Exhibiting about the same amount of faith in their elected representatives as Americans have, two Mexican students have put forward a cat candidate in upcoming elections for mayor of Xalapa who is currently more popular than all four (doubtless corrupt) biped candidates. El Candigato Morris has a Facebook page, a proposed Cabinet, a series of satirical posters, a video wherein he disses the other candidates, a slogan - rid the city of rats - and a set of campaign promises - sleep, eat, play in the dirt, do no harm - which to Americans, if you take Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren out of the equation, sounds pretty good.
