The Cat in the Hat to Announce He’s Running for President in 2016

There’s another third party candidate in the mix of 2016 presidential contenders: The Cat in the Hat! The famous cartoon kitty will announce his candidacy on Tuesday on the steps of the childhood home of his creator, Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. According to 22News,

Campaign signs promoting the Cat in the Hat candidacy have been turning up on some Springfield lawns alongside signs promoting more conventional candidates.

A banner spanning the front of the Geisel house in the Forest Park neighborhood as well as lawn signs urge voters to cast their ballot for the high-hatted feline:


The Cat’s first campaign rally will be held on Tuesday at the Springfield Museums, site of the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden and future home of the world’s first museum to honor Geisel. The event will feature music, acrobats, balloon sculpting and face painting. The Cat in the Hat, alongside his running mates, Thing 1 and Thing 2, kick off their campaign to coincide with publication of a new book to get children to understand why it’s important to get out and vote.

Will this unconventional candidate get your vote?

    Certainly nice to find this advanced CD Sampler; like the alttenare/demo versions. It appears Pink Floyd’s catalog is privately owned. Here, EMI licensed it and Capitol Records, LLC, manufactured it. I would expect, since Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs (MFSL) audiophile editions (CDs) sell for unheard of prices, that the remastering of this Sampler would be equal to or better than what MFSL accomplished, earlier on. I give it an 80 on the Stunning Sound Scale. The one I have was marketed to Best Buys stores.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
