As surreal as the last 18 months of presidential campaigning in the U.S. have been, the trophy for Weirdest Election goes to Brazil. Candidates are allowed to invent names which they can place on the ballot. There were numerous "Barack Obama" candidates (who lost) along with other losers, like "Father Christmas". Other names on ballots included:
"Other candidates called themselves Cattle Ana, Jeep Johnny, Big Charlie Knives, Jorge Bushi, Chico Bin Laden, DJ Saddam, King of the Cuckolds, and Kung Fu Fatty."
I confess, I might just vote for someone who could become "Governor Kung Fu Fatty".
