I've finally figured it out. My dogs are Democrats. Consider the evidence, which I must say is overwhelming:
• They don't work -- they lay around all day, only getting up to bark at the occasional passers-by.
• I work all day to support them.
• I pay for their food and they eat what they want, when they want and -- if they don't like the food -- they bark at me.
• If they get sick, I pay for their health care.
• I provide their shelter and they live as comfortably as I do -- heck they even sleep on the foot of the bed during the winter so they can leech heat from me.
• And when they want to be otherwise entertained they just stand in front of me either bark or beg.
I'm telling you flat out: these dogs are Democrats just as certain as Michael Moore is a communist.
