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
