Rule you like a King

Sideshow Bob

It’s midterm elections here in California, and as the early results show, the Republican party is back in force. I can’t help but think of the line by SideShow Bob from The Simpsons, episode 2F02, “SideShow Bob Roberts“:

…you need me, Springfield.  Your guilty conscience may force you to vote Democratic, but deep down inside you secretly long for a cold-hearted Republican to lower taxes, brutalize criminals, and rule you like a king.  That’s why I did this: to protect you from yourselves.

That says it all and then some.
