Do we have this already?

When a small scale election is treated like a matter of national importance, either by the people running or the entire school/association/town. Will often feature many take thats at politics. The set-up will almost always feature three candidates: one of the main cast, either another main cast member or the rival (expect them to be large hams), and a "joke candidate" who lacks both the charisma of the rival and the ambition of the protagonist. Of course, 99% of the time, the third candidate wins; either by default (the other two somehow get disqualified or withdraw) or simply because their vicious mudslinging ended up alienating them to the voters.
