Penelope for VP. Perhaps possibly?…
It is a dark and stormy Tuesday morning. Penelope Kitten is depressed.
Cynthia walks in to the room. She is startled to find Penelope sighing instead of squeaking.
Cynthia: Oh no! Penelope! What’s the matter?
penelope kitten (sighing): i’m blue.
Cynthia: Ahhhh… why?
penelope kitten: been watching the news.
Cynthia: Uh oh.
penelope kitten: we’re all gonna lose.
Just then Marcy pokes her head out from under the couch.
Marcy: Not only is she depressed, she’s rhyming nonstop. She’s driving me crazy.
penelope kitten: feelin’ so hazy.
Marcy (retreating back under the couch): Arghhhh.
penelope kitten: they all think us cats are lazy.
Cynthia: What are you talking about?
penelope kitten: that we’ve got no clout.
Marcy (from under the couch): She’s upset that Bernie Sanders hasn’t responded to her request to be his VP. She thinks she can help him change the world. And that a cute kitten as his running mate would be just the ticket for his ticket.
Cynthia: Ah… well… there’s still hope.
penelope kitten (sighing): nope. nope. nope.
Cynthia: Maybe Bernie needs some time to think it over and –
The phone rings.
Marcy races to answer it.
Marcy: Yeah what?
Okay. Fine. But just so you know, I’m voting for Hillary. Why? Because Hillary is tough. She’s super tough. She’s Teflon. She’s Teflon and steel and iron and polyester and wears a pantsuit better than anyone. Man, woman, or cat. What? Fine.
Bernie’s on the phone. He wants to talk to you.
penelope kitten: squeak!
Yay!! P-Kitty is feelin’ the Bern!!!! I think she would make a great VP for Bernie or Hillary. I love Bernie but I will vote for Hillary if she’s the nominee. Although Marcy might not be too happy if Penelope gets to be VP!
Marcy would be extremely upset if Penelope Kitten became VP. Don’t tell her but I also think Penelope would make a great Vice President!
Oh no! The suspense!!! What did Bernie say, Penelope?
I get emails from him but never a phone call. He keeps begging me for money like an unemployed boyfriend but it’s OK because I love him no matter what.
Penelope is not talking. Yet. I’m sure she’ll fill us in later.
OMG! Can’t wait to hear more antics of the Democratic Cat Sisters! With Marcy and Penelope on and/or by their sides, things are looking good for the candidates!
Our other cat, Scooter, is obviously voting for Trump though. Marcy and Penelope are planning on sitting on him in June when we hit the polls. It’s a good thing cats can’t vote, actually. Who knows who’d they’d really vote for. Themselves probably!
Penelope’s wildest dreams are coming true! Though I think Marcy’s no-nonsense grit would be a good pairing for Bernie as well. Plus, now I’m envisioning Marcy in a Hillary-esque pantsuit and oversized pearls.
I hear you on being frustrated with the news though. I hate accidentally stumbling on a trending story when I’m trying to focus on something else. Sometimes it derails my whole day and I start obsessing about all the negativity. Maybe cats should rule the world. Or dogs. There would be so much love! lol
I think having cats and dogs run the world is a fantastic idea! Or at least – dog and cat lovers! Oh – and now I am obsessed with finding a pantsuit for Marcy. LOL I probably wouldn’t survive getting her in to it though!
I Love love love these to DEMOCATS! See what I did there?
ahahahahaha! we love you!
xo and meow,
marcy + cynthia
