Ask GiGi: Help! I’m Caught in a Campaign Quandary!

What percent are you? Who's got the dog vote? Who's running in 2016?


Dear GiGi,

With the Presidential election coming up, I can’t turn the TV on without being bombarded with political ads, news stories about the candidates, people trying to tell me I’m 1 percent, 47 percent, 99 percent … what the fluff? Any thoughts?

Pete, Tampa, FL

Dear Pete,

I don’t know what to tell you. I can’t wrap my head around any of it either. From hearing tales of being strapped to a car roof for a long road trip to the other guy saying he had dog burgers as a kid, it’s all weird to me. Who knows what to believe?

Don’t get me wrong: Sticking my head out the car window, wind flying up my nose, bugging my eyes out like flying saucers, and catching bugs in my ears at 50mph is AHH-mazing. But I’m not so sure I’d want to be all Leonardo of the Titanic atop a minivan for hours on end, and becoming a GiGi double-double with fries does not sound appealing either.

So, Pete, here are my thoughts: Vote for the one who promises the most treats and write me in for GIGI 2016!!

All hail Gi!
