John Kerry - Friend to Hamsters

Well, that's it. We must now support Kerry wholeheartedly. He saves hamsters. Check out the following passage from Alexandra Kelly's speech last night:

"Let me just begin with one July day when Vanessa and I were kids. It's a silly story, but it's true, and it's one of my favorite memories of my father. We were standing on a dock waiting for a boat to take us on a summer trip. Vanessa, the scientist, had packed all her animals including her favorite hamster. Our overzealous golden retriever got tangled in his leash and knocked the hamster cage off the dock. We watched as Licorice, the unlucky hamster bubbled down to a watery doom. That might have been the end of the story. But my dad jumped in, grabbed an oar, fished the cage from the water, hunched over the soggy hamster and began to administer CPR. There were some reports of mouth-to-mouth, but, I admit that's probably a trick of memory. He was never quite right after that, but Licorice lived. Like I said, it may sound silly. We still laugh about it today. But, to us it was serious and that's what mattered to my father."

The man saves hamsters. What more do you need to know? I also noticed that various members of the campaign - including Kerry himself at one point - were wearing LiveStrong wristbands in support of the Lance Armstrong Foundation. More about that here.

Hamster support, and Armstrong support. What more could you want from a candidate?
