It's all about change.

A new candidate has joined the race! Loki Weasel today announced his intention to run for president, along with his long time associate, Lux Ferret.

Loki's stance on foreign policy might be a bit shaky, but that's just because he doesn't get out of the house much. His running mate Lux has strong views on education and national health care, so she'll get the job done. And as for hot button issues like illegal immigration, you know they'll be on top of things. They have experience in that regard, as so many of their bretheren live illegally in New York City and the state of California.

"Fluffy bedding, fresh kibble and clean drinking water are our top priorities," states Lux. "No one should go without the simple necessities in life. A safe place to sleep and food to eat should not be luxuries, but available to all." The candidates also are keen to make basic health care more accessible. "Loki and I both know first hand how devistating it can be to face health problems with inadequate or no insurance coverage, so we will work hard to devise the best possible plan for all, large or small."

"Let's get the rats out of office," says Loki, harkening back to the days when ferrets were highly regarded as being tough on crime, especially in erradicating vermin. "We want to clean up the government, and will work from the bottom up to ferret out those who have been corrupted by lobbyists, special interest groups and corporations."

Outspoken Dooker of the House, Boomer Rang, has thrown his support behind these two stalwart advocates of equality. "I've known them a long time, and I can honestly say Loki will put corrupt officials where they belong--on their knees. As for Lux, I know for a fact she won't take sh*t from anyone. Some may call her a shrew, but she works hard to stand up for what she believes is right."

I would vote for a Ferret sooner than I would a Commie weasel. :-)

Loki's a natural born leader. He's twice the size of Lux and Boomer, so he's definitely an alpha male. On the other hand, Lux is your typical female ferret, which is to say, the brains behind the brawn.

And Boomer's just my sweetheart. He's the nicest ferret you'll ever meet. Never bites! He'd rather curl up in a warm lap and go to sleep.

Fred the Cat said he would like to meet with them in private before he can endorse them. He wants to talk about getting a job in the "getting rid of the rats" dept.

There were a few in-jokes there, for instance, Boomer Rang is Boomerang because if you throw him, he will come back (he's super loving though, so it's all good. And no, I didn't really throw him so much as push him off my bed so I could get more sleep the day after I adopted him from the shelter).

"Dook" is the sound a happy ferret makes. When they do the Weasel War Dance (look it up on YouTube!) they chirp or dook and I love it.
