    • Bart: Well, I, uh, reckon the first thing I should in asking all you wonderful people to vote for me is make promises. I understand anyone running for senator is supposed to do this. And I'd be only too happy to make promises, except for the dirty trick that my most worthy opponent pulled on me. He used up all the promises, he didn't leave me a single one! Well, the only qualification that I have for political office is that I am not a politician. Now, I've been told that the difference between a statesman and a politician is that the statesman keeps his eye on the next generation, and a politician has his eye on the next election. Well, I'm neither a politician nor a statesman, I'm just people, like all of you. But I can tell you this : I'll keep my eye on those politicians down at the state capitol, and if I find any of them in underhanded deals, I will scream like a scalded cougar. And I'm pretty good at spotting underhanded deals.
