The only "Simpsons" series character whose name was changed for the movie was Austrian-born action star Rainer Wolfcastle, who goes by the name of President Schwarzenegger.
This is satire, I think. There are nine Republican contenders for president and many more in the party looking for a rock-star candidate.
Is it Rudy Giuliani, a.k.a. the Mayor of Terror Town? Mitt Romney, who bears a spooky resemblance to CBS CEO Leslie Moonves? Tom Tancredo or Tommy Thompson, both of whose names would restore alliteration to the White House for the first time since the Reagan era?
I woke up early Sunday morning to watch the GOP contenders debate on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos," live from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Given the hour (8 a.m.), it felt a bit like going to church, from what I've heard about going to church. For the occasion, Stephanopoulos seemed to have lowered his hair so that he looked like one of those young-turk Madison Avenue smoothies on AMC's great new drama, "Mad Men."
But there was plenty of "Mad Men" hair to go around (no offense, Sen. McCain, Rep. Tancredo, Gov. Thompson and Mayor of Terror Town). Stephanopoulos, that hopeless wonk, introduced the candidates according to how an ABC News/Washington Post poll said they were faring in Iowa, from first (Romney) to last (Duncan Hunter, who nevertheless had the best tie).

L.A.Times, eh? I assume this is posted for intelligence research, as it is always good to know what the enemy is thinking.
This is the pap that passes for sarcastic wit among the simpletons who run the media.
Mad Men is a fairly entertaining show, this article really isn’t.
That debate was a snoozer Mitt had a good dline, Ron Paul jumped the whale shark (again) and Rudy was the same Rudy.
Supposedly Huckabee impressed the most.
I was there and actually Brownback probably did the best in the debate. He nailed Romney on saying he is pro-life one moment and then in front of a different crowd saying he supports positions that are not pro-life (tax payer funded abortion etc).
Rudy was very funny from time to time but almost fell off the stage at the end, he probably has a nasty bruise on his leg from the incident.
Paul is a freak, it is the first time I have been in a debate room of this caliber and had a debater booed heavily.
