Today in Yes, It’s Still Election Day News: we bring you another attempt to add some levity to the political process. While director Joss Whedon endorses Obama because “a vote for Romney is a vote for the zombie apocalypse”, Springfield’s most famous villainous rich guy, Montgomery Burns, sits firmly in the Mitt camp.
Like all things related to The Simpsons, this video isn’t quite as funny as it would have been in, say, 1996. Why? Well, the spot’s writers make their political sensibilities quite obvious throughout, and most of the jokes revolve around the election season’s big, worn-out memes. Enough with the Seamus story already! Still, we respect even half-hearted attempts to bring humor into the joyless world of politics.
Speaking of which, we haven’t seen many genuinely funny anti-Obama spots this year. Anybody?
