Senator Toaster

Toaster wants to be New York’s new senator.

Caroline Kennedy is famous and everything, but it looks like support for her is not universal:

Resistance is emerging among Democratic officials against Caroline Kennedy as she pursues Hillary Rodham Clinton’s seat in the United States Senate, with Gov. David A. Paterson bristling over suggestions that her selection is inevitable, according to his advisers, and other leading Democrats concerned that she is too beholden to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

So maybe Toaster might have a chance.

He has a lot of things going for him:

  • He is well-versed in current events. He has deep discussions with Bwana, and not just about baseball.
  • He is very involved in our democracy, having walked all the way to Minnesota to help with their recount.
  • Reads all the newspapers. All of them. (He can name them all, too.)
  • Promises to disclose all his finances, even the big allowance that Bwana gives him.
  • He vows to represent not just small appliances, but all New Yorkers.
  • His platform of bringing joy, happienesss, and toastieness to the world is embraced by everyone from the far right to the far left of the political spectrum.

Another plus is that he’s great pals with Governor Paterson’s toaster, not that an inside connection should have anything to do with selecting those who represent us in the government.
