In this loose parody of the musical ''Evita'', Lisa is elected Student Body president, but is unaware that the school staff plans to use her to their own ends.
!!''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode “The President Wore Pearls” provides examples of the following tropes:

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: On a similar vein to GradeSchoolCEO being unrealistic, there is no real way whatsoever that Skinner's plan of using Lisa as the FallGuy for his corner cutting would fly in real life-school presidents ''cannot'' do anything regarding the manipulation of school funding (especially the removal of classes). Of course, [[CrapsackWorld Springfield]] runs on the RuleOfFunny.
* AdamWesting: Controversial documentary maker and Simpsons fan Creator/MichaelMoore, who has something of an appetite for accusations of factual flippancy, has a ten-second cameo appearance as himself, introduced as a “professional butt-in-ski” to offer rhetorical support to Lisa’s student strike. He rather readily admits to Kent Brockman that he found his claim that “kids who don’t have music and art are ten times more likely to fail in life and appear in one of [his] movies” from this source: “{{Your mo|m}}ther!” He also provides extensive commentary about the episode on the Season 15 DVD.
* BlatantLies: [[OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope On advise from their lawyers]], the people responsible for the episode swear they have never heard of a musical based on the life of Eva Perón.
* CuttingCorners: Skinner decides to do just that, removing various study subjects and making Lisa the [[FallGuy fall girl]] for the deed.
* {{Dissimile}}: Marge compares Lisa, once installed as president, to “Geraldine Ferraro … except she lost.”
* MusicalEpisode.
* NeverASelfMadeWoman: When Marge saw how Lisa was dressed-up, she said Lisa looked successful and compared her to "the wife of a businessman".
* SarcasmBlind: Marge as Bart sarcastically complimented Lisa for her actions as Student Council President.
* ShoutOut: One of the songs has Lisa saying "Let's [[MaryKateAndAshleyOlsen Olsen-twin]] me".
* VillainSong: Well, partially. During Lisa's big number, we get snippets of "Evil Plan" sung by Skinner revealing his true intent to manipulate her.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Skinner wants to lower Springfield Elementary’s budget. A worthy endeavor, that. How does he plan to carry this out? By removing gym, music and art from the school’s curriculum. [[SarcasmMode Right, that won’t hurt the kids at all.]]
