VIDEO: The Simpsons' Montgomery Burns Endorses Mitt Romney
With the election a few days away, President Barack Obama received an endorsement from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Republican nominee Mitt Romney earned the backing of The Simpsons' own Montgomery Burns, voiced by Harry Shearer.
The Simpsons’ producers released a video in which Burns, the corrupt, often murderous, always villainous character on the animated Fox show created by Matt Groening, endorses Romney despite a series of mistakes made by his campaign, such as Romney’s infamous 47% remark or his refusal to release tax returns that “Wesley Snipes would call suspicious.” Burns tries to convince viewers that by strapping Seamus, the Romney family dog, to the top of the car, Romney was allowing Seamus to see more of our country and its natural resources that are “ripe for drilling, mining and exploiting.”
This is the second mock endorsement video to be released this week in “support” of Romney. Earlier this week, Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon released a video in which he explained that a Romney presidency would lead to a zombie apocalypse.
