Simpsons Quote of the Day

It's election season, so here's some world-class pandering for votes to inspire candidates everywhere.  Springfield Elementary's school band loses to Ogdenville in the state band competition, but Lisa is peeved because the Ogdenville band used red-white-and-blue glow sticks to sway the judges, which violated the rule against visual aids. when no one listens to her complaints, Lisa writes to then-President Clinton... who shows up on the family's doorstep...
Marge: "President Clinton?"
Clinton: "Yeah. Hi. I'm here to see Lisa Simpson."
Lisa: (in shock) "You read my letter?"
Clinton: "Much of it, yeah. And those glow sticks were wrong, very wrong, so I personally overturned the results of that band contest. Congratulations." (Clinton hands Lisa a plaque)
Lisa: (in delighted surprise) "Thank you, Mr. President."
Clinton: "No, thank you, Lisa, for teaching kids everywhere a valuable lesson: If things don't go your way, just keep complaining until your dreams come true."
Marge: "That's a pretty lousy lesson."
Clinton: "Hey, I'm a pretty lousy president."
