Dear Politicians, Please Exploit Your Family Dogs

The liberal, elitist media would like you to think that Barack Obama is the first ever dog-owning politician in history. Charles Beauregard "Bo" Hussein Kennedy-Obama (yes, we've made that joke today but we will continue to call him that until the Obama administration produces his birth certificate. Why are you hiding the birth certificate, Obama, why?) is cute and all, but surely there must be other cute, political dogs.

We went on an internet hunt for local politicians who may own dogs, so

we could post their pictures and you, the reader, could respond with

"awwwww." Well, either Florida politicians have a horrible anti-dog

streak, or they are not properly manipulating their family pets for

maximum political pay-off. For shame either way.

Here is the list of politicians that have not gone on the record as

public dog owners, at least in a way that is easily Google-able: Lincoln

Diaz-Balart, Mario Diaz Balart, Kendrick Meek, Dan Gelber, Charlie

Crist, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Alex Sink, Manny Diaz, and Carlos


We did find that Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has an "office dog" named Maya,

whom she recently shared an award from the Humane Society with. Jeb

Bush also had a dog while in office, a cute black lab named Marvin, who

died tragically, two days before Bush signed his momentous "doggy

dinning bill."

If anyone else has evidence of cute political dogs, please let us know. We'd call up the press offices of these people, but we're pretty sure we're on thin ice with at least half of them.
