Watch out Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, because Hello Kitty's on the campaign trail! The Sanrio cat has just declared her candidacy in the 2012 presidential race—and what she lacks for in a mouth, she more than makes up for in cuteness... and merch.
Yes, we're pretty sure that Kitty has the best campaign logos and T-shirts in the race:
L-R: Heart tee, $26; USA tee, $26; Men's tee, $26; and Sitting tee, $26
And, sorry Obama, we know you collaborated with designers such as Alexander Wang and Diane von Furstenberg for your Runway to Win collection, but Kitty's got your accessories selection beat with Chubby Bunny bow headbands, $30, and key caps, $3.95:
And don't even get us started on the cuteness quotient of Kitty's runnning mates! You can vote for Tuxedosam, Badtz-Maru, My Melody, Keroppi, or Chococat to be Kitty's Vice President over at the Hello Kitty for President Facebook Page.
Honestly, with two penguins in the running, we have no idea how this election is going to shake out.
So, are you going to be voting for Hello Kitty this November? Check out her full line of campaign merch right here and join the cause on Facebook too!
All we want to know is what her stance is on Big Bird.
