Hope everyone enjoyed the little mental vacation with Homer yesterday! Actually, being an animated character, he would be the ultimate in a manageable Presidential Candidate. You could turn off and on his Homerisms (read Bushisms) at will. The perfect pratfall or verbal gaffe at the perfect time to instill maximum sympathy for him as relatively honest, sort of hard working, average guy who just happens to be president of the US. Hmmm…what is that lump in Bush’s back?
Homer could have a heck of a campaign promise/slogan, “A nuclear power plant in every city, and a donut in every break room!” But, are we ready to commit to having Bart Simpson as chief executive in a few years? That does seem to be a new American trend towards legacy where the son attempts to follow in the father’s footsteps and… D’oh!!!
