Meet the Next President

This one looks Presidential.

If you haven’t seen this story yet, it’s too good to let pass.  This could well be the solution to our cast of Republican presidential candidates.  Indeed, it could answer for 99.9% of all positions in Congress.  I don’t say 100%, because I hold the constant hope that hiding somewhere in the shadows of those hallowed halls in Washington (or Tulsa) is at least a solitary statesman, rather than politician.

From the Associated Press comes a story out of Siberia.  In the next week, the council for the city of Barnaul, Russia, will need to choose a new mayor from a field of seven candidates.   Barnaul is a town 1,800 miles east of Moscow.  Their 650,000 residents were asked to vote in an online poll to express their preferences among the six human candidates and one Siamese cat named Barsik.  The voters are so tired of political corruption and incompetence that Barsik nabbed ninety percent of the vote.  In our local paper, this appeared in section ‘B’, page 10.  There’s a message here that’s strong enough to require that it be on page one.

  1. My vote when necessary crosses party lines to what is best for our country; This is a terrible bunch of candidates, period - NONE of the candidates show the objectivity needed. Lets just paddle and hope that it all washes out.

    1. Amen. As the saying goes: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.
