A former clown who is expected to win a seat in Brazil's congress when the country goes to the polls on Sunday will be prevented from taking office until he passes a test proving that he can read and write, a judge in Sao Paulo has ruled.

Francisco Silva, a circus performer turned TV comedian who is better known by his stage name "Tiririca" - the colloquial Portuguese word for "grumpy" - is accused of being among the one in 10 of his countrymen who are virtually illiterate.

The allegation could prevent him sitting in congress, even though polls suggest that he will win more votes than any other candidate, since (for mostly practical reasons) the Brazilian constitution requires all of the nation's politicians to be able to read. ...link (http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=10676881)

I believe clowns get nasty when thwarted, his opponents are taking their lives in their hands.

I can't support any clown-related political ambitions.

Clowns in politics do not have a great track record.

This explains why you can't get behind the Obama administration... among other reasons.
