Cat places third in Virginia Senate race

The battle for the U.S. Senate between Tim Kaine and George Allen in Virginia may have been settled in the litter box instead of the ballot box if the tightly contested election had come down to about 6,000 votes given to a cat.

Itís entirely possible that third-place finisher in Virginia is Hank the Cat, a Maine Coon who ran on a pro-feline, job-creation platform.

In the current online results, Kaine is ahead of Allen by about 184,000 votes as of Thursday morning. The race was expected to be very close, and it was part of a record spending spree in the state that also featured a tight race between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.

But an examination of the official voting ballot online shows that there apparently wasnít a candidate from a known third party listed on the ballot below Kaine and Allen, unlike past years. There also isnít a third-party candidate listed on the election board website among its election results.

1. cats would be an improvement over any number of candidates.

for quite a few years, one of the mountain communities near here alternated the post of mayor between a cat and a dog--the community was quite happy with their mayor each time.

2. Yeah, that's what we need! Kaine win over Allen by about 175,000 votes.

Just close enough for the Repugs to see that they could have won this race, but they ran racist Allen. I hope they run him in the future.
