[OK, in *this* case, I wouldn't be surprised. Somehow. - Ed.]

Awwww. But do skwerls even have the vote? Squirrel Suffrage Now! That's the sign he *should* be carrying.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:21 AM

Hee hee! That is so cute! The squirrels have been especially busy in our yard lately. Who knew they were campaigning!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:22 AM

The way things are going at the moment, I have far more faith in squirrels than humans when it comes to running things.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:27 AM

That's what I'm thinking too, Karen. It looks shopped. I can tell by the pixels and having seen many photoshops in my day...

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:30 AM

OMG, this is so not photoshopped. I heard some tiny hammering from the yard all last night, and clearly they were working hard on these to support the campaign.

[Dude. That was *me*. - Ed.]

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:31 AM

Wow, all the squirrels in my neighborhood want to know where they can get those teeny tiny campaign signs! Do they come in raccoon, skunk, opossum, and ant size also?

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:37 AM

Loyal supporter works for peanuts.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:39 AM

Squeeeeee! I am so putting that as my desktop wallpaper. Squirrels FTW!!!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:42 AM

The sign should say Mccain...*cough* squirrel is cute though

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:42 AM

With that Bush-y tail, I'd have pegged that little feller as a Republican!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:48 AM

Man, I come to Cute Overload to get a breather from the campaigns, a moment of sanity. Now that stuff is here, too. I can has campaign timeout?

Betcha Sugar Bush Squirrel would have something to say about this.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:49 AM

zOMG, look at that humongous tailo! He looks like he's saying "Obama promised me some nuts, but all I got were a bunch of crazy house representatives! :( "

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:50 AM

that's one cute (and smart) squirrel! <33

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:51 AM


It seems that polar bears are campaigning for Obama as well.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:51 AM

That Obama sign is proof that he -is- nuts!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:53 AM

That's a baby squirrel, I think. How adorabuhls! It looks like a cute little goblin with those sticky-up ears.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:56 AM

gee, the squirrels in my yard have been too busy worrying about their tree being repossessed to do any campaigning.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:58 AM

I want a campaign free zone :( I hope he's not a Mahr fan too :( :( :(

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 06:58 AM

yay obama squirrel! now somebody do a mccain disapproving rabbit. you know it is coming.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:03 AM

All sing:-
Were for Obama, Obama can't you see,
Well I come from Alabama
with a banjo on my knee.

it's a groundswell among the groundskwerls!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:12 AM

I gotz campaign fatigue, too. If you must go there, at least keep it cute, people. And when do we see a pic of a baby stoat coming out of a voting booth?

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:13 AM

Hey! Equal time if we have to have campaigning even here!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:14 AM

That does look like a bebeh squirrel. We have a little bebeh squirrel living somewhere in our yard right now. The big squirrels climb up the bird feeder. The little feller either hasn't figured out how to do that yet or isn't big/strong enough to do it.

Just curious: Does "You're Hussein to the membrane" actually mean something?

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:16 AM

Oops! "in" not "to"

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:17 AM

ROFLMAO @ metaskins - seriously funny

and slightly sad

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:17 AM

Even the squirrels get it!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:22 AM

We need a CO term for people who yell "photoshop" (digi-nuffer?) at the first sign of a potentially altered photo.

It's adorable, I don't care if it's photoshop or not!

Go squirrel, it's your world and you're just trying to get a nut!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:24 AM

This is enough to make me reconsider my long-held dislike of squirrels. This little feller has good taste!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:24 AM


Not just polar bears, but yetis too!


 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:26 AM

@metaskins: OMG. So true. LOL.

Hmm. Maple leaves (didja all know we're having a federal election up here? and it only takes a month).

@balamutha: What about "shoplifters?"

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:28 AM

Annie-it's in reference to a song called "Insane in the Membrane"....Hussein being Barack's middle name....get it?

I knew them sqwerels were a smart bunch...

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:34 AM

Hussein is Barack's middle name. I think it is a family name.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:37 AM

Oops, someone got to it first. The squirrel is very cute though.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:37 AM

I do believe my little squirrel buddy has the right idea!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:41 AM


Oh, not to worry- the federal government got rid of the "equal time" ruling a long time ago. ;-)

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 07:48 AM

@(the original) Mel

Haha, maybe- or "shop-nuffers"!

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 08:06 AM

Don't blame the little guy . . . he can't help himself. He has a very tiny brain. :-)

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 08:12 AM

The squirrel is cute but please no more politics or anything financial.

My head hurts, CO (without the politics or financials) is the aspirin.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 08:21 AM

My school is notorious for its large squirrel population ........

I just bet this pic was taken on saturday when obama came to my campus ... LMAO ...

re: aloria's "mccain disapproving rabbit" = LOL!

If we don't want politics bleeding into the cute, can we refrain from snarky politics in the comments at the very least? Whether I'm an OBAMA or McCAIN supporter, the bottom line is that Squirrley McSquirlsons has furry pants.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 08:24 AM

*is sneaky*

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 08:30 AM

ha ha ANYTHING tiny is cute..even if it's a tiny obama sign...yes to a grumpy republlican like me :-)

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 08:36 AM

hmm. must have something to do with the size of the brain.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 08:37 AM

[SNORT] ...wait till you find the REAL photo, Scooter.

 |  Sep 30, 2008 at 08:38 AM
