  1. Depending on how you look at it, I think the Simpsons were a lot nicer to Ford then they were to Bush Sr in that episode. For one thing, Homer actually knows Ford was a president. Also, the Simpsons make Ford out to be a “man’s man” president. he watches football and eats nachos. It’s sort of a fitting tribute to a president that appealed to both the Democrats and Republicans…

  3. Thanks. Great to be back. You know, I’m mostly an Apple-ite, but that Mac blogging software sucked; post evaluating its problems TK. Word Press is much nicer.

    Oh, and Greg: Yeah, the Simpsons were clearly in the Ford camp; in fact, I think they were nicer to him than any president they’ve had on. Maybe Groening’s a secret Ford Republican…
