What are the downsides to electing cats (or dogs) to public offices? They're cute. They're likeable. They wouldn't insist on constantly pushing through idiotic legislation. They don't lie.

And here we have yet even more evidence of the sad consequences of the scourge that is student apathy.

I'm from Massachusetts - except for Scott Brown - we've been electing rats for years..unfortunately it appears we may do it again.

Mexican citizens should demand to see a birth certificate.

When I was a medical student (yes I was ARM), a first year medical student ran for USC Student Body President, which was mostly an undergrad popularity contest, on a platform that, if elected, he would abolish student government. He was elected.

Proving that nothing changes and inertia is resistant to reform, student government resumed after his term.

Companeros of the plow,
Tired and starved and dirty,
There's but one road to follow now,
So grab your .30-30

A dog as a politician would be great. You can beat him up and he would still come back to lick your hand and give the look of "How may I continue to serve you dear friend."

Hairballs. IF they're not fixed they spray everywhere and leave a nasty stench. They scratch up the furniture.
Still better than most congressmen.

Dogs would be pandering populists as politicians. The only thing they would have any spine about would be any anti-cat legislation.
