You’ve Been Outsourced!

Homer SimpsonThe ad for the new season of The Simpsons is really great. A couple of things stand out.

First, there is Homer’s summation of democracy in America, “Oh man, not another election! Why do we have to choose our leaders? Isn’t that what we have the Supreme Court for?”

One of the best things about The Simpsons has always been the signs in the background. My favorite was a sign at the baseball field that read, “Springfield Savings & Loan: 1903-1991;1992-.” Pretty great. Here we have two political signs:

“Obama: Keep Hoping.”

That is literally the Obama campaign’s message, although (as Mitt Romney would say) inelegantly stated. Here is the other:

“Romney: I Have a House in Your State!”
