Why Cory Booker Is Actually Batman

If you're anything like me and spent 98% of your childhood watching cartoons, your impression of a typical mayor is this:

As most of my educational experiences would have it, the truth involves less of the Power Puff Girls than I initially thought--especially in the case of NJ Mayor Cory Booker:

SWOON. However, Power Puff heroism or not, there is plenty of hero in this political rock-star. The media has had multiple field days with the amount of valiant deeds Booker's been racking up. For example, he recently...

Saved a dog from the nasty cold:

Eye Witness News reporter, Toni Yates, spotted a dog in the cold and tweeted about it to Cory Booker. Cory Booker, like Batman to his signal in the sky, took it upon himself to rescue the dog.

He had this to say about his deed:

"This is brutal weather, this dog is shaking really bad and you just can't leave your dogs out here on a day like this and go away and expect them to be ok. Hypothermia on any animal including a human animal will set in pretty quickly. So this is very sad, you can just feel the dog shaking pretty badly."

Are you already swooning? I am.

Before he did this, he had already created an impressive track-record of valiance:

He let Hurricane Sandy victims take shelter in his home.

How hospitable. I'm feeling light-headed.

After a long day of saving Newark from Newark, he saved his neighbor from a burning house.

He had this to say: “Yesterday all my problems were really big to me. Today things feel a lot more clear,” Booker said. “And I have a lot more respect for firefighters!”

Wow that doesn't make me melt onto the floor or anything. Nope.

When he saw a pedestrian lying in the street after being hit by a car, he gave him water and ice, and comforted him until police and medics got him into an ambulance.

Then he tweeted this:

So he told a man near-death that everything was going to be all right, and it might have helped him come to. No big deal.

And he doesn't only take care of big disasters, he helps prevent them. Last April he responded to a message that a traffic light was out by fixing it.

Is anyone else feeling giddy?

After a blizzard in 2010, he responded to residents' tweets who were stuck in the snow. He rushed to the various scenes and helped dig them out with a shovel.

That's pretty cool I guess. Did it just get warmer in here?

And finally, since my frail heart can't take much more of this, last month Booker lived on $33 worth of food for a week to better understand the plight of having to live on food stamps. 

Cory Booker, you are the hero Gotham needs.

I'm done.
