As his talk show quickly gains popularity nationwide, Homer becomes the spokesperson for the Gravy Movement and the voice of America's newest political party. But when ill-informed Homer is asked to select the next Republican nominee for President and officially endorses right-wing rock star Ted Nugent, Marge and Lisa worry that Homer's opinion and influence might be more powerful than he realizes.

Not the best,but not the worst of this season so far,
1 August 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Politically Inept,With Homer Simpson is a decent Simpsons episode,its not the best Season 23 has given us so far (that being The Book Job and Holidays Of Futures Passed) but its not the worst either (that being Replaceable You,in my opinion).The episode had a funny,different,storyline but it was all clearly showing what the writers opinion on politics is and not showing us the two different sides.I enjoyed Homers speeches on Gut Check With Homer Simpson and his speech on the airplane at the beginning,however,I did not appreciate Ted Nugents appearance,he seemed just thrown into the end of the episode just so they could have another guest appearance.

Homer becomes the host of a political show,Gut Check With Homer Simpson,after an inspirational speech on an airplane goes viral.His family disagree with what Homers doing,and he ends up picking Ted Nygent as a republican nominee for president.
