Dogs are Democrats and Cats are Republicans?

American Kennel Club Announces Most Popular Dogs for 2010

It’s obvious our pets don’t have the capacity to be members of different political parties.  Unless there’s a “licking your own genitals” party.  They ALL believe in that.

But an editorial on the website Politico decided to try to figure out what political philosophy your pets have.  And they decided:  Dogs are Democrats . . . cats are Republicans.

Here’s why . . .

Dogs are communal . . . they sacrifice personal welfare for the benefit of the group . . . they like rules and regulations, and being told what to do . . . they don’t have a lot of initiative . . . and they like doing the same tricks for the same basic rewards.

They can be community organizers, like president Obama was, when they herd sheep.  And they get into selfless causes, like sniffing for bombs or leading the blind.

Cats are different.  Quote, “When cats are born, they believe they’re in a state of liberty, and from then on they are determined to keep it that way.”  They don’t take orders.  They don’t do tricks.  They want personal freedom.

They won’t listen to your commands as a matter of principle.  And when one kills a bird, it’s not to share with other cats who were less fortunate and couldn’t kill their own bird . . . they keep their own spoils.
