Megan was going to write about this, but she is in the middle of a crazy week at school so she forwarded it to me. It is from the Baltimore Sun blog on dogs "Mutts" and it a section called, "If candidates were dogs."
Ron Paul wins Winnie's vote - he is a Corgi. Hillary Clinton is Labradoodle, Barack Obama is a Great Dane, John McCain is a Pug, Mitt Romney is a Smooth Fox Terrier (awesome) and Mike Huckabee is a Beagle. Click the link for the entire list.
Personally, I think Mike Gravel is off, and while McCain does look like a pug I don't think the description fits. People on-line said he was a pit-bull ('because he is so tough!') but that doesn't fit either. He is not a very aggressive partisan fighter and quite aloof to many in his party. He is not very loyal to his party and enjoys his maverick status...
Wait a minute, I think I got it! It explains everything. Why do republicans distrust him even though he has a normally conservative voting record? Why can't the establishment get behind him?
It is because John McCain isn't even a dog, he is a cat!
