The Biden Administration: a puppy-hug in the making

I’m trying to imagine a cat in the White House. Maybe it’s just confined to the residence?

I trust cat people.

I trust people that cats trust.

What other First Pets have we had in this country?

Has there ever been a First Parrot?

Martha Washington reportedly had a parrot, so the First Parrot was one of the first pets!

Not a dog-centric thread.
Heh, 'aight? :dog2: :face_with_monocle: :poodle:

Sure, an easy target, but still, a fine, measured take-down. I can only hope when Psaki steps down (soon? doing the mom stuff?) that her replacement is as good.

Just gotta keep hammering, stumping away at this. A lot of it will be preaching to the choir, sure, but regardless: this messaging has to be constantly ramped up now.

But that’s not good enough for some, and some in the choir have decided to tear paper and blow noisemakers during the preaching. Article.

That’s true. And it’s not just Fox. Andrea Mitchell is very critical of Biden. CNN is as well. It’s just constant bullshit criticism.

I want to pull my hair out.

If Biden walked on water headlines would read: “Biden Can’t Swim”.

** this joke, as far as I know, originated with LBJ.

How about this headline: Biden all but concedes defeat on voting, election bills

Mostly good; some bad:

Some more perspectives:

Andrew Jackson did:

Martha Washington had one years earlier, as I posted. Though it’s unknown if it talked, unlike Jackon’s which was filthy. William McKinley had a pet parrot named The Washington Post (seriously) and it sang Yankee Doodle Dandy.

Both John Q Adams and Hoover had pet alligators.

Teddy Roosevelt had a freaking zoo.

The article I posted earlier was pretty fun.
