No joke: Guatemalan comedian wins presidency in landslide

Third World silliness…

Former TV comedian Jimmy Morales, who has no experience in government, won Guatemala’s presidential election in a landslide on Sunday after a corruption scandal toppled the last president and stoked outrage with the political establishment.

The headquarters of Morales’ National Convergence Front (FCN) party erupted in a celebration with live music and dozens of early revelers.

A political outsider promising clean government, Morales had 72.4 percent of the vote with returns in from 70 percent of polling stations, well ahead of former first lady Sandra Torres, who had around 27.6 percent.

Funny. 🙂
