"Two Bad Neighbors" portrays how even a President can be brought down to the level of a joke.
5 June 2011 | by (Planet Namek) – See all my reviews

This episode showcases the level of stupidity one person can have... in this case pertaining to the idiocy that is the character of President George Bush. Not only does Bush bring himself down to Homer's level to fight and bicker with him, but is bested by Homer and loses against him on numerous occasions. Basically, Bart screws up Bush's memoirs, resulting in the president to get ticked off and slap Bart on the buttock. Bart ends up complaining to his dad... and the scuffle between Homer and Bush starts. Homer stands outside Bush's house and rings his bell... he places two cardboard cut-outs of what are supposed to be idiotic replicas of Jeb Bush and George W. Bush, Bush's equally moronic sons. Bush is so stupid, he easily falls for the prank and opens the door... getting his hair colored rainbow as a paint bucket spilled on top of his head. Bush goes over to Homer's lawn and begins driving around on the lawn, spraying dirt all over and making a mess. Then, he leaves to return home... and notices Homer in a sewer. The two begin to fight and Homer seems to get the better of him, beating the life out of him. Gorbachev comes to visit Bush and sees him brought down to the level of a doofus and laughs as Bush is forced to apologize to Homer. Bush then leaves the town and President Ford moves in... who seems to get along well with Homer. Awesome writing; details just how moronic some people are in life... be it a president or a regular guy.
