Yes, Homer Simpson, despite the message, is quite amusing in this episode. Less amusing, however, is the attitude of "The Simpson's" producer that it is somehow only Republicans engaging in vote fraud when the Democrats perpetrate such activity on a mass scale. Here is a report on this episode by the TV Guy in the Orlando Sentinel:
Homer Simpson a Barack Obama supporter?
Yes, it's true.
"He says it's time for change. He's going to vote Obama," executive producer Al Jean says.
But it's the annual "Treehouse of Horror" episode of "The Simpsons," and the machine repeatedly gives Homer's vote to John McCain. Finally, the voting machine tries to kill Homer.
The short skit is not an Obama endorsement, but a commentary on irregularities in the voting system, Jean says. The episode will air Nov. 2 on Fox, two days before the election.
"The Simpsons" starts its 20th season this weekend. Jean also says the cast has been signed for four more years, including the coming one.
I guess Al Jean never heard of Obama's own ACORN organization whose specialty is vote fraud on a mass scale. So let us overlook all the evidence of vote fraud by Democrats and lay the blame on Republicans as Jean has done in this Simpsons episode. Oh, and one more beef I have with Al Jean from the same report:
Jean worked on the Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios in Orlando. "I thought it exceeded what I hoped for," he says. "The ride is fantastic." He's especially proud of the way the show's writers paid attention to detail with little references.
Yeah, the plunges on that Simpsons Ride are so realistic that I came close to losing a couple of cheeseburgers while riding it last July. Anyway, great job on the ride Al, and I do wished you had paid more attention to the detail of mass Democrat vote fraud in that November 2 Simpsons episode.
