I just saw one of the best episodes of The Simpsons I’ve seen in a while–Politically Inept, with Homer Simpson. The basic plot is that Homer becomes a Tea Party Talking Head. But the best part, is that Homer has (what he thinks is) a dream where James Madison takes him to Independence Hall, shows him the Framers drafting the Constitution, and tells him not to pervert it!
Then the Framers bounce Homer in what can only be described as a Constitution trampoline, and as he is flying up, Homer goes, “Congress has the power to lay and collect taxes?”
It was pure awesomeness.
And they recreated half-way decently the Christy painting of the Signing of the Constitution on 9/17/1787.
The episode already expired from Hulu. A clip is available here.
