Of all the embattled figures in Washington, we thought one was truly safe. His approval ratings remained high, and he seemed above the fray of Washington politics. However, in times such as these, not even Bo Obama can survive without a high-profile challenger from within his own party.
Meet Sunny, the pup who could unseat the vaunted incumbent:

Judging by Sunny’s early endorsers on Twitter, Bo may face an uphill battle to retain his seat … or rather his plush doggy bed.

Opponents wasted no time in deploying their snark against this new threat. One fictitious GOP source tells Twitchy, “Regardless of who wins this nomination, we’ll be waiting with a shock collar.”

Checkmate RT @repjustinamash: Congrats. Sunny will probably hear more information about surveillance programs than most Members of Congress.

Congrats to the first family on the new puppy. I think they named him "Sunny," though Barack has suspiciously nicknamed him "dinner".

Do we need two Choppers now to transport Sunny and Bo?

Pup of the people?
Some in the media, normally favorable to the incumbent, remain skeptical of the upstart challenger.
I don't care if the White House got a dog right now.
