my Brazilian roommate and his brother are ECSTATIC about this. They think it's the best thing to happen to Brazilian politics since hot wax was invented.
"So who is this guy?" I asked
"He has like four teeth. That's his thing," one of 'em said. "OH and he had that really funny song in the 1990s. What was it called. I don't know. But it was really funny. That's when he was popular."
"He's REALLY dumb," said one of 'em. "He can't read. He doesn't speak Portuguese very well, it sounds to other people like he's maybe a just little bit retarded."
"So he's like Brazil's Krusty the Clown?" I asked
"Yeah that's actually a pretty good way to describe him. I'm gonna vote for him for PRESIDENTE."
