Barack Obama Is the Mayor of Brazil

In Brazil - where the waxing counts - politicians have taken advantage of a little-known loophole which stipulates that candidates may run under any name they so choose. As many as six (6) candidates throughout Brazil, running for various offices, have opted to run as..... Barack Obama.



It's not clear, however, if this strategy will work. There is nothing to suggest that making up a fake name, or pseudonym, gets anyone anywhere. These candidates would be wise to fake the popularity and platform of Barack Obama, but maybe not the elitist, secret Muslim part.

Come to think of it, all those parameters are probably too long to fit on a ballot line. Better to take the good with the bad. Barack Obama it is... for Brazil anyway.
