Noted canine pen pal to the stars, Weasel McPuppy, formally endorsed Presidential candidate Barack Obama in a sparsely attended press conference Wednesday. "I can stay silent no longer," Ms. McPuppy said, "Senator Obama has the intelligence, temperament, and common sense we so desperately need in our next President."
Although Weasel McPuppy stated that she did not dislike Senator Hillary Clinton, she did express dismay at Clinton's recent "fear-based" attacks on her rival. "It isn't nice to be scary," McPuppy noted.
In a show of solidarity with Senator Obama, Weasel pledged to adopt the middle name of "Hussein" throughout the remainder of the campaign. "The Internet conspiracies surrounding Senator Obama are ridiculous," McPuppy went on to say. "If Al-Qaeda wanted to plant a sleeper agent in the U.S., they wouldn't use someone with a conspicuous name like Barack Obama. If you ask me, I'd be more concerned about Mitt Romney."
