Krusty the Clown and the Miers Nomination

Rod Dreher hits it out of the park at The Corner:

There is no event that cannot be related to an episode of “The Simpsons.” The freak-out among social conservatives about the Miers nomination reminds me of the “Kamp Krusty” episode, truly one of the all-time greats.

You’ll recall that Bart and Lisa spend a summer at Kamp Krusty, which is gruesome, ghastly and horrible in about a million different ways.But Bart refuses to believe it, because to have done so would mean having to question his faith in his hero, Krusty the Klown.

But when the camp leaders try to pass Barney the Drunk off as Krusty, Bart cracks. He spouts:

“I’ve been scorched by Krusty before. I got a rapid heartbeat from his Krusty brand vitamins, my Krusty Kalculator didn’t have a seven or an eight, and Krusty’s autobiography was self-serving with many glaring omissions. But this time, he’s gone too far!”

  1. It is a perfect analogy because watching the simpsons you have to wonder why exactly it took bart so long to realize how miserably Krusty uses people.

    Of course at the end of the episode Krusty breaks down, accepts responsibility, and takes the kids for a good time in Tiujana. Any bets as to whether Bush fesses up?

  2. Krusty only breaks down and accepts responsibility after the kids are victorious in a violent revolution. What are you suggesting, Tlaloc?

    Heh. I hadn’t even considered that part of it.

    “Top administration officials are officially missing and presumed scared.”
