Yahoo News - National polls show that voters all over the country are losing faith in their elected leaders. But the 900 residents of Talkeetna, Alaska, say their mayor is doing a great job bringing in tourist dollars and has served in office for over a decade. ”He’s good. He’s probably the best we’ve ever had,” resident Lauri Stec tells KTUU. “He was just in the Alaska Magazine, and he’s been featured in a few different things.” In fact, Stec hangs out with Mayor Stubbs most days at Nagley’s General Store, even though she notes, “He’s growling at me right now.” That’s because the 15-year-old mayor is actually a cat, who was elected to office as a write-in candidate shortly after his birth. Though residents say he’s been taking the newfound fame in stride, with his major indulgence being a daily dose of catnip served from a wine glass.
Listen everybody hates cats. Like even the cat owners that I know readily admit that having one is a degrading challenge and they’d rather just throw it in the middle of a lake or something. But when you’re electing public officials that’s the type of motherfucker you want in office. A-no nonsense, catnip addicting public policy freak like Mr. Stubbs. I mean the problem with politicians is they’re always acting all nice to everybody. They’re total fakers. Kissing disgusting babies and shaking everybody’s hands. It’s gross. Cats ain’t like that though. Life ain’t a game to them. Like Mr. Stubbs has like a 100% approval rating and straight does drugs from a wine glass every night. Meanwhile there’s been like 300 murders in Chicago this summer and Rahm Emmanuel can’t do a thing to stop it. I’d vote for Stubbs here in a heartbeat and if he doesn’t do a good job no big deal we’ll just throw him in Lake Michigan and laugh our asses off.
