I'm not surprised that someone called Nekostan thinks cats should be national leaders.

that's just kakistocracy with extra steps
i do, however, think that a catgirl president would be superior to all previous us presidents in a multitude of ways, not the least of which is attractiveness

Exactly.
Welcome to the Nekostan-e Gharbi. Our ancestors were a group of genetically enhanced Israeli cats raised by two Iranian Jewish women, Rachel Davidi and Esther Moshel. We are a constitutional monarchy where a line of benevolent and powerless feline queens “guide” the citizens or more precisely are the subject of their constant gossiping.

Current Queen: Sarah IV (House of Moshel)
Current Prime Minister: Dr. Elisheva Cohen (she is fine with Elizabeth for non-Hebrew speakers) from Likud
Cats rule; dogs drool; Israel rocks; China sucks.
Abolish China and save lives.

We can break the two records at the same time by electing a female feline.

When the treatment is counterproductive placebo is better than the treatment. For example homeopathy is more effective than bloodletting since the latter kills more people than not treating people.

There are definitely rulers who if replaced by a feline would cause a society to improve. Kitties do not murder people because they are Jewish, too rich, too poor, whatever. Moreover they do not plunder the country and are a lot cheaper than human leaders on average. Oh there is one more bonus here. Cats look much better than the old guys who tend to be rulers worldwide. Imagine for example the ugly as hell faces of Mao get replaced by cat faces on currencies and other things especially Tian’anmen Square. That will be a significant improvement.
