Hmm, an all-too-late satire of Glenn Beck and the Tea Party movement. While Ted Nugent is awesome in his own right and seems appropriate for Homer to nominate for president, he just seems like the laziest choice possible. Yes Ted's nuts, Republican, and has been endorsed by such figures before, but you know what would be more clever? ANYONE ELSE.
When Homer's complaints about how he was treated at the airport become an online sensation, and his subsequent political talk show, Gut Check with Homer Simpson, becomes equally as popular nationwide, Homer is asked who should run against Obama in 2012 - and he suggests Ted Nugent
Yeah, sorry for the duplicate episode entry, I hit "Start Topic" before I could type in the episode name.
ETA: "Tintin did not sucksuck." That couch gag was great, too. Victorian Clue? Springfieldton Abbey?
Oh look, airline jokes. Homer pushing his suitcase so hard it slid out of the plane was a great visual gag. "I have to go to the bathroom." "Well, you should have thought of that before consuming the fluids you need to live."
I liked the tags Bart used to tag his videos of Homer: "Fat," "Stupid," "Classic Simpsons," and "Baby Riding Kitten Riding Penguin."
Loved the Fox News ticker: "Satan tweets support to Rick Santorum." "Derek Jeter, George Clooney Divide up World's Women." "Biden to Congress: Compared to you, me am smart."
I actually liked Homer's rants on his new show. How the hell do Glenn Beck's rants make rational sense when spoken by Homer? Loved that the heads on his Mount Rushmore of Evil include Patty & Selma.
Ahh, good to see the Republican HQ again. Liked how they crossed out Cain and Bachmann, which managed to fit in with Burns' "Pick which white male you'd like to see as president" line.
Lisa: "Ted Nugent? He's a right wing nut job who likes everything I hate."
Bart: "Is there anyone more awesomer?"
Ted Nugent, while the lazy/cliche choice, was still freaking awesome. "Antlers aint meat." Of course Ned's a fan, as long as he isn't a Mormon.
I really liked the dream with Mozart, er, James Madison. I thought the "lesson" that he thought Homer was reaching on the preachy side...until we found out it was a ruse by the family. Dick move, yes, but it got Homer to realize that this was a bad idea
"This episode really meandered with a plot that was done better by South Park!" Screw you, rational voice in my head, it was Ted Nugent.
