From the Cat Post Intelligencer:
Candidate Cheysuli is recommending that all voters in swing states should vote for Barak Obama. The statement comes after the Supreme Court issued it’s final verdict in whether, even if elected, a cat could not become president.
“While I deplore this specist ruling,” the candidate announced, “We must go on with our plans. For those in solidly blue states, the more votes I get the stronger case we will have in the future for a repeal of this horrible ruling. However, be that as it may, it appears I will be unable to be president of the United States, therefore I urge all my supporters in swing states to get out and VOTE BARAK!!!!”
“As citizens of a democracy it is not only our right but our responsibility to vote. Further, it is not only a right but a responsibility to speak out when we disagree with the government. The only candidate who seems to understand the latter part of that is Barak Obama and I hope you will join me in supporting his cause if you are in a swing state.”
I hope I have right to vote for you, Chey~! It’s kind of pity I am not living in your country~!
Gandalf and Grayson says
We had a feeling that something like this would happen. Well, you have 4 years to change the species rule, Chey!
OK Chey, you are our leader and we’ll do as you ask!
As a feline, I think I will cast my vote for you
The Island Cats says
We think it’s unfair that a cat can’t be elected. If only cats ruled the world…
We’re writing your name in on our ballot…
Helllllllooooooooo Miss Gemini
The Meezers says
oh wait, we can’t vote for you now? no, we tolded mommy to write your name in on the ballot here.
zevo hussein calamari says
YES WE CAN!!!!!!!! You are a most admirable poose to step aside for the good of all. You will be president in 2012.. i am so sure.
the pooses for peace
Um.. does this mean Nubi is unemployed now?
Artsy Catsy says
Chey, we could hardly keep from writing your name in, but we did as you asked and voted early for Obama. But we know you’re a shoo-in for 2012 … especially since you’ll probably be running against Sarah Palin. But a word of warning: she hates cats, so 2012 will probably be a really nasty campaign!
I wish we lived in a swing state. Our town is on the PA/NJ border but luckily our state is already swung the right way!
We live in a swing state and we’re voting for Obama! Well, we’re making Mommy and Grandma and Uncle Milty vote for Obama anyways. Oh wait, if we force them to vote some way or another, that’s like unAmericat, huh? Ok, we’ll let them vote however they wants. What Mommy? Yall are votin for him anyways? Oh good! Then we don’t gotta feels guilty. hehehe
Sanjee and the resta the Hotties
Pee Ess. Mini says that if we eat a lot and stand on the left side of the state maybe our weight will swing Virginia over to Obama. We’ll try that too.
He’s doing well in your state. If you eat ENOUGH and go far enough over to the left, perhaps you can take NC with you? I’m bringing ham…
Laila and Minchie says
Mom voted early one day last week and was very tempted to write in your name!
Chey, I’m sorry that those judge dudes made that ruling. Maybe when Obama seats his new judges 1) our rights won’t be taken away and 2) you can run next time.
Oh no Chey! I’m so sorry about this ruling. I bet he gives you a spot in the Cabinet for your support. The Toy Cabinet that is.
Dragonheart and Merlin says
We can’t believe the judges made such a silly ruling.
The Canadian elections were several weeks ago, and both of our humans sent their ballots in my mail, since they are here in Germany with us and not in Canada!
Jasper McKitten-Cat says
We live in a really red state, so Mom and Dad’s candidates usually lose, but they keep voting for them anyway. We’re just excited for tomorrow, just hate that Chey won’t be an option. Maybe down the road. Thanks for all you did to get the campaign energized! (If you are stuck in a red state, check out http://www.britebluedot.com/)
But I wanted to vote for you Chey!
Maggy & Zoey, Zoolatry says
They say the losers fade into obscurity… but NEVER you! By the way, after the voting debacles in Florida some four and eight years ago… we found some “old machines” in a dumpster. They have been specifically revitalized by Diebold and work well for paws-without-thumbs. The only thing on the ballot on these machines is Chey & Derby…
whatcha say furrriends… wanna vote on OUR machines?
My humans say they’re voting for Barack. Too bad about that rule about having to be human to serve as president. Personally, I think that some of the past occupants should have been forced to prove their humanity. The current one is sort of suspect, too, isn’t he?
Chey, what an honorable thing you are doing! I would have cast my vote for you, but as a Florida resident, now I will proudly vote for Obama. Chey in 2012!
Marilyn MonREOW says
Darn — we Ballicai really wanted to vote for you. But there’s always 2012!
Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.
As a cat in Canada,I would like to see you win.
However,Obama will do!!!!!!!!!
Chey in 2012!!!
Zippy, Sadie & Speedy says
Hmm, everyone we know is voting Obama (at least dat what dey say) since dey won’t allow yoo to be purresident (specist bastards). Of course, no one we know admitted to voting fur da shrub either and yet there he is screwing up this country and several others…
As Aussies, my beans can’t vote, but they’re watching the US elections with great interest and hoping for an Obama victory. Maybe he’ll make you Secretary of Feline Affairs, Chey? Here’s to a bright future!
I totally agree with you. I think we have a better chance to ask Obama to please change the laws so that cats can run for an election. Chey for Prez in 2012!!!
You look like you mean business, Chey!
Cory Cat says
Well Chey, in my state we can vote early, and we already voted for you…too late to change our votes! Maybe you can get a cabinet post…(is that like a scratching post?)
Well that stinks. But then, Cats can’t vote either.
I am heartbroken. I was all set to vote for you, Chey, and now I can’t??? I even got my people to agree, VOTE FOR CHEY!
Lilly Lu says
I argree my mama said she voting obma but isay CHEY 2012 all the way
meowers from missouri says
becausa you, dear chey, obama has our votes, an’ momma an’ daddy’s, too!! you are as selfless as a kitty can be (which means yer already planning yer 2012 campaign!) 😉 an’ we’ll vote fur YOU then!
Pearl, Bert and Jake says
This is a travesty! We were all set to head to the polls with Mommy and cast our votes for you!
We’ll do as you request, but we’ll do it in protest!!!
Scooby, Shaggy & Scout says
Chey this is outrageous!
Perhaps at some point you can sit on Barack’s shoulder while he gives a speech or something. Like an inaguration speech.
Tybalt, Spooner & Shakey says
You can become mayor! A dog did it already!!
Mum and I are settling in to watch the results. If we win a state, maybe it should be like your chocolate points. Or GREEN!
Kelly Cat says
Very gracious of you, Chey, not to contest the Supreme Court ruling. It’s obvious that, despite your personal convictions, you are putting your country first.
Um, should I rephrase that…
If cats could vote you would have had 9 votes from us, Chey. You know that! But either we nor our humans could vote, so we were all hanging on the couch a front the television all night… and he did it, he can, he WON!!
