Vote for a jackass?

I just saw a “news” clip about Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, where the candidates for mayor include eleven dogs, a cat, and a jackass. Seriously. Some even have websites. For a dollar, you can vote for one, with the money going to their historical society. As they say on their election page, “Hey, it’s not bribery if everyone knows about it.” I guess that’s democracy in action.
