With the left-wing of country in mourning due to his perceived inflammatory and dangeroud rhetoric, and the Simpsons' staff being mostly liberal, it captured the feeling perfectly.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* "Clown in the Dumps" parodies the show's LongRunner status by depicting the show still on the air thousands of years in the future. In the 106th century, the Simpsons have degenerated into "The Sampsans", a group of crudely-drawn mutants (animated by Creator/DonHertzfeldt) who mainly communicate by endlessly spouting their {{Catch Phrase}}s.
