The Simpsons had a bit of fun Sunday night with Fox News and the interminable Republican presidential race.

Homer Simpson becomes America's newest favorite cable news pundit when network executives spy his talent, as an “an ill-informed gas bag that networks cannot get enough of." True, how true. And it's probably just a coincidence I'm sure that Homer's Gut Check! bears a striking resemblance to the Glenn Beck Show.

Later on in the episode, Homer dismisses the six white guys remaining in the Republican race and pines momentarily for Chris Christie, then considers voting for the Democrats because as he says, without a hint of irony: "Maybe I'll vote Democrat. The great thing is, when they get in they act like Republicans." Homer (slash, Glenn Beck) comes to his senses though and instead endorses Ted Nugent.
