A clown was elected to Brazil's parliament with 1.3 million votes
BBC News - No joke as Brazil clown tops votes for Congress
A friend pointed me at this last night and wondered if we could do something similar in the next election in Ireland. Just completely rip the arse out of it. Put up candidates claiming to be Jesus, Allah, Krishna etc and demand that anyone who complains be prosecuted under Dermo's Blaspemy law. Have a guy in a Batman suit as the Justice Spokesman. You get the idea. Try to get the message across that we don't actually need these self-appointed self-serving parasite idiots in the political class, and if they are all talking complete fantasy anyway why not actually elect fantasy TDs?
