Homer Simpson thinks it’s time for a change.

Grampa Simpson still likes Ike.

Despite Sarah Palin’s claim to be Miss Joe Six Pack, Homer Simpson is an Obama man. In leaked footed from an episode to air on November 2, Homer votes for Obama (or tries to) but the voting machine repeatedly changes his vote to McCain. When Homer cries in outrage, the machine eats him, drains his lifeblood and spits him out. An “I Voted” sticker is then plastered on his dome.

The Democratic Process ain’t what it used to be.  But then we already knew that.

Still, it’s great to see Matt Groening and Homer at least TRY to have their say.

I only hope that other beer-chugging Homers can do the same come voting day which is to look past race or Sarah Palin’s jugs. (Yesterday I posted two pieces, one titled “McCain Confesses to Dictator Aspirations” which is scary scary scary and the other titled “Nudie Palin Hangs (all) Out in Dive Bar” — needless to say, one of those posts got substantially more hits than the other.)

I’m excited to watch this episode of the Simpsons which has become an “American Institution” since the family made their first appearance on The Tracey Ullman Show in spring of 1987.  I wonder if this Homer Votes episode is their Halloween show?  Most likely… which means it’s gonna be AWE-some.  

This post is dedicated to my friends Vince Cowan & Dwayne Lavigne. Homer voting for Obama is a fine thing indeed. Open up an icy can of Duff. Sho nuff. Vote for Homer! Dop! I mean Obama!
