If the campaign is going to the dogs, Obama had better go puppy shopping.

Never mind soccer moms, security moms and the bitter working class.

This is a question for pet owners.

And John McCain is Best in Show.

The pet-owning public may have caught on to the fact that McCain, like George Washington and George W. Bush, shares his home with a number of pets - more than a dozen, in McCain's case. Democrat Barack Obama, by contrast, is petless.

Among pet-owners, McCain has clawed his way to a marginal advantage; 42 percent supporting the Republican, 37 percent the Democrat, according to the results of an AP-Yahoo News poll (remember, it was Jonathan Swift who brought us the Yahoos.)

Among the petless, the poll found, Obama is favored by a rather solid margin of 48 to 34 percent.

Interesting......and suspicious. Not a pet owner, eh?

His choice of pets will certainly not be a dog; he has to be P.C. so I would suggest that Obama gets a turkey to match his personality.

Who was the last petless candidate? We may be on to something here.

Nader doesn't seem like the type who would have a dog.

He owns a parrot, you know - someone to campaign to.

I went to a fund raiser at Nader's house. I asked him if his toilet paper was green and said "Fuck You! Fuck You Fuck You."

He said "No."

I said, "Oh geez, i musta wiped my ass on your parrot."

Old Joke. Really Old Joke.

He could always tap Bill as a combination pet and running mate to run against a McCain/Newt pair...

That eternal political animal Bubba got a dog, Buddie, since he thought the image of the big dog would enhance the Big Dog's image more than Socks, the cat.

And then poor Buddy was run over and they gave Socks to a friend.

I'd suggest a ferret since Obama is such a weasel but I don't want to insult my ferrets.

Maybe Obama could be the first president with a White House gecko. :)
