Hello everyone. I'm Wolf Blitzer. And you're in the Situation Room.
The Blogosphere has been buzzing ever since last week's announcement of the Cat Ruler Of The World Election. Five cats from across the country and even one moggie from across the pond are in a rabid race to rule the world. This first-ever Campaign For A Cause Contest, organized by celebrity cats Zee & Zoey, has turned into an internet sensation, boasting lavish prizes for readers and shelters alike.
|The Sensational Six. Cat-tidates for Cat Ruler of the World Campaign For A Cause Contest.|
Today we turn our attention to the first cat-idate debate.
The Controversial Topic: NAPS
With me today is one of the six cat-idates, Katie. Katie is charming, witty and has a unique ability to connect with... does this say DOGS?
Katie has agreed to defend her position right here in the Situation Room. She joins us via satellite from her Campaign Headquarters Townhouse.
WOLF: Hello Katie, thank you so much for joining us today.
KATIE: Wolf, you look like dog. This is not what we agreed to. Where's John King?
WOLF: Katie, election officials announced earlier today that all six cat-tidates have aligned on the cat versus dog debate. Everyone finally agrees that cats are smarter, better looking and far more equipped to rule the world. Today's debate topic is now "Naps."
KATIE: Fine. As long as we're clear on who's smarter and better looking. So where's John King?
WOLF: John is busy playing with his magic map. Can we get started, Katie?
KATIE: Sorry Wolf, I was sharpening my claws.
WOLF: Katie, how do you respond to critics who would say that it is impossible to rule the world with any credibility if you nap over 16 hours a day?
KATIE: Wolf, that is an excellent question. I say, how can you NOT trust a world leader who knows the key to success, happiness and world domination is a well-planned nap? Just look for example, at the great nappers of our time: 50 cent, Eminem, Ice Cube...
WOLF: Katie, those are rappers, not nappers.
KATIE: Fine. How does this grab you? Thomas Edison, Leonardo DaVinci, John F. Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt. Some of the greatest minds and leaders of our time. All nappers. I read it on Huffington Post, so you KNOW it's true. Well guess what? I'm certain that each of these great nappers didn't just stumble onto the whole napping thing on their own. They COPIED it. And they didn't copy it from their Uncle Fred or their dog Fido, they copied it from a CAT. Ok, I didn't read that on Huffington Post, but I'm sure it's gotta be true.
WOLF: Those are some pretty impressive names you're dropping, Katie. But what about you?
KATIE: Well Wolf, how good of a napper are YOU? Can you do the grocery shopping, cook the dinner and clean the dishes all while you're napping?
KATIE: Can you earn a salary, pay your mortgage and fix the garbage disposal all while your napping?
KATIE: Can you manage an award winning blog, make cat videos, and Photoshop your way out of a corner?
WOLF: KATIE, this interview is not about me--
KATIE: Nor should it be, because you're a DOG. And as you know, Wolf, cats are way more interesting.
WOLF: Ok Katie. I think we get the message. Any parting comments?
KATIE: Wolf, Cat's are masters of human manipulation and control. Everything MY humans do, every single day, is all for me. Can I help it if I'm able to accomplish all this and still nap over 16 hours a day? Don't judge me. Vote for me.
Don't forget to visit Zee & Zoey to see all-cat debate AND enter to win some fabulous prizes! Official voting begins on September 11 and you only get ONE vote, so choose wisely. (fyi...Wisely = Katie)
