Hello, I'm Wolf Blitzer and you're in the Situation Room.
Just today CNN has broken a shocking campaign scandal wide open. Sources reveal Katie, the Cat Ruler of the World Candidate from Minneapolis, has covered up a seemingly criminal past.
I'm here with John King, part of the best political team on the blogosphere. John, what can you tell us about this latest development in the Campaign For A Cause Contest?
JOHN KING: Wolf, these two photographs have been making the rounds in the Twitterverse. Notice the striking similarity between them. The photograph on the left we all recognize as Katie's official campaign poster. Team Katie has been tweeting this out to followers and supporters since the campaign began nearly three weeks ago.
JOHN KING: On the right, we see a mug shot tweeted by the Cat-Drudge Report. This certainly gives merit to rumors that Katie is hiding a secret and criminal past. It also illustrates what some would describe as reckless, even brazen behavior, using a doctored mug shot for official campaign propaganda.
WOLF: John, I can't quite make out the details on the mug shot.
JOHN KING: Wolf, the placard clearly shows the convicted cat's name as, KATIE CAT. Height 33", don't know if that's toes to ears or nose to tail. Date of birth, September 2005. The charge listed is SHOELACE TAMPERING. Although sources confirm that Katie has since been cleared of all charges, her reputation may still be suffering. Ancient history or not, there's no telling what this will do to her campaign.
WOLF: Thank you, John. CNN has contacted Team Katie, however due to perviously scheduled naps, no one has been available for comment. We will be watching this story very closely in the coming days.
We hope you're enjoying our political spin. There's more silliness on the horizon, in fact you never know what political landscape Katie might find herself in the middle of. We think laughter is food for the soul. Some may say even tastier than salmon. And certainly easier on the hips than chocolate.
But the message behind our mischief is not a laughing matter. Please help us help the amazing cats of Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary.

Hmmm, I thought Katie was cleared of those charges....ReplyDelete
Shoelaces? Mmm-hmm. Let me just say that I don't think Katie will be getting the MOUSE vote!ReplyDelete
Just sayin' - I'm all about facts, not litter flinging...

Nothing like a little scandal to spice up the campaign. :)ReplyDelete
Oh oh, it's the Chey scandal all over again! Will you be on the lamb too, sweetie?ReplyDelete
Don't let it get to you Katie. Those media types like to dig up dirt. We know you were cleared of all charges. With your strong platform no one will even notice this news thingy.ReplyDelete

I KNEW that Wolf Blitzer guy was really a wolf! I believe, Katie, if you put the emphasis on this, this whole little shoelace tampering business can be swept under the carpet, so to speak. Just focus the attention on that photo of him without his makeup on, okay? purrsReplyDelete
We knew it was just a matter of time before this campaign got really dirty!!ReplyDelete
MOL, laughter is the best medicine. Thanks for making us feel better today.ReplyDelete
Oh dear... this brings back unpleasant memories of the time I came back from vacation to find Zoey in a criminal line-up while I was gone... and it had something to do with Katie...ReplyDelete
Even though the media is perfect and never makes mistakes or jumps to conclusions, we still remain neutral and will not judge until all the facts are presented and are sure everything will turn out just fine. Right, Katie??
I think Katie is always right!By the way girl...you are wonderful and I'm your fan! :)ReplyDelete
and good luck,
Luna and mammy Léia
Gasp! They're uncovering criminal records? I better get my mouthpiece on the blower. "Hello, Tuna? I may need your services. This campaign is getting dirty and I'm wearing white today."ReplyDelete

mud slinging and lies,can't believe reporters they always lieReplyDelete
There is truth in jest. That image of Katie as a criminal does not inspire confidence. Where is your damage control publicist? But then again all publicity is good publicity :-0ReplyDelete
FaRADaY: *raises paw* and then there was the time--" *mmmfp-!*ReplyDelete
Allie: *smiles sweetly to camera while holding struggling Faraday's mouth shut* What my DEAR BROTHER was about to say was there's NO TIME to dig up ridiculous allegations when we have such a SERIOUS campaign on our paws.
Maxwell: But... *mmmpfff!*
Allie: *stuffs back paw in Maxwell's mouth while artfully balancing on one dainty paw*
Why would the press be digging up OLD, hackneyed news (B-O-R-I-N-G) when there's so much more IMPORTANT things to talk about, such as Katie's FAB sense of style? Oh, and Blind Cat Rescue, too...?
I told you that press corp was sniffing around dear Katie!ReplyDelete
Oh! The media will stop at nothing to create drama. Katie was cleared of those charges!ReplyDelete
Thoose reporters that ALWAYS shall find skelletons in efurrybodys wardrobe !
Coach says, napping is good and do that cat thing, the one where you just ignore everyone?!ReplyDelete
You go girl!
I love scandal!!ReplyDelete
We say "YOU'VE BEEN FRAMED" and defamed. Time to defend your name.
Katie....NO!! I agree, you must be cleared!!ReplyDelete
PS. Wow--I'm surprised toothat Wolf Blitzer REALLY is a wolf
Shoelace tampering? It could have been so much worse!ReplyDelete
Wonder what else they are going to dig up from your pastReplyDelete
Benny & Lily

Your Doggie pal Snoopy :)
Ok I initially thought John King was a mouse. MY MISTAKE! I'm still very sleeping from yesterday's trance.ReplyDelete
