We start out this episode with some good news for Leslie's campaign: Thanks to Ben's tireless, brilliant, sexy little hummingbird work as campaign manager, Leslie is now gaining on Bobby Newport, so says a poll on The Final Word with Perd. Man, have I missed Perd. When will we get a spinoff show about a small-town news journalist who is also Perd?! I digress. The other candidates, Brandi Maxxxx, Fester Trim, and Manrico Della Rossa, are all trailing far behind.
