For da puppies

…and da kitties.

The Humane Society has made its first-ever endorsement of a candidate in a presidential election. And the winner is…

Obama-puppy

I admit it. I am only posting about this so I could include a picture of Obama holding a puppy. Does it get any freakin cuter than that?

(The dog in question is Baby, a former puppy-mill inmate who had to have her leg amputated after contracting an infection because of the cramped, unsanitary conditions she was forced to live in. Then her pained whimpering started to annoy the puppy mill owners and they had her vocal chords cut. Baby is now a traveling ambassador for anti-puppy mill education campaigns.)

Get the skinny on Obama and McCain's respective animal-rights positions (or lack thereof) here. (One big fat guess what the Humane Society thinks of Wolfchopper Palin.)

    Well I’m happy to hear that. One more reason to vote Obama…McCain/Palin hates puppies. How can you vote for someone who doesn’t like puppies?

    So I posted that link to the article on my myspace page. The majority of my friends in the Orlando acting and artist community are mainly Obama/Biden supporters and thought they’d like the article.

    I’m not so sure this photo does much for him. Isn’t that poodle?
    Oh well, at least he’s not gunning down wild animals from airplanes…

    She just gets worse and worse by the day, doesn’t she? Pretty sad to be trashed by the Humane Society of all groups.
    Thanks for posting 🙂

    I don’t think that’s Obama. The guy in the photo is twenty pounds heavier AND his ears don’t stick out enough.

  6. A quick google search shows that Obama is NOT endorsed by the American Humane Society, but rather the Humane Society Legislative Fund — a lobby group out of Washington. I feel the need to clarify as the text of this post is rather vague.
    The Humane Society Legislative Fund organization is NOT politically neutral as they openly state their ENEMIES include the American Farm Bureau, the National Pork Producers Council, Safari Club International, and Ringling Bros.
    Here’s the link to their site: http://www.fund.org/index.html
    And here’s the REAL Human Society page: http://www.americanhumane.org/site/PageServer

    Dear Justhavetosay:
    From the HSLF’s own Web site: “The Humane Society Legislative Fund is a social welfare organization incorporated under section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code and formed in 2004 as a separate lobbying affiliate of The Humane Society of the United States.” As a quick Google (note cap) search makes clear, when followed by a bit of actual reading.
    And yeah, it’s Obama. The pic was taken for a specific book, as the link I provided makes clear.

    Hee, Lynn, thanks for the link. Next time, though, would you mind keeping your cranky anonymommenters at YOUR site?
