’s not too surprising that one is trying to climb the ranks into the U.S. Senate.

Hank, from Springfield, Virginia, is a former street cat running against Virginia Govs. George Allen (R) and Rim Kaine (D). According to his Twitter account, he is a passionate supporter of privacy rights, protection of consumer data, and is dedicated to help his fellow felines by promising “milk in every bowl.”

Unlike many candidates, Hank has worked his way up from the very bottom — living on the streets, before being brought to “death row” in an animal shelter. According to his Facebook profile, “Hank is a refreshing candidate – energetic, inspiring, and real. Unlike so many others, he wasn’t born with a ‘silver spoon’ – but rather earned his success and his name through hard work. He knows what it’s like to have very little, and knows that with hard work and dedication anyone can seize the opportunities that this great nation presents all of us.”

Hank is not the only non-human political candidate. In his company are historical figures such as Molly the Dog and Morris the cat, both U.S. presidential candidates from 2008 and 1992, respectively.

Hank represents a competant free-willed adult mentality better than any other candidate. As a matter of fact there are very few competant free-willed adult mentalities on the Earth. Most everyone is beholden to some parental figure , real or imagined.
