Ecuador officials reject donkey as candidate

QUITO, Ecuador (AP) The demand of dozens of citizens has been denied in the Ecuadorean city of Guayaquil: There will be no jackass running for the legislature.

At least 40 people paraded their candidate through the city's streets to the electoral council offices. Mr. Burro even wore a tie. But officials refused to even let them in the door on Thursday, even though backers had dummied up a mock voter registration card showing the candidate's photo superimposed on a man wearing a business suit.

Personally, I'd rather have the 4-legged ass than the 2-legged jackasses running around Congress.

1. Too bad we don't reject jackasses here.

I'm with you, the 2-legged ones cause more problems.

I suppose that they were afraid that this donkey would actually win if it got on the ballot.
