Airing soon will be an episode of the Simpsons in which Homer decides that he will cast his vote for Mitt Romney. The episode will air the Sunday after next, October 7 as reported by the CBC. Apparently Homer must be voting in advance polls!
Even though Mitt Romney is charged with accusing 47% of Americans with being lazy, government-dependent oafs he is able to win over cartoon character Homer Simpson even though he describes himself on the appended video clip as a:Homer is a bit puzzled why he has to vote when he thinks that it is the job of the Supreme Court to decide on leaders but he goes ahead anyway. He has no voter ID but when he describes himself the election authority lets him vote since he is white and uneducated.Homer decides against voting for Obama since his wife already keeps telling him to eat healthy and no doubt that is one too many bugging him about that. The clincher is that Obama promised death panels but Homer's ornery grandpa is still kicking.Homer thinks Obamacare is OK and since Romney invented that he eventually decides to vote for Romney. As soon as he votes for Romney he gets to see Romney's tax returns. The returns show that the government paid Romney money for 5 years. Then as befits a Romney voter Homer is outsourced to China where he claims that at least he has a steady job making American flags. You can see the rest of the story on the clip.Some of the many comments are interesting. One reader quips:Another obviously biased Obama supporter predicts:
"40-year-old white guy who didn't go to college and gets all his news from monitors at gas stations."
"Is Homer the fictious character, or is Mitt. How can one be sure?"
Homer Simpson has a better chance of winning this election than Romney.Perhaps this will start a campaign to write-in Homer Simpson for president. I gather cartoon characters often get write-in votes in U.S. elections. At this site, the top write-in candidate is Frosty the Snowman, a seasonal candidate.
