If you have been reading Tony's Daily Updates then you know we have been less then happy that the U.S. Senate Republicans have for the most part been making themselves comfortable to be in the Minority for a looong time. They have largely been silent on a number of President Obama's more controversial nominees, ensuring that the millions of American citizens they represent also have no voice in the U.S. Senate. For those displaced citizens a new website now gives everyone a chance to vote for who will be the White House Farmer
You Can Vote For White House Farmer
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin has three residents in the running so far to be recommended as the White House farmer, if President Obama decides to create that position.
Several groups are behind the campaign to have the Obama family plant an organic garden on the White House grounds for use by the first family and also for food pantries that could use some of the produce.
Plans call for the nominees submitted as of January 31st to be narrowed to the top three vote-getters, who will be recommended to the president for the job.
Wisconsin residents among the 20 people nominated include Claire Strader of Troy Community Farm at Troy Gardens in Madison, Dela Ends of Scotch Hill Farm near Brodhead and Steve Haak of the Haak Family Farms in Belleville.

Since the position does not actually exist maybe you might just want to make your voice heard on what kind of dog the Obama's should get.
If President Obama needs someone to train the new dog on how to roll over, I know quite a few Senators who can help.
