YMMV: The Simpsons S 9 E 22 Trash Of The Titans
- Values Resonance: This episode still remains relevant in many ways. Besides its Green Aesop (which Word of God says was unintentional), the episode seems like a satire of the Tea Party when viewed today without context, as Homer spews angry rhetoric at a respected politician with little thought of how he would do better if elected, and after being elected, messes up so horribly everyone hates him. Ray Patterson's lines "Nobody wants to hear the nonsensical ravings of a loudmouthed malcontent!" and "the American people have never tolerated incompetence from its elected officials." hit harder than ever in light of how badly-received the Tea Party-dominated US Congress has been, receiving the lowest approval rating of all time in 2013.
