Mickey Mouse Mayor

April 20th, 2006

This isn’t the sort of thing I typically blog about, but I thought that it was amusing enough to share.

This is Kimberly Williamson Butler. She is running for Mayor of New Orleans. She is doing this despite being a clerk in the office which supervises the mayoral election. As you can see from the banner of her campaign website, she has “the right experience” for the job. After all, look how clean New Orleans looks in that photo.

Except that, as Jim Hill Media reports–and I can confirm–that’s Disneyland’s New Orleans Square. From where she’s shown to be “standing,” she’s about 100 feet from the entrance to the Pirates of the Caribbean.

I should point out that for many years it’s been a fantasy of mine that if I had the money to do so, I would live in a second-floor apartment on this very street.

Updated: The web site banner in question has been updated at least twice since I last commented on it. First, the telltale Disneyland trash can was Photoshopped out of the otherwise unchanged photo. As of today, the photo has been removed entirely, replaced by a general graphic proclaiming “The End of Politics as Usual.”
