Good morning, today is Monday, November 5, 2012. Election Day is tomorrow!

Via Mediaite:

In light of Tuesday’s presidential election, tonight’s cold open of Fox cartoon The Simpsons hammered hard at Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, voter ID laws, and uninformed voters who believe President Barack Obama wants to set up “death panels.”

As Homer Simpson entered the Springfield polling place, a white volunteer asked him to show identification because “stopping all Americans from voting is for the protection of all Americans.” When Homer explained to the man that he is a “40-year-old white guy who didn’t go to college and gets all his news from the monitors at gas stations,” he was immediately let in to a voting booth: “In you go!”

Almost a little to close to the truth to be funny, isn't it?
