Just Like Bil Keane on the Family Circus, Bernard will be taking a short leave of absence and this edition of Logos of the Bogus will be written by me, his adoptive son, Shadow, age 10. ( you humans have to have pointed out that I am a cat). What I would like to discuss are some of the lessons that I have learned by watching people discuss the upcoming election. It has taken me a while to type this out because I do not have an index finger and I don't understand your alphabets. The first one goes ABCD, and now I have to work on one that goes QWERT.
Let me start out by saying that my opinions are purely only my own. And, I won't be voting. It's not only because I'm not 18, it's just that I do not want any responsibility for saying that I put these people into office--On either side. The upcoming wave of socialism does not scare me at all. I have no income, I pay no taxes. I pay no rent, but I always get a free meal. And it's not always just mice. Who would not like this deal? It looks like socialism is the way to go. The last eight years were good for me. I hope the next four are exactly the same.
What is all this talk about $150,000 for clothes? The Obama campaign keeps saying that McCain is avoiding the issues by bringing up trivial matters. Now there is all this discussion about Sarah Palin's clothes. It's all distracting. Nobody needs clothes. I have never had any other than my fur coat and it's up to me to keep it clean.
These political advertisements are also giving me a headache. They all sound the same. I don't think they would make sense even if I could understand the language. It reminds me of the neighborhood dogs. They just keep yelping and yelping, nobody knows what they're saying, and it's doing little to protect the American dream. Some of those dogs aren't even doing anything to help themselves. I've looked out the window watching dogs takin thier walks. It's disgusting. They have staff that have to be led around on a leash. Then their staff stops their leader while they bend down to pick up the dog end. I can't figure it out. Like politicians, they have a loud bark but their bite ain't got no teeth. And they all act neutered.
Well, what will be the big outcome for you humans? After November 4, we should all be as relieved as if we have all coughed up a huge hairball. But, I'm just an eternal optimist. My contribution will be in the litter box, not the ballot box. Neither one will make a difference for me. However, I know that if you disagree with me it will be based on the color of my fur. And that makes you a racist.
