    Mayoral hopeful Julian Castro acknowledged Wednesday that his twin brother took his place in a parade this week, waving at onlookers who mistook the stand-in for the candidate.

    Castro told The Associated Press he had a conflicting event and didn't intend to deceive anyone when state Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio, boarded the City Council barge in the city's River Parade. "We can't help that we look like each other," said Julian Castro, a council member and leading contender for the mayor's post. <table align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr><td>
    </td></tr></tbody> </table> As many as 250,000 people gathered along the famous River Walk to watch the decorated barges float by on Monday night. Many mistook the state representative for the mayoral hopeful."

    When he was waving, they would say, 'Julian,' and he would say 'No, it's Joaquin,' but you can't really yell at 200,000 people along the route," Julian Castro said.

    Multiple Choice test

    This was an example of:

    1. The tawdry state of politics in America today.

    2. A little dishonest, but whats the use of having a twin with the exact genetic makeup if you can't make use of it once a while.

    3. Cute, but not funny.

    4. A hint for congress to pass a law that you cannot run for president if you are a twin (or higher multiple).

    5. Both 1 and 4

    6. Both 2 and 3
