* HalfwayPlotSwitch and RandomEventsPlot: It started with Bart going deaf from a bad innoculation and got hopelessly lost in heavy-handed anti-Republican sentiment.

* MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting: The whole episode is a satire of post-9/11 American patriotism, taking specific potshots at the American Republican Party. Despite the fact that the show has often mocked the United States and both Democrats and Republicans quite some Americans were not amused. Which is odd, because near the end of the episode The Simpsons do migrate back to the USA, because they miss it, despite everything that happened.

The episode was universally panned by fans for its mean-spirited humor, disjointed storyline, and subtle-like-a-Louisville-slugger-to-the-back-of-the-head political satire. It has routinely ranked highly in lists of worst Simpsons episodes ever made, finishing in the top spot in 2009 and 3rd in 2011, with only season 11's "Kill the Alligator and Run" and season 21's "The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed"[[note]]the episode where The Simpsons go to Jerusalem on a religious trip and Homer deludes himself into thinking he's the Messiah after suffering from dehyrdation[[/note]] above it, though somehow it's manages to be better (or worse) than "Homer vs. Dignity" and "Saddlesore Galactica".
