Confused by ‘fiscal cliff’ debate? Allow Montgomery Burns to explain

Although he’s still reeling by the defeat of Mitt Romney — hey, he didn’t heed valuable advice — C. Montgomery Burns pulls himself together to deliver a helpful explanation of the “fiscal cliff” from within the ominous-looking headquarters of the Springfield Republican Party.

“Think of the economy as a car and the rich man as the driver,” he offers in a new Simpsons promo. “If you don’t give the driver all the money, he’ll drive you over the cliff. It’s just common sense.”

Watch the video below. New episodes of The Simpsons air Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.



Wow. Not that I am on the other side, but it’s shocking to see how utterly partisan these shorts have been.

Hmmm… you say that like it’s a bad thing…

It is. You can’t blame just one side for the mess that this country is in, no matter what your political philosophy is.

heh. I like the immediate partisan reply to Simon’s post.
