HOP ON THE WIGGUM-WAGON AS RALPH WIGGUM ANNOUNCES HIS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDACY ON "THE SIMPSONS" SUNDAY, JANUARY 6, ON FOX

Jon Stewart and Dan Rather Make Guest-Voice Appearances

After Springfield becomes the first city in the nation to hold a presidential primary election, excitement builds as reporters from around the country, including Jon Stewart and Dan Rather, descend upon Springfield to cover the debates. When the candidates turn out to be less than compelling, Kent Brockman announces an unexpected turn of events: Springfield voters rejected all of the candidates and embraced a write-in: notorious bed-wetter Ralph Wiggum.

With Ralph as the new presidential front-runner, Republican and Democratic party leaders fight to win him over as their candidate. Find out if Ralph can make the leap from Sesame Street to Pennsylvania Avenue on the "E Pluribus Wiggum" episode of THE SIMPSONS Sunday, Jan. 6 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Ralph Wiggum's Political Platforms:

Immigration � "Stranger danger!"

Government Spending � "I only have this much moneys."

Party Politics � "Everyone is invited to my party!"

Slogan � "I Dig the Wig"

Ethics � "I'm Ralph Wiggum and I've been a good boy."

Political Appointments � Bart Simpson as the Secretary of Indian Burns and Lisa Simpson as his First Ladle

Foreign Relations � "When we're mad we'll use our words. Then the rest of the world will play nice with us. And the only boom-booms will be in our pants."
