Yep, you read that right. Not only is there a cat running for president, his name is—wait for it—Limberbutt McCubbins. Seriously folks, with all that's going on in the world right now, this has got to be the best news you've heard all day, are we right?
So what are the issues most important to Limberbutt? His campaign managers (teens Isaac Weiss and Emilee McCubbins) told the Washington Post that this tabby from Kentucky firmly believes in "a fair tax code, strong middle class, affordable health care and gay-cat marriage rights." Sounds like a progressive kitty after our own hearts!
But is he legally allowed to run for the nation's highest office? Well, technically, it's not illegal for cats to be president as there's nothing in the U.S. Constitution that prohibits it (go founding fathers!) which, needless to say, is totally good enough for us.
All joking aside, the fact that Limberbutt has thousands of supporters on Facebook reflects many Americans' current dissatisfaction (to put it mildly) with year's election. As Weiss told the Washington Post: "Limberbutt, for them, is an outlet to voice their frustrations and have a political discussion with a true outsider and hopeful Washington fat cat."
'Nuff said. Limberbutt McCubbins gets Cuteness's official endorsement for president. Check out his official campaign site here.
