Maybe another VP candidate from Alaska?

Why doesn't someone run against him? I bet when push comes to shove he's a real pussy.

mr_a: Maybe another VP candidate from Alaska?


We should all start drafting letters about C. Stubbs and his amazing magnetism and how he would be perfect as VP: from a small town, came from nothing, mixed heritage, and not a single scandal to his name.

We were in Talkeetna several years ago... one of our favorite towns.
Now I know why we liked it so much.

He is addicted to catnip and will pass any bill if for the right amount of salmon.

I've had a cat live to twenty, but I don't think many that live 35 years.

I should run my cat in one of those local elections where 52 senile people vote. Could probably get her on the school board or something.

The thing about Stubbs, is well, he has a bit of a drinking problem. Seriously, the guy lives in a bar, sleeps on a pool table, and I've seen him partake more than once. And he's a little too attached to stuffed animals, if you know what I mean.

Of course not. It was no doubt on a local news station and then a Redditor went, "I'll post this and make sure I beat Fark to this cat mayor article! That'll show them." Meanwhile, a Farker, seeing the same story, thought to themselves, "I hope this gets greenlit soon, we need to teach Reddit who's original and who's not!"

There is no Mayor. The city is unincorporated and the population year 'round is right around 1000. The chamber of commerce pretty much handles the business end of things.
 
2012-07-16 01:26:36 PM  
Talkeetna is actually a really cool town. There's definitely a neat international vibe about the place since it's the starting point for everyone who wants to climb Denali. More than anywhere else in Alaska, adventurous people from all over the world funnel through Talkeetna, so it's about the closest thing we have to a European mountain village.

The restaurants and bar on Main street are great, too. Hearty food and stiff drinks.

I too met Stubbs back in 1999 when I was passing through......

Stubbs, a part-manx cat with a short tail, has been the mayor of Talkeetna since he was elected shortly after his birth,.

We need to see a birth certificate, Mr. Stubbs. I just can't accept the sworn testimony of the five other kittens in your litter. You claim to be part Manx. That's just lib speak for Cat Religion of Peace, you know. You and your kind won't be happy until all the tabbies are subjugated under your Manx Mantle of One World Catness. And that aint never gonna happen as long as I got my claws.

I just checked them on the sofa. Uh, seems I was declawed some time last week under your Stubbs' Universal Heathcare and Claw Control Program. Well, we can still his and shake our tails at you.

My testes seem to have vanished too. I blame Stubbs.

Well you have to understand how powerful his "Yes we CAN-haz Cheezeburgers" Campaign slogan was. In a state, so fast food deprived that when Taco bell air-lifted a few thousand tacos into a remote bush-town it was covered like the Second Coming, a pro-cheeseburger message was embraced as real beacon of hope, a promise of better days to come. Now as critics point out, it has been fast-food as usual for the last few years and there's precious little sign of the promised cheeseburgers. However the kitty rather sucessfully made the obstructionist dogs on the town council bear the blame for that and so sailed to re-election.

mr_a: Maybe another VP candidate from Alaska?


Given that a US Vice President's job is basically to fly around shaking hands and building support for his boss without putting his foot in his mouth, and sitting quietly in Senate sessions, I think a cat would be absolutely perfect for the job. Train it to hit yes or no in the extremely rare event of a Senate tie, and you have yourself a winner.

This should be mandated in the event that a President declines to fill a vacant VP office - as has happened before, not that anyone really minded the absence. Cat President having control of the big red button would be a bit scary, though.

Hell, Japan would probably be OK with a cat Prime Minister if the guy was kicked out and no one could agree on a successor. Maybe even Emperor. No one can possibly hate Maru.

Well they did say he won an election for the position of Mayor against actual human candidates. Everyone just hated all the human candidates.

But, indeed, "Mayor" in small towns is usually just a figurehead position to trot out at fairs and parades and the like. Or a ceremonial position sort of "awared" to someone who's done a lot of the city. Like a lifetime achievement award.
