Homer Simpson Tries To Vote For Obama, Gets Sucked Into Machine (And Killed)
College OTR ^ | 10/02/2008 | 10/02/2008

Posted on 10/02/2008 10:26:53 AM PDT by nickcarraway

For you students who have been fans of the Simpsons since way back in your Pogs days, you know it goes without saying that Homer Simpson screws up… a lot.

But for once, in this clip, Homer’s blunder is not his fault at all. He did the right thing, he voted for Obama! Alas, the machine wouldn’t let him… instead it changes his vote to McCain every time.

It’d be funny if it didn’t seem eerily plausible. (And just plain eerie, seriously, listen to the opening music.)

As Simpson says, “This doesn’t happen in America, maybe Ohio, but not in America!” Also, maybe Florida, but who's counting?

One can only imagine that this clip comes as a sneak preview to the annual Halloween special, because damn, it’s scary.

Isn’t that the truth! With the PROVEN fraud of Obama’s former employer ACORN it is almost a foregone conclusion that the ones interested in swinging this election through fraud are NOT conservatives!

Well, his vote sure wouldn’t be changed to McCain. If he tried to vote for the latter, though, it could plausibly be changed to Obama.

What’s with all the Freepers who love the Simpsons? To me, the series has often looked very much like Doonesbury reincarnated for the 1990s.

In Ohio, homeless people can vote for Obama without showing any ID. Now, state law requires first-time voters to show ID, but the boards of election, staffed equally by Ds and Rs, don’t care. All’s well in the name of bipartisanship and political correctness, right?

Funny, the last person I would self-identify with is Homer Simpson. Libs don’t seem to have a problem with it. Perhaps it really is a conservative cartoon.

When I see stuff like this, it makes me think we’re headed for another civil war. The left just gets crazier and crazier; paranoia has become their normal style. Maybe watching the X-Files for 10 years does that to you.

The Simpsons hasn't been funny for years. When it was, they made a point of skewering liberals and political correctness, as well as the Republicans who sometimes deserved it. This country is becoming so polarized that it is truly frightening, and it is "open-minded" Liberals who are actively promoting it.

I’m sure they will find a way. Lets see the Media have already established that NOT voting for Obama is Racism. Racism is usually a hate crime so....Now where will they find a work/re-education camp large enough for all the free thinkers?? Very Scarey indeed.

I posted the following to that site:

IRL, the Leftist vote community organizing group ACORN is under investigation for vote fraud in 14 states across the union (that would be out of 58 states, according to 0bama). That's Lefties for you, always projecting onto their political opposition when they are caught breaking the law.

Actually, if you watch the video clip Homer states “I want to vote for president, governor or anything that takes away money from our parks and library.” Homer wants to vote for Obama. Tells me that Homer knows that under Obama administration tax dollars will be sent to Obama’s friends and cronies.

Oh, it's plausible all right. Just not in the way they state.

“He did the right thing, he voted for Obama!”

As Spike Lee said “Always do the RIGHT thing.”

Obama or DIET (according to P.Diddy).

As long as the UN and Jimmy Carter verify the results, who are we to complain.

Getting scary. I think all Freepers needs to unite and move to TX ans join the secession movement.

Check out some of the comments:

“Hmmm... It honestly seems a LOT more plausible that the machine would change the vote into a vote FOR Obama. After all, he is the one who used to work for ACORN, and follows Saul Alinsky’s methods, not to mention being friends with KNOWN COMMUNIST TERRORISTS! How sad that Matt Groening has chosen to push the propaganda of the left. Looks like I’ll be watching something else on Sunday evenings from now on. “

It accepts anonymous comments....I think it needs a Freepin’ ;-)

They can’t be expected to understand the complexities of this election. McCain was one of the few Republicans that the Democrats truly liked, but now that he’s running against Obama, he is Satan Incarnate (or, with the way they openly despise Christians now, maybe they see him as the Second Coming?). He’s basically campaigning as a lamb, but they act like he’s campaigning as a far right lion.

I can't stand how much of a liberal propaganda device the Simpsons has become over the last few years.
It's translated into much less funny episodes, and characters completely twisted from their former, likable selves. Lisa has gone from the wise, kind, charming little girl from the first seasons into an obnoxious, self- righteous, arrogant little brat who always crams her views down everyone's throats and throws a temper tantrum whenever anyone dares to disagree with her, and is portrayed by the show as a HERO for doing so! Ned Flanders has gone from the prudish- yet- friendly guy next door to a mean, brainless zealot who always gets proven wrong in episodes which feature him in a major role, and is now used pretty much exclusively as a way for Groening and the show’s writers to vent their immense hatred of all Christians.
I’m quickly losing my patience with that show.

If it were South Park, Kyle would be an Obama supporter, Stan would be a McCain supporter, and Cartman would be trying to get some of the billions from the bailout. He’d enlist Kenny who’d get killed trying to break through Obama’s black power stooges. Cartman would burst in on Obama and McCain divvying up a bunch of cash in a back room.

I posted this also at that site:

The Democrat Party of 2008 is reprising the role of the pigs in Orwell's Animal Farm, and the soi-disant elitist 0bama has assumed the role of the head pig Napoleon, with a whiff of jackbooted Fascism thrown in. That is "Soooooo-ey Sweet"! Do more drugs...makes voting Left easier.

Hey, wonder if Palin could use the pigs in the Animal Farm reference during the debate tonight?

My wife agrees with you (as I do). She’s disappointed because we used to love the show. We have a DVD collection of Seasons 3-7, back when it was funny and irreverent instead of preachy and intolerant.

The Simpsons collapsed like most comedy shows because the writers from these shows are largely newly minted ivy-league grads.

These grads are huge kool-aid drinkers and are doctrinally liberal.

I had to deal with these retards all the time in school. Fortunately most of the shows these idiots write for get cancelled but lots of times they sneak their way into established shows.

Headed for? It’s been going on at least since ‘68 - and the current situation, regardless of the CRISIS mongers, is nowhere near what was going on in ‘68. It’s all perception.

The joys of the Television Society. Anybody remember when we used to call it the “Boob Tube” - and for good reason?

I guess it became less “boobed” when the circus started being delivered in HD with THX Sound. NOT!
