Posted on 11/07/2016 11:16:58 AM PST by Nachum
As election day approaches at breakneck speed, many Americans find themselves on either side of what appears to be a gigantic chasm. On one side are supporters of Republican nominee Donald Trump, and on the other are supporters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Throughout the campaign, both sides have clashed through heated rhetoric and, at times, even physical fights.
With this divide as the basis for one of its advertisements, the dog food company Pedigree set out to see if it could bring the two sides together using an adorable Golden Retriever. Pedigrees plan involved sending a woman in a Hillary 2016 shirt to a Trump rally with a dog she pretended was lost. The company then sent the same woman and dog to a Clinton rally dressed in a Trump 2016 shirt to do the same thing.
Right now, we are a country very much divided, the ad says. This election has brought out the worst in us. We sought to remind people what brings out the good.
The delightful dogs presence and the search for his owner brought people at the rallies together. They did not care much about their differing political opinions once the pup was close by. Pedigrees social experiment showed that the only thing needed to bring people across the partisan chasm that appears so gigantic at first glance is a shared love for dogs.

Obama likes dogs . . . for dinner.
PETA likes dogs . . . killed so they cannot be adopted as pets.
No, there is not much overlap between decent people and liberals, except for the occasional peripheral low-information voter on the left.
They don’t say if the golden retriever was male or female. In the latter case, it might be a ploy to make people think it wouldn’t be so bad to have Hillary as President.
They need to make a cat food commercial with the roles reversed.
I’ll play the cat lady with the red MAGA baseball cap.
As you never own a cat because it owns you, a cat better represents the Hillaryous POV.
Sorry, cat lovers but that is the truth. Now the cat lovers hate me!
Perhaps it was neutered, representing a certain Kenyan immigrant _resident.
I used to be quite the lib but have always been a cat lover.
OTOH, I have known many liberal dog lovers.
I can’t recall (HRC-ism), did the Clit ons have a dog or was Hillary the only B—ch in the White House, then?
Mulims hate and kill dogs, even injecting them with poison.
Buddy was hit by a car and died. They gave Socks, their cat, to their secretary.
You can own a cat if you don’t give in to the cat’s mind games.
You see, the cat will stand right in front of you and block your path while beaming guilt trip waves to your brain, as if somehow you were a transgressor for wanting to walk where the cat is.
The answer to that is a gruff “Excuse me, cat” and a firm push, if necessary. Ah sure you’ll pet the cat when you’re good and ready to. But it can’t force you to fawn on it.
Your description again reminds me of Hillaryous and her attitude to the mere plebes whom she expects to elect her.
Same when the cat snuggles up to you in bed, only to begin nipping at you just as you were expecting a nice cuddle. “Excuse me, cat” and a big ole push.
I “adopted” a neighbor’s Golden Retriever when she started to stay at my house because she was being neglected.
She is so loving, sweet & polite that it was easy to fall for her. My Maine Coon cat also loves her.
