Yes, a promotion for the new season, but amusing.
Psychiatrists tell us that jokes/commentary will not be funny at all, not even amusing, without there being a grain of truth in the joke.
They also say that misery is the source of all humor.
Not hard to resolve.
Mitt Romney’s tax returns are due to be leaked any day now.
Romney has done a preemptive release of a summary.
Hi-larious. As Mr. Burns would say.
Now if you think there was one thing that could be leaked by Wikileaks. It would have been Mitt Romney’s tax records. But either Wikileaks doesn’t care. Or they’re more careless guarded than the State Dept’s cables were. And what’s the chances of that?
At least Homer knows who to vote for.
….yes, but the joke (truth) was WHY.
Ah Yea==do you work overtime to miss the boat?
I don’t know where those insane writers get those crazy ideas.
They must read DU and watch Fox News for inspiration.
Blatant pro-obama propaganda posing as satire for the kids. Nice.
No, the Simpsons show does not pose as satire.
It is satire.
Where did you get the pro-Obama stance from the satire?
Homer voted for the right douchebag but then his job was outsourced to China. Funny stuff.
@stormtrooper 651 Not only is the cartoon show *not* “posing as satire for the kids”…it is indeed satire, and it ain’t for children.
With a bit of all Southerners are stupid, racist criminals. Good stuff.
I have lived in the South since birth and the first thing I noticed was a high percentage of Southerners are stupid racist criminals. But those are the ones that go to church.
I am guessing you perceive the request to see Homer’s identification as a dig against racist Southerners.
You are perceptive. The Simpsons is a very good social satire. Unusual for television.
I wish living in Texas were not a social satire.
Not suggesting liberals constantly stereotype tho…
Stupid racist Southerners do not stereotype.
They never mention stupid lazy niggers or liberal loud-mouthed women or atheist college professors that teach science and evolution.
Those damn liberal stereotypers are ruining this country and my preacher told me so.
Stormy–where you getting the Southerners are stupid, racist criminals? I mean, I believe that, but I didn’t see it here. So…. the real question is just what are you projecting? Your own understanding, or what you were told to believe?
I don’t know about the rest of the South, but here in Texas there is a movement by Republicans to require a photo identification in addition to voter registration in order to vote.
Apparently one or two atheist liberals in Texas cast a vote for Obama and the Republicans are convinced there is massive voter fraud going on and it must be stopped.
@orchidcup …Or there is massive voter fraud in the future and it must be prevented before it begins!
I used to wonder why The Simpsons were still around after all this time – turns out it’s a good thing they are! And yay! for Homer – I also do NOT need another female in my life telling me how to live!
The thing about Romney’s tax returns that will bother most people is the size of the write off he can get from his rather staggering level of charitable giving. I have read that Obama was going to “fix” that deduction by reducing the size of the deduction you can get from giving to charity.
Of course that wouldn’t bother Biden because Joe doesn’t do charity. Obama does a fair amount of charity though with him it doesn’t seem to include his relatives on his father’s side. Of course Bill Clinton has never wanted anything to do with his half brother either.
Wonder what Harry Reid and Nancy P. do about charity if anything? For some reason I see those two as being more likely to rob a charity than donate to one.
Romney’s level of charitable giving may seem staggering to you, but that is pocket change for him.
Romney could give away 10 thousand dollars a day and never go broke.
Simpsons hasnt been funny in 15 years.
Is that when you were ten? lol!
I told you all you could get a 50% return in 60 days, now you can still get a 40% return in <50 days. Go to intrade and bet on Obama now.
