I am not sure if I was officially nominated, but it certainly was implied. So I'm taking it and running....

I accept your presidential nomination with a deep sense of humility. I accept, too, the responsibility that goes with it, and I seek your continued help and your continued guidance. My fellow doggies, our cause is too great for any single dog to feel worthy of it. Our task would be too great for any dog, did he not have with him the heart and the hands of this great International Doggie Party, and I promise you tonight that every fiber of my being is consecrated to our cause; that nothing shall be lacking from the struggle that can be brought to it by enthusiasm, by devotion, and plain hard work. In this world no person, no party can guarantee anything, but what we can do and what we shall do is to deserve victory, and victory will be ours.

The good Lord raised this mighty community to be a home for the brave and to flourish as the land of the free - not to stagnate in the swampland of collectivism, not to cringe before the bully of communism.

What does this all mean? To be perfectly frank, I don't know. But - I promise BULLY STICKS to everydog, along with mandatory belly rubs and smooches on the nose (or other comparable body parts) on a daily basis. This is the basis of my platform.

If you are a dog, you may vote. If you are a hamster, you may vote (but only for me). If you are a C-A-T, you may vote for me (if you don't constantly meow very loudly... that scares me). Color doesn't matter. Hair (or lack of) doesn't matter. Breed doesn't matter. Size doesn't matter. Weight doesn't matter. All that matters is if you want snackies, attention, and love.

I urge you, my fellow members of the International Doggie Party (which can be abbreviated I.D.P. which can also stand for I Don't Poo-in-the-house and can also stand for I Digest Poo-before-you-find-it-in-the-house) vote for me. I would like to ask the infamous Mr. Joseph Stains to be my Vice President, as well as my BFF Ms. Lola Sprout Beyonce to be my First Lady even though we are not married and are just Best Friends Forever and although she is beautiful I am not in love with her.

I repeat, I accept your nomination with humbleness, with pride, and you and I are going to fight for the goodness of our land. Thank you.

Note: Parts of this acceptance speech may or may not have been plagerized from the Presidential Nomination Speech Archives... I don't recall. (See - I can fit right in with all the other front-runners!)

I would like to vote for you if I may.

I took a doggy test and it came up I should get a Cinese Little Man like you for my lifestyle. What do you think?

Hugs and belly rubs

Petra said...

Oh, Tadpole, you are fabulous. You have my vote once, twice, always. I humbly also accept the position of campaign manager (I know, you were so busy writing your speech that you forgot to mention me), but I will get hard to work and support you, Tadpole Pomegrante, Mr. President Elect, who will fulfill every dream and desire that each of us have.

Your humble servant, Petra
I cannot imagine a better candidate.

Peanut said...

I do not think there is a better candidate out there for president. Mom says she would even vote for you. I would make Shelby the cat vote for you also.

But what about Turbo? Isn't he already running?

Ferndoggle said...

Hiiiii Tadpole! I would be honored to be your first lady & promise to help you run our great country with style & grace...and style. What a stupendously handsome couple we will make!


Bella the Boxer said...

Ruby Bleu said...

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Suki Sumo said...

Wow, that was so inspiring! You said a lot of things I didn't even understand but it sounded REALLY REALLY good! I will vote for you.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Tad!
Like Suki Sumo, I did not understand many things from your speech but sure sounds great!
You are "da man" and I will vote for you!
Kisses and hugs

Grammie said...

You make as much sense to me as all the other candidates. You have our vote.

Luckie Girl said...

I'm ready to vote! When is Election Day? Although I don't quite understand your entire speech, I thought it was really well written.:P

Amber-Mae said...

I don't understand many things from your speech too but I think your speech was great & inspiring! You got MY VOTE!!!

Love licks,

Stanley said...

TadMan! (Or should I start calling you Mr. President already?)

That was a FABulous speech, and I think you meant most of it. I especially like the alternate meanings for IDP. We have a versatile acronym there.

Has Lola agreed to be your first lady? I think you & Joe will make a great team. You have my vote!

Goober love & political solidarity,

Mack said...

No, thank YOU future Mr. president.

2shibas said...

We are registered and ready to vote. If you need help "counting" the results, we will be happy to help. We don't know how to count, but that doesn't really seem to bother the hooman politicians, so we didn't think it would bother you!

Haroooo! Good luck!

Lady Kaos said...

You are going to be the best president ever!! Mom and I are going to start working on your campaign flyers soon. We're doing some research to make sure your flyers are the best out there!

Sophie Brador said...

Wow Tad! You really came out of the gate barking, and that is some platform. This is going to be tough, because I also pledged my support to Ernest Puppy, the flat bassett, but Joe Stains and I have a (ahem) special relationship. Oh no! What's a girl to do. I sense a scandal.


MJ's doghouse said...

wow tad...that was an impressive speach...and since i am a canadiadog...i cant really vote...but..i can cheer you on...tonight i will try and think of a song for your campaign maybe....i hope you win dude...cuz maybe that will make a more peaceful america. OHOHOH and when you win....will you PLEasssse invite me to the indogural ball...i know miss Lola will be your date...but I could be your friend....Puuuuleaaaaaaaase

Tofu Burger said...

"I don't recall" hehe hehehe you totally fit right in... 'Tadpole, what happen to that poo?... answers I don't recall"

You got my vote! You'd be the first nekkid Chinese man in the oval office I bet.


Joe Stains said...

Tad, this was a great speech. You know I was thinking that while all these other presidential wannabe's are all AGAINST global warming I am all for it. I think that you, as a naked chinese man, might also prefer that the earth get warmer. This might be the unique platform we need to ensure victory.

Poppy said...

Oh, Taddy, I will definitely vote for you! But can we say that IDP can also stand for I Do Poo-in-the-house?? Cuz, um, I do.


Girl Girl Hamster said...

I would vote for you Tadpole. You and Joey will be pawsome running the country

COL. Sam ASTA-fari Joe H. Pinkerton Peabody, Esq said...

I found your blog through Joe Stains, and even though I have only just met you, I feel compelled to swing all my support your way to become president. You have mine, and both of my sisters', vote.

Lady Kaos said...

I have a flyer ready for you on my blog!

We're just getting on the bandwagon! OMG, we can't believe that there was another presidential candidate and we were left out in the dark! You sound very honest and straight-forward! You've got our vote too!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

You've got our vote Tadpole and we will help with your campaign anyway we can! We think you and Joe have a really good chance of winning this thing!
Ozzie & Rocky

Patience-please said...

You absolutely have our votes (that's NINE, count 'em NINE votes right there so I think you win!) and I bet our servants would vote for you too.
It was a Fine Speach.

Wow what a speech - you sure have got my vote Tad!


Ike said...

You have my vote.

Turbo the Sibe said...

Greetings and Salutations Candidate Tadpole. I am also running for President. I looked it up in the Constitution and there isn't anything in it that says that there cannot be more than 1 dog president. I think we both agree that it's time for a real change. It's time to kick the stupid humans out and replace them with a canine...or two...or more! Woo!

Frasier said...
