Ding Dong, stupid is dead, Milhouse for Governor!

In a surprise result, ex-Governor Pedro Rossello was defeated by Luis "Milhouse" Fortuño in the New Progressive Party's 2008 Primary for Governor. Milhouse, shown here, can been see celebrating with his wife and daughter.

For many, Milhouses's victory marks the end of a combative and derisive era in the NPP party lead by the ex Governor Rossello. With his defeat, Rossello has already ceded the presidency of the NPP and is rumored to resign as Senator. Rumor also has it that Rossello has already left the island, to which I say good riddance. Let the healing begin.

So goes a nation

I often look to parallels between what happens in the United States and what eventually happens in Puerto Rico. This applies technologically, as well as culturally. So your wondering .... is there any precedent for having a Simpson's character as a governmental leader? Boy is there ever! Just repeat after me. Beeeeer! Yes, when you get right down to it, haven't been suffering through the Homer administration for the past 7 years? A gasp is heard throughout the land! The crowd collectively says: "But look how bad of a job Homer has done in the United States, is this what we can look forward to from Milhouse?" Good question.

In an excerpt from Wikipedia, which is scarily prescient:

"Despite being considered a nerd, Milhouse is of average intelligence but has poor social skills. He is also very gullible, thus he is constantly led into trouble by the mischievous Bart, who is not shy about taking advantage of his naive and trusting friend. Homer is often heard calling him "Bart's weird friend" or "that little wiener"."
Which brings up a couple of intrgueing questions. First, who is Milhouse's friend that will lead him into trouble? And second, is "Let's put a little wiener in the Forteleza" a good campaign slogan? In the end, we'll see if Milhouse is victorious in gaining office and if so, (which my early prediction sees happening) we'll see how much damage a lactose intolerant, Italian speaking, and skilled Vespa rider can do.

If we're going to finish the analogy Bart would have to be Cheney. Or at least one of the Bush twins. Either way, I'm sure it will be an American. You can't just walk out of Congress without someone shady following you.

Anyways, I linked to this post in my blog, thought you'd like to know. :)

I agree with Speaking Boricua: Bart would definitely be Cheney (although Bart doesn't suck the light out of every room he's in, or cause dogs to bark nervously in his presence). ;-)

Pay close attention to what fortuño does in his first 30 days. If he keeps a lot of oldtimer Rosellistas around him, expect the same level of incompetence and corruption. Anyway, whomever wins November I hope they win it all. This cogovernment mess is retarded.
Also looking at the whole picture, Democracy really sucks, it truly is for ancient Greeks only! Look at Jose Aponte and Shatz numbers!

Hey there!
I don't know if it has been done yet, but how about emailing FOX and showing them how Fortuño and Milhouse are one in the same (atleast in looks). We would have something funny to look forward too during elections in November.

Fortuno really looks like Milhouse:
