Homer Simpson to Endorse Obama



Barack Obama is set to receive an endorsement—sort of.

The support will reportedly come from iconic cartoon character Homer Simpson.

In an upcoming episode of the Fox animated series, which is scheduled to be aired two days prior to the election, Bart’s dad will explain his support for the Dem candidate.

“Obama cares about people like me,” Homer declares. “I haven’t been blessed with intelligence, a strong work-ethic, or sound moral judgment. But I have needs. An Obama administration will make it easier for guys like me to get what we need.”


Homer attempts to vote using an electronic voting machine.

“It's time for a change,” he says as he repeatedly pushes the Obama button on the machine. But instead of votes for Obama, the machine indicates half a dozen votes for John McCain.

Ultimately the voting machine devours Homer whole, while he screams, “This can't happen in America.”

If McCain wins the election, don’t be surprised if Dems use the “machine ate my hubby” excuse to launch a lawsuit.
