Kick out the humans: Cat running for Senate
NEW YORK (AFP) - Hank, a cat running for the United States (US) Senate, bared his claws on Wednesday with a radical proposal for improving America's unpopular Congress: get rid of the humans.
"It's OK to make a change. It's OK to vote the humans out," a campaign video released by the feline politico says.
Most media coverage of the Senate race in Virginia focuses on Republican former governor George Allen and Democratic nominee Tim Kaine, another former governor and ally of President Barack Obama.
But Hank is not one to whinge about media bias. He writes on www.hankforsenate.com that his traditional American self-reliance is the way forward.
