Krusty is willing but lacks confidence and,even after Lisa's campaign has had him successfully elected he is used as a skivvy by other congress-men so that the Simpsons resort to blackmail to achieve their aim.

After Kent Brockman announces that Krusty has won the election, Krusty states that he is a senator. Lisa corrects him by stating that he is actually a "congressman". However Lisa's statement is misleading. Congress is both houses of the US federal legislature. Members of the Senate are called "senators" and members of the House of Representatives, to which Krusty has just been elected, are called "representatives".
