Earlier this week, Hank the cat announced his candidacy for Virginia's soon-to-be-vacant seat in the U.S. Senate. The fluffy Maine Coon from Fairfax County has his campaign promises focus on… economic stimulation? “Other politicians may talk about how difficult it is when there aren’t enough kibbles to go around,” Hank said, “but I’ve been there. I know what you’re going through. When I’m elected to the Senate, I’m going to work hard to make sure that there is milk in every bowl across this great nation.” Maybe other officials in the state can take a cue from this cat and stop concerning themselves with the contents of uteruses (uteri? utereux?). I cannot believe I just wrote that sentence.
But Hank has enemies. Today the Canines for a Feline-Free Tomorrow Super PAC released a mud-slinging ad, pointing out that Hank has never released his birth certificate nor denied rumors of catnip usage.
