* TooDumbToLive: After one of the judges suspects Homer of helping Lisa with her essay she asks him if he's interested in politics or anything for that matter. After Homer shrugs it off with the words: "I don't know" the judge asks him to touch his nose with his eyes closed, which Homer fails to do. ''Twice!''

* ShoutOut: The title is this to ''Film/MrSmithGoesToWashington''. The plot is similar too, with Lisa being a patriotic idealist as she enters Washington, becoming disillusioned when she witnesses the corruption there. Just like Mr. Smith she goes to the Lincoln Memorial to ask him for advice and then uses her talents to criticize the system, which does result in the arrest of the corrupt people she witnessed.

* CorruptPolitician: Bob Arnold. He takes a bribe to demolish the forest that ''inspired'' Lisa's essay, and is willing to allow oil drilling on Teddy Roosevelt's head.

* EagleLand: Zigzagged. The members of government can be corrupt, but Lisa's essay, even though it causes her to lose a contest, is what ends exposing Arnold, showing that people can bring down corrupt forces.
