In the ultimate act of political transparency, Grumpy the clown won in a landslide election to the Brazilian Congress. He campaigned on three basic standards:
- He has no idea what the duties of his office entail. But he craftily posits that no one else running really knows either…
- He will not be a corrupt politician because he really doesn’t care.
- Hey, it can’t get any worse, you might as well elect me.
The only problem is that he might possibly be illiterate.
Do we actually issue a literacy test for our Congressmen? It sometimes seems as though we don’t. Hey, if Brazil doesn’t want this guy, we’ll take him. I already like him better than Harry Reid.
Here is a montage of Grumpy’s campaign commercials. Enjoy.
