Video: Homer Simpson votin’ for Obama

posted at 11:10 am on October 2, 2008 by Allahpundit

It appears to be real, although I’m not sure how it leaked: The producers were saving it for November 2, two days before the election. Anyone surprised?

He’s right about Ohio, though.

Another good reason to love South Park.

Can’t see Matt or Trey campaigning for Obama.

I know, I know, for years people have LOVED this show!
Never understood it.
NOW I understand WHY.

Halloween specials aren’t canon.

Before anyone thinks about boycotting the Simpsons, I offer two points:

1) Halloween specials fall outside of “Simpsons reality”, e.g. people sometimes behave differently, can be different people all together, there supernatural possibilities, main characters can die, etc.

2) Homer is an idiot, so his vote for Obama should not surprise or offend anyone.

HA-HA! We can count on American Dad to do the right thing.

Yes, but for the wrong reasons. Seth McFarlane is a flaming liberal who brutally mocks conservatives and conservative ideals.

And for some reason, be bitterly hates the disabled.

I’m sure if “Duffman” was running, Homer would be voting for him. Probably even be a campaign volunteer.

In other words, when McCain wins, it will have been because of electronic ballot fraud?

D’oh!

profitsbeard on October 2, 2008 at 6:20 PM

Watch Futurama! It’s funnier and (thus far at least) lacks the political element that Groening insists on pushing into the Simpsons. Bender would vote McCain, I’d bet.

So, how many times is Lisa voting and in how many districts?

And the show should have been cancelled about 7 years ago. They can’t even get it up for their showcase Halloween shows, let alone the regular, Sunday shows.

Don’t take it too seriously, he started off by saying he wanted to vote for anyone who took money away from libraries, then promptly voted for Obama. Kinda says it all.

For the past 4 years my Fantasy Football team has been called the Isotopes. Homer was my team mascot.

He has now been summarily sacked. The team name has been changed to the ManBearPigs.

Take that Mr. Groening!

Maybe Obama can provide the change this show needs. Humor. That would be a nice change.

TechieNotTrekkie on October 2, 2008 at 10:44 PM

Dang! So much for Homer Simpson! But, he does act like a Liberal.

sheebe on October 3, 2008 at 12:29 AM

Hey let’s hope this episode is true.

John Mccain rigged the primaries against Huck (think Washington State)….let’s hope he knows how to do it in the general also.
