Homer accidentally blows up all thirty-seven takeaways in Fast Food Boulevard with a carelessly discarded match and,in order to get money to rebuild them, Mayor Quimby decrees that the elections be brought forward,thus making Springfield the first in the country to choose its candidates for the presidential primary. A host of wannabes descend on the town and,in order to put them off,Homer suggests nominating the least likely potential leader of all - Ralph Wiggum. The trouble is,everybody starts to take this seriously and soon all parties are courting Ralph as their candidate,even Bill Clinton. Written by

Lisa states the most obvious implausibility of the story line, that Ralph is only eight years old and the constitution requires the President to be at least 35, though several other aspects of the plot could not happen in real life. Springfield could not hold its own presidential primary as only states hold primaries, not individual cities. Also, for moving its primary date before New Hampshire, Springfield likely would have been penalized by being stripped of its delegates and candidates would not campaign in the state, as was the case in 2008 when Michigan and Florida moved their primaries to January without the permission of the Democratic National Committee.

Ralph can't be president. He's the dumbest person on the dumbest percentile group.
A president doesn't have to be smart. All he has to do is point the army and shoot.
But he's eight, and the Constitution says you have to be thirty-five to be president.
Lis, I'm pretty sure the Patriot Act killed the Constitution to protect our rights.
