Is Meow The Time For A Cat President?

You have to be kitten me.

Posted on

Tired of the ineffectual leadership of impotent humans? We have your candidate: Limberbutt McCubbins.

For real guys. The FEC forms are filed, and an election committee has been formed.

Yesterday the race for Dem presidential nominee was shaken up by Limberbutt McCubbins #Limberbutt2016 #Limbermentum

Limberbutt is one of 468 presidential candidates registered, according to the Politifact.

Limberbutt is selling t-shirts and mugs at his website. He even has a campaign video.

But could a cat really be president? Not really. According to the Constitution, the President has to be 35 years old (and a person).

Isaac Weiss, who filed Limberbutt’s statement of candidacy, points out that in cat years, Limberbutt’s 36. "The Constitution doesn't say it has to be human years," he told the Herald.

Besides the fact that it would be impossible to elect Limberbutt, why would anyone support a cat? For one, this cat's clearly for equal rights. I imagine the rest of his platform is super solid.

The bloated defense budget will be cut in half. What's left would be replaced with lasers.

Catcare, in which cats lick your problems away, would replace Obamacare.

Pluto got you excited? You best believe cats support space exploration! #NASA4life

Limberbutt's likely running mate? It's gotta be Taylor Swift.

  1. Sounds pretty good, right? Are you purr-suaded? Would you #voteordie for a cat?

    I am as ambivalent about this cat as I am about the 468 other candidates.
