Dog Catchers for McCain
Think the dueling staff announcements from McCain and Romney are getting a bit ridiculous? (Even Hotline is getting a bit jaded.) Well, this press release just crossed our transom...
Eighteen [Count 'em, Eighteen!] New Hampshire Dog Catchers Join Straight Talk America
ALEXANDRIA, VA -- Eighteen New Hampshire dog catchers will join Straight Talk America, forming a dog catchers' advisory council that will advise Senator McCain on their expertise in canine capture and other issues.
The group is led by Susan Alfred, President of the New Hampshire Association of Dog Catchers in 1992-93 and Bush 2000 supporter, who noted, "Imagine my surprise when I picked up the phone and, oh my, it was John McCain. We're just tickled pink that someone is finally noticing us!"
John Weaver, senior adviser to Straight Talk America, said this about this significant "get": "Their experience rounding up puppies and other stray animals is especially appropriate to lassoing Republicans to the polls in 2006. They will also be valued members of the team should Senator McCain make the ultimate decision."
Said Senator McCain, "In their capacity as dog catchers, these community leaders are influentials of the highest order. They are grizzled campaign veterans, eeking out election victories by the razor tight margins of 64 votes to 58, 33 to 31, and 19 to 18."
The announcement caps off a busy week for Straight Talk America, including the announcement of a Mainstream Media Advisory Committee led by Charlie Cook, Chuck Todd, and Mark Halperin, the rollout of sixty-four new state and regional auxiliaries of Political Consultants for McCain, and the recruitment of three Voters for McCain.
