How the hell did Zap Brannigan become a captain in the DOOP? Couldn't they tell he was/is incompetent?

Remember how they took him back into DOOP? Leela lied to get rid of him. Everyone probably did that 'till he made it up to DOOP.

And since when is it impossible for incompetent people to have success?  The Peter Principle states that a person will rise to his highest level of incompetentcy.  To make it more real, just look around in politics.

Zapp's secret was revealed in a deleted scene from "Brannigan begin again"  tongue

Zapp: I guess I'll have to sleep myself up again. Kif, wake me when I'm there!"

It is wierd because no one incompitant ever made it up in ranks in military or politics.

Also, he seemed to attack anything and everything whenever he wanted to and the DOOP would make it seem like a great accomplishment.  Trying to make their blunders look like a huge success like many other governments have throughout history *cough*vietnam*cough*

Yes, but we know that Leela is the only women to ever love him, I mean physically.

Unless..., but that gives me some other emotions that are weird and deeply confusing.

The probulator...Zapp probably grew up being told he was a great starship captain/general, got automatic promotions, got every whim indulged... all of which turned him into the pathetic whiny man-boy he is today. Tomorrow. Oh, whenever...

This tread is mostly to speculate how Zap got into the DOOP, it's not really a Zapfest thred.
