A cat named Hank has entered the Virginia Senate race, and he's making national headlines.
The latest development is the Allen Campaign's introduction of Cisco, cat coalition co-chair.
The Richmond SPCA offers to host a debate between Hank and Cisco. We're eagerly awaiting the Kaine campaign's announcement of its own feline representative. The debate will be moderated by Dumbledore Starr, who has overseen the Richmond SPCA administration and media relations for years.
Dumbledore intends to include the following topics for debate:
- The constitutionality of a requirement of an ultrasound before spay/neuter surgery
- Whether a bailout of the catnip producers was a wise move
- How to further reduce the cat unemployment rate and increase the amount of daily naptime
- Whether the tax rate on families with more than one cat should be reduced and whether the tax rate on families with dogs should be increased
We ask Hank and Cisco to give us their available dates as soon as possible. In the meantime, Dumbledore encourages you to like Hank for Senate on Facebook.
Update: We've gotten confirmation via Twitter that Hank will participate in the debate. (3:35 p.m, Feb. 29)
