Wow...is this show ever LATE with this reference. I'm pretty sure Glenn Beck's 15 minutes were up months ago and the Tea Party may be influential and batshit crazy, but they're also a dated reference. Everyone knows that the Occupy movement is the latest influential and batshit crazy reference to ride these days!

This show's often at its worst when it steers political, which is something that can be said for a lot of sitcoms. This one's no exception and this episode harkened back to the "Jerkass Homer" era that turned so many people off to this show in the first place.

It's an easy thumbs down for me...but MAN, does Ted Nugent come close to saving this one...

I agree about the general political aspects of The Simpsons (though the digs at Fox News are generally funny, especially when Krusty was running for office), but this one fell flat. Nugent was awesome, but for some reason it felt like they just sped through this storyline and nothing had much time to sink in.
