  • Nothing but one side politics.

    This epsidoe was terriable! I wanted to slap Matt Georin and everyone on The Simpson team for making an episdoe like this. Where do I start. Fox News is the only news channel that not run by liberals so saying its full of lies and bias when CNN,NBC,CBS,MSNBC,ABC and local news channels are all liberal. What the Simpsons said about Fox tells me that they really are parnoid liberal elites who can't handle one news channel thats not liberal. Good lord Republicans have tolerated every news channel I said early for years. Or Lisa pun when she said "Conservative have to win...sometimes" in her sarcastic tone when looking back at history even though the Democrat Party was founded before the Republican Party there have been more Republicans that have served office as president aswell as more Republicans have served more years as president then Democrats(with the exception of FDR because it was WWII and many people back then didn't think it would be wise to switch presidents during a time of war.) This is a sign of bad things to come for The Simpsons which after this epsidoe is a good thing!
  • Krusty is elected to Congress.

    I dont understand again why this episode is hated so very much. I thought it was pretty good especially on that scence on how a bill becomes a law. It was about time that the Simpsons made an episode with satire on incompetent politicians. This episode did not fail to deliever some great humor and jokes and its satire was just priceless. Even tho many of you may not agree with me, I really thought this was a very well done episode. Maybe not my absolute favorite or series classic, but it was a good episode at that. Watch it.
  • Good but its not like Krusty to do this...

    When The Simpsons become fed up with the new flight patterns at the Springfield airport which are sending loud planes over their house all the time, they take a stand and demand action from their congressman. The politician promptly dies as he's hearing their proposal, and the family goes about helping Krusty win his now-vacant House seat and take up their cause in Washington. Once Krusty is installed in power, he wreaks havoc on the U.S. political system – but not without getting a Springfield plane rerouting bill passed. Funny episode, byt a little not like Krusty becoming a politic...
  • Subject of the day: incompetent politicians...

    I can't remember the last time that I laughed so hard while watching a single episode of The Simpsons. Especially in the first part.

    The story begins by an earthquake in the Simpsons' neighborhood. But it's not a quake: all of the airplanes are flying above the houses around. It appears that the main run has been changed. We eventually discover that mayor Quimby changed it because he wanted to hear his wife's voice (a choice he quickly regrets).

    Homer and Marge complain about the situation to the Congress representative, but he dies. So the State needs a new one. Bart suggests Krusty the Clown. The clown accepts and becomes the Republican candidate.

    The first part is incredibly funny. It all begins by a vintage episode of the Three Stooges, followed by a fake FOX promo that Homer eats like chips. It's so special. By doing this (and later by scrolling fake newsroll), FOX has the great capacity of spoofing itself, something that other major networks aren't necessarily able to do.

    The second part is still funny, but it's not as hilarious as in the first one. You may have guessed that Krusty wins the election...

    Then it turns into a fish-out-of-water comedy and into a political satire. Politicians are depicted as incompetent, vote useless and ridiculous laws and scandale-makers.

    A last hilarious moment: Homer can't lead Yogi Bear to the maze exit...
  • Planes are directed directly over the simpsons house

    My family dealt with the same problem as the simpsons in this case with planes flying closely above our house (though not quite as close as the springfield planes) at our old house. Though just because I can relate to this problem doesn't mean I thought the episode was that good. The plot started off well but Krusty being elected for congress was a strange twist. The plot wasn't that sensible, though I did enjoy jokes such as homer's idea of a sacred document and the cheating way to get a bill passed, especially the drinking contest. overall, the humour was good but the plot wasn't terrific.
