Glenn has gone on record that he is a big fan of “The Simpsons” for their humor and parody – no matter their popularity or political affiliation of the target. So what did he think when the show turned its attention on him?
“You know the great thing about the Simpsons is you can truly, if you are the butt of their joke, you can laugh really hard because you know the next week, they’re going to make fun of the other side just as hard,” Glenn said.
Watch the clip below:
As The Blaze points out, “pay attention to the news ticker, which displays, ‘Gingrich looks forward to win, fourth Wife,’ ‘Rick Perry mistakingly signs order to execute himself’ and ‘Europe puts Greece on eBay.’
Glenn said that the soccer commentary may have come from a bit he actually did on the show once.
“There was somebody who had banned football and we started talking about soccer and I was making fun of almost this very thing. I think this is a direct rip‑off or a wild coincidence, which it could be because I don’t think the Simpsons are necessarily watching me every night,” Glenn said.

Stu said it’s funny because he remembers how people on the right would always get angry when a show would parody conservatives or their cause, but Stu always thought that if they hammered a friend of his and did it well, he would still like them.
“And now that’s actually come true. Like all the shows have actually started specifically hammering my friend and I still like them. So that’s a big statement,” Stu said.
Of course, this is just another example of how wrong the left and the mainstream media can be when they try to pretend that prominent conservative voices like Glenn don’t matter in America. Would a show like The Simpsons, which regularly parodies prominent figures of various affiliations and creeds, bother devoting over 20% of an episode unless their voice mattered?
“The media is constantly talking about how irrelevant you are – which is weird because that’s kind of an odd statement in and of itself that the media’s talking about you being irrelevant – but it’s weird that, what is it now, South Park, The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live, who else am I missing that’s parodied you?” Stu wondered.
Clearly, Glenn and the conservative Tea Party movement are still a strong force to be reckoned with (and in some cases parodied) no matter how much the left would like to close their eyes and pretend they would go away.
Editor’s note: Were you to take Glenn and put him in a comedy cartoon and place him in Middle America – is there any doubt that he would end up as Homer Simpson? And if it was a sitcom, of course he’d be Ron Swanson. Hey, that sounds like a good idea for a blog….
