Cat Got Your Town?

The Omena, Michigan mayor’s race consists of a cat, a chicken, and a goat. I assume a human is also running, but I cannot fathom any human would be elected over a chicken.

Mayor Sweet Tart McKee, the incumbent currently running for reelection in Omena, Mich., isn’t concerned about her competition this year.

But then again, Sweet Tart is a cat, so she’s not concerned about much of anything.

For more than a decade, the Northern Michigan hamlet of Omena — a small unincorporated community that does not have its own government — has held ceremonial elections for non-human mayors. The tongue-in-cheek triennial elections are fundraisers for the Omena Historical Society, with each dollar contributed to the organization equaling one vote. While all the critter candidates are from the community, anyone in the world can cast a ballot, in person or online, from now through July 23.

Having never visited Omena, Michigan, I can still say with certainty that Sweet Tart is better than every single Republican politician with the possible exception of Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.

Ready For Hillary… To Go Away

In her unending quest for relevancy, Hillary Clinton has expressed a desire to run for mayor of New York City. Unfortunately for the failed POTUS candidate, the Big Apple wants to see this worm stay home.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t perform well in the latest poll in the New York City mayor’s race, according to a new Rasmussen poll released Tuesday.

Fifty-eight percent of likely voters in the city don’t want Clinton to run again, compared to just 23 percent of voters who wanted the former presidential candidate to run. Nineteen percent of voters hadn’t yet made up their mind.

Clinton expressed interest in the race, but said she would only consider running if de Blasio didn’t enter the race for some reason.

Wow, when you’ve lost uber-liberal New York City…

Okay Hillary, maybe president or mayor isn’t your bag. I know, maybe you can vie to be crowned queen of the harpies?
