Dog owners, lovers of unquestioning devotion and blind obedience (and predominantly white), prefer John McCain over Barack Obama 43% to 34%. They must want a president who’ll doggedly maintain the disastrous Bush status quo until no one’s left.
Except for Dick Cheney. Using his free, taxpayer-paid healthcare, he’s rigged his heart so he’ll even outlast the Energizer Bunny.
To match Obama’s youthful friskiness, that old dog McCain does occasionally try new tricks, but they always seem to leave him clenching a tennis ball, looking for someone else to play fetch with. For example, when he thought he’d get treats, he rolled over for evangelicals he once thought were nut jobs.
McCain owns 4 dogs himself, so he’s used to being worshipped as leader of the pack and never questioned, no matter how dense or misguided he is. As a result, he has this 9-point lead among fellow owners of the world’s dimmest pets.
When you factor in cats (who outnumber dogs as pets by 13 million), McCain’s advantage over Obama shrinks to 3% (41% to 38%), even though McCain’s trying to cover all this bases with a black-and-white cat named (yawn) Oreo.
He probably has no idea Oreo’s a Democat who will never submit to being herded or brainwashed if his human wins the White House.
Obama has no pets because he says his kids have allergies, but he’s vowed to get a dog after the election, win or lose.
Big mistake, Obama. You’re obviously a cat person. Get one of our non-allergenic breeds and you won’t have to keep a poop-scoop in the Oval Office.
