PA Campaign Goes To The Dogs
The Gettysburg Times ^ | 25 OCT 2008 | AARON YOUNG

Posted on 10/26/2008 12:13:58 AM PDT by casinva

Joseph Giordano of Littlestown was startled and dismayed when he answered his phone on Oct. 16.

The caller, from a presidential campaign office, asked for “Sadie Giordano.”

“Sadie Giordano” is Joseph’s deceased dog.

“It baffles me,” Giordano, who referred to himself as a staunch conservative Republican, said. “According to the representative, Sadie is listed as a registered Democrat. They wanted to make sure she voted for Obama on Nov. 4.”

* About a week and a half before receiving the call, Giordano had to euthanize Sadie due to health reasons. He says he has no idea where the campaign office got Sadie’s name and his number.

I’ve got a feeling that a lot of pets, children and dead people will be receiving notifications next year that they’ve been selected for jury duty.

If my dog wanted to vote for Obama, I'd put it down, too....

It’s too bad he doesn’t live in the city of St. Louis. There, she could.

You really are not kidding?

You mean even with all the things coming out in the news, they actually asked if your dogs were registered?

Well, my Akita/Shiba Inu mix likes Sarah. He even has a McCain/Palin Bandanna he wears. Tojo's just told Santa Claus that he wants a McCain/Palin administration for Christmas...

It’s pretty scary what the DemocRATS have done to our “precious and sacred” vote. Our local station is running an ad that says your vote is your voice. Make it be heard. I really don’t know how I can when so many DemocRAT “voters” are screaming with their multiple votes.

I AM NOT KIDDING.

I gave them an incredibly snide answer....

We walked away, I thought about it....let’s say I turned them in. It would be my word against their lies.

Think about it...

LOL... I’m 42 and I never had a pet I did’nt like. I mean, if they could speak, theye’d be like ‘give me more attention / food etc.’. Pets (dead or not)have nothing to say about taxation, neither do a certain portion of the living human populous. To an Obama suporter/pollster/ACORN activist = Target rich environment. I can only hope that if voter fraud is found, it’ll be reported...

... your vote is your voice. Make it be heard. I really don’t know how I can ...

Don’t give up.

Good does triumph over evil. Sometimes we have the chance to see that. Sometimes it is not as obvious to us. Always, it is true.

So keep going, keeping believing, and keep voting. :)

And... you do have another use of your voice too. Use it to ask God to bring these evil things into the light so people can see them!

If Sadie is voting for Obama. She is barking up the wrong tree.

Seems a little drastic when all you have to do is lock him in his doghouse until Nov. 5th and throw out his absentee ballot.

Muhammad and the Dogs

Having a dog as a pet is prohibited in Islam.


I think Sadie may want to vote for McCain/Palin.
