...Starring Barack Obama as Homer Simpson!

From the classic Simpsons episode "Moaning Lisa"...

When straight-A student Lisa Simpson gets in trouble at school (for her chronic depression), Homer is befuddled and at a loss to respond...until finally:

Homer: Bart! Vacuum this floor!
Bart: Hey Man! I didn't do anything wrong!
Homer: In times of trouble you've got to go with what you know. Now hop to it, boy!

And what does Barack Obama do, when he is unable to convince Congressional Democrats to vote for his health care (aka "Career Suicide") bill?

Obama doesn't know how to persuade Stupak Democrats, nervous Blue Dog or red district Democrats, or Kucinich-types who think the Senate version is a sellout. He knows how to deliver applause lines at rallies with lots of college students and union members in the audience. So that's what he's going to do.

Barack Obama, following the logic of Homer Simpson. My God....

The country's in the very best of hands...
