Storyline

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 don @ minifie-1

Starts Out With Less Than What It Ends With
7 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This must be one of the few opened-ended episodes of The Simpsons. And I must admit I started out thinking it was going to be another piece of trash handed out by the writers, but what I got what a completely oblivious view of the election race. Unlike previous episodes they didn't have the top candidates next to Ralph running. They were only mentioned in playful passing. I do have to admit I really liked the Fred Thompson joke about him being in Die Hard 2. But this episode is really good at showing what people who don't care about politics can really do to harm the process.

This wasn't a straight forward episode but a very good parody on politics. Good job writers for doing it yet again this season!
