I ♥ José Mujica

220px-Pepemujica2Last night in Ibiúna, the president of Uruguay came up in a cat-naming session.  Hard to fully explain, but it served as a moment for my friends and I to profess our ♥ for José Mujica!!

José Alberto “Pepe” Mujica Cordano; born 20 May 1935) is an Uruguayan politician, and President of Uruguay since 2010. A former guerrilla fighter and a member of the Broad Front coalition of left-wing parties, Mujica was Minister of Livestock, Agriculture, and Fisheries from 2005 to 2008 and a Senator afterwards. As the candidate of the Broad Front, he won the 2009 presidential election and took office as President on 1 March 2010.

He has been described as “the world’s ‘poorest’ president”, as he donates around 90 percent of his $12,000 monthly salary to charities to benefit poor people and small entrepreneurs.[1]  Read the rest of Pepe’s wiki entry here.
