President Obama may have nabbed New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s coveted endorsement today, but Mitt Romney shouldn’t be too worried. Why? Well, because the GOP candidate has Springfield’s richest resident on his side: Mr. Burns.
In a preview for this Sunday’s episode of The Simpsons, Mr. Burns says that “there is only one thing that might deny us the presidency which is the god given property of the Republican party.”
Smithers has a few ideas of what that might be — the 47% tape, the empty chair, the Cayman Islands, the $10,000 bet — but it turns out that the election is all about dogs.
Burns calls in a dog and, with the help of a translator, learns that Sheamus liked being strapped to the hood of Mitt Romney’s car.
And if that isn’t enough proof to show that Mitt Romney should be the next President of the United States, Mr. Burns makes the dog decide between Mitt Romney’s all-American steak and President Obama’s healthy White House garden vegetables. The dog ends up jumping out the window, but it’s close enough to call it an endorsement.
Here’s the video from The Simpsons.
This isn’t the first time that Mitt Romney has been compared to Mr. Burns. After the GOP candidate put a $10,000 bet on the table during one of the Republican debates earlier this year, MAD Magazine created a “who said it game” for The Simpsons greatest villain (with the exception of Hank Scorpio) and Mitt Romney.
