all groen up!

Seeing that post about how bad and out of touch the Simpsons has gotten is so sad. Like, the new writers haven’t even watched the old eps have they… remember the one that was about the unionized power plant workers striking to protest Burns slashing health care and benefits that described the strikers as heroes and the soulless corporate miser as a “devil” and compared him to the Grinch… good times…!

I mean I’m sure Matt Groening is so sad on top of his huge pile of money but considering that the show was built on Nixon and Reagan-era punk disillusionment with The System, it’s really weird to see how completely inside out the politics behind it are now.
