This will have Tom direct and its called Patriot. The current plan is to have the entire Lane family be involved including Teri Hatcher as Lois' mom. Another rumor is Ollie might out himself to the world and Clark will offically give the League its march order or at least its name. I think there are too many rumors about the episode, but Tom has said its going to be a "BIG" episode which in Smallville talk means we inch closer to something cool then the next episode pussy out. I wonder if a certain ring will be mentioned or a black guy in swim wear will appear? Allyson Hanning will always be my pick for anything to do with red heads.
I agree and he has a fair number of Republicans and conservatives on his show. And really, the satire would fit in well, maybe not as his character, and since he (and Stewart) have satirized and mocked both sides it should be fine.
