The Simpsons start out by going to the dentist, then going out for ice cream afterward. Homer happens to buy the 1,000,000th ice cream cone that the store sold and he shows up on Smartline. But things get bad when Homer spills coffee on Brockman's pants and he utters a terrible swear word. After Ned Flanders reveals this curse, Brockman is downsized, fired, and Channel 6 loses $10,000,000. With nowhere else to go, Brockman stays at the Simpsons house, and with the help of Lisa, they reveal the secrets of liberals on a YouTube broadcast. Eventually, Brockman is rehired.

Bad Politics
29 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode paints an incredibly false and shamefully misleading version of the modern political landscape. Republican news and politicians are shown as diabolical censors and the liberals look like they've been oppressed. This Simpsons episode was not comedic or clever. It might as well have been an ad for the Democratic Party.

It seemed like this episode was parodying the CBS firing Dan Rather because of his news story against President Bush using false documents. But guess what? CBS is known to be quite left leaning. It's wrong to blame that on the right.

How exactly is the left being stifled? PBS and NPR are so left wing they would make Huge Chavez call for Adam Smith. And these outlets are run by the US government!

This episode shows liberals being thrown in jail for disagreeing with the country's aims. This has NEVER happened in our country's recent past.

But this is what liberals do best. They love to paint themselves as oppressed when they are the ones misleading the public about a proud and storied political party. And by falsely claiming they are the victims and demonizing the GOP they are really the ones being weird - saying that anyone who disagrees with THEM are Nazi like Gestapo jail wardens.

Get away from political commentary and go back to the funny, Simpsons writers. Or stump for the Democrats on your own time.
