The Otter Blog is about to drop some civic knowledge on your ass. This is Clement Leroy Otter. What is a Clement Leroy, and why is that funny you ask? Well, Clement and Leroy are the first and middle names of the Governor of Idaho and his last name is Otter. His nickname is “Butch,” so people call him Butch Otter. Seriously, for realz. Idaho’s Governor is Butch Otter. This makes Butch Otter the highest-ranking otter in the United States. And, if like me, you find this amusing, then you will love his Wikipedia page. According to the section titled, “Otter on the Issues,” he hates taxes, civil liberties, unions, aborting stuff, immigrants, gay marriages, and gray wolves. His stance on killing gray wolves is understandable, but the rest of it seems too conservative for an otter. As you likely know, otters are considered some of the most socially liberal members of the animal kingdom. Anyway, I hope this Otter guy runs for president. I think a Butch Otter is exactly what this country needs, and it will provide me months of lulz.
