* SelfServingMemory: Bush finishes his memoir by claiming that "since [he'd] achieved all [his] goals as President in one term, there was no need for a second." In reality, Bush sought to be re-elected but was defeated by UsefulNotes/BillClinton.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Both Bush and Ford are shown with Secret Service agents, since per the Former Presidents Act of 1958, every ex-President is entitled to lifetime Secret Service protection (provided they weren't impeached). However, Bush, and Ford driving are inaccurate, since an ex-President would not be allowed to drive a car themselves in the real life; also when Homer goes to confront Bush, Bush asks the agents to stand down, which would never happen in real life, when the Secret Service would keep Homer at an arm's length from Bush.

* TwoDecadesBehind: George Bush isn't quite on par with the modern-day world, such as using a typewriter to write his memoirs instead of a computer and being perplexed by Krusty Burger's drive-thru menu.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Some see this story as a Spiritual Predecessor to Season 8's "Homer's Enemy" as a story about a "normal" person (UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush / Frank Grimes) placed into the absurd world of Springfield, where he eventually comes into conflict with Homer, becoming declared enemies.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: This episode was based on one of the writers actually playing pranks on George H.W. Bush as a kid and wasn't meant to be a political attack on him. However, since George H.W. Bush and Barbara criticized ''TheSimpsons'' during its early years for contributing to the alleged downfall of society, a lot of viewers have stated that this episode had political undertones.
