Could Oakland’s Next Mayor Be This Dog?

When voting in an election, normally you have to decide between two candidates who would be the lesser of two evils. But in Oakland, there is a new option: Einstein The Dog!

“I like to run. A lot! I mean A LOT! So make no mistake, I can make it all the way to the finish line,” says Einstein’s website.

A group of Occupy activists announced Thursday their plan for Einstein the dog’s candidacy.

While the group admits they really do not have a chance of winning (actually it is illegal for a dog to win an election), they do have a goal to bring attention to the problems in Oakland, including police brutality and wage disparity.

And while Einstein is clearly a good boy his campaign could be doomed from the beginning due to his anti-cat stance and history of licking his own ass.
