    He would later be impeached after it turned out all swimming pools in Iceland received free swimming towels.

  • Serious Sally

    ACTUALLY what we need in politics is honesty and someone who would find it an honor to serve the people. Not someone who wants to get rich or just put forth their own agendas. Not some extreme of either side. While I think a lot of his antics are funny, certainly not appropriate for office. Also, Sigur Ros is the coolest musical export.

    • Needlegun13

      Just enjoy the article GAH!!!!

    • schwitzphilli

      Although he added a satyrical twist to the political system of Iceland, I think it is amazing that he got into office and politicians around the world should take note. Icelanders got screwed over by their politicians and said enough is enough. If politicians are going to treat the system like a joke, why not elect somebody that is open about it.

    • Smitty

      Like any of the actions of previous politicians were appropriate.

  • http://twitter.com/ofwiv @ofwiv

    At first, I liked his dedication to open corruption and fulfilling none of his promises…..

    then #14 – now i like him for his awesome reproductive capabilities!!!!

  • Feroz

    Has to be the coolest guy in politics ever!

  • Garden Gnome

    He sounds like a pretty cool guy, but still not someone I'd want running a city. His daughter is hot though.

    • great

      did not mention anything about if he can even run a city or how his term(s) have progressed….

  • Needlegun13

    Hell, I'd vote for him!!!

  • shetakeshervitamins

    Gnarr.. you going to the mall later? that's what I'm asking

    • bizarrogreg

      Keep spelling, mister

      • bizarrogreg

        And I'm not trying yo troll this guy. Just completing his Billy Madison line.

  • jimbob

    Cool in politics gets us this guy and Barack Obama. Awesome.

    • jimbob

      [/sarcasm]

    • Dave

      Barack Obama is just a good liar….

      • UncleRoast

        ALL politicians are good liars . . . With the exception of Jon Gnarr!

  • N2MotoX

    He needs to come to Chive Headquarters……so we can see his daughter!

  • rararara

    reddit repost.

    • Yeahhh

      Douche comment

  • sfb101

    We could use a new party like this one!

  • Verbal_Kint

    You know what's really cool? Congress passing a budget and the government not spending money it doesn't have like drunken sailors.

    • Who

      Amen

    • Hrdwood

      You've got my vote… well said.

    • Guest

      Half of Congress does every year.

      Well, they still have some of that drunken sailor crap going on, but still, they pass one.

      • Verbal_Kint

        see previous comment re: drunken sailors. Budget means spending what you have, not spending what you want. I'd love a new car, but unless I have the money for it, I'm not getting one. Why shouldn't our government be held to the same standard? Maybe I can spend some of your money on a new car?

    • askandyoureceive

      Please stop using the "Drunken Sailor" saying. We sailors do this thing called "Stop and go home", when we run out of money. I don't know why you all think we have the power to make money appear out of nowhere.

      • Verbal_Kint

        I was actually referring to fictional accounts of sailors on shore leave to dramatize the point, but fair enough.

  • Lyin King

    BUT IS HE ANY GOOD?

    I Mean he wins cookie points for being the bestest coolest councilor on camp but has he improved public services driven down waste and corruption or is he just a figure head and the crooked people are having a field day with a guy who doesn't know the crooked game?

    I dont know the answer to these questions but it would be important to figure them out.

    He seems like a great human and def a breath of fresh air but does he actually control and manage or is he being exploited?

    • dalshepsut

      I was expecting something about ways he improved his city, but I guess his hot daughter is just as important..

    • gus

      exactly what I was thinking. Just because you're not a douche doesn't mean you're going to be successful at running a city

      • LOLP

        *Looks around* Isn't that kind of the point? If everything doesn't fly into hell, doesn't he "win"? I mean look at the mayors of cities like Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago, these cities are dirty as a dollar whore, yet they parade around like they are better than thou…

        He doesn't need to make things better to prove that these other guys are worthless…

        • Lyin King

          Okay well you are correct in that line of thinking. Yes if he manages to keep the city running and in at least no worse a shape than when he was inaugurated I suppose he's accomplished something.

          I just feel if a guy is going to be that radical in campaigning he can afford to be radical policy wise. I mean if he can get elected on a non issue agenda than surely he could balance a budget without fear of angering patronage. Which is the only reason major American cities dont experience such change b/c there are too many people being fed on the current system.

          From public works to the paper pushers people survive int he status qua of a NYC, LA and Chicago. Thats why change in Austin, TX is easier than Miami.

          I think since this guy has nothing to loose he should really go for broke and try to engineer a sound stable long term healthy civic system (not to say Iceland is a cesspool of corruption as I have never lived there nor given close study to it)

          Who knows I may be missing the point entirely. Iceland could be a Utopia and the peoples biggest problem is that meter maids dont smile enough.

  • ChiTownChiver

    Badass! And yeah, The Wire is a good prerequisite to have with choosing friends and business partners. Oh, daughters hot too

  • Engels

    Unfortunately in America he would be considered to be a communist…

  • Penal_Colony

    So wait… is he actually retarded or no?

  • Craig K.

    Until someone could post things he's done since becoming mayor, he's only in it to famous.
    Try researching Cory Booker if you want to read about a cool mayor. A politician who is actually cares for his city/constituency.

    – Not from NJ

    • Dave

      #14 and you're a douchebag

  • Back from the Dead

    Wow, make a joke of things, act stupid and you can become the mayor of a frozen city of about 120K.

    But I guess any mayor of Reykjavik would be a contender for the coldest, oh, sorry, coolest.

  • Acdc

    Uhhh so what has he actually done as Mayor?

    • Dave

      #14…….does it matter?

    • von Mises

      Dude, he's like cool and stuff. That's all that matters to today's simpletons. This web site celebrates Putin, former KGB and pedophile who is currently slaughtering his own people. But hey, he's cool. So just swallow the genocide and vote democrat, okay?

  • svp

    so that's his daughter?? http://i.imgur.com/mxjid.jpg
