drinksaway.jpgThe lead-up to the convention just got a little weirder. Adorable, but weird. Check out Slate’s video of “Pol Cats: The Treadmill.” It’s a “satire” of Hillary and Barack’s political aspirations, as illustrated by two felines running on a treadmill. Hillary is a fluffy calico, and Barack is a black cat with tiny white socks. If we wanted to get literal, the Barack cat should be half-white, but hey, they’re running on a freakin’ treadmill. The video’s not hilarious, but it’s probably more entertaining (and infinitely cuter) than the slew of post-convention political commercials that’s in our future.
