2007_10_betty_the_beagle.gifWhat does the MSM do when faced with a slow news day? They trot out pictures of puppies and ask you to vote on them.

Man, are we glad there's nothing like an impending CTA shutdown, a grossly exaggerated tax hike, complaints of police department misbehavior, or anything like that going on.* Thank God for puppies.

* The above snark is meant in no way to imply that we don't love puppies. In fact we have two of them. And we jump out of our car to wrangle lost pets and bring them in to the Anti-Cruelty Society. And you should too.
