Nuclear plant owner C. Mont­gomery Burns, of “The Simp­sons” car­toon fame (or infamy, depend­ing on how you look at it), is back­ing Mitt Rom­ney for pres­i­dent of the United States.

There’s only one thing that might deny us the pres­i­dency, that is the God-given prop­erty of the Repub­li­can Party,” Burns remarked in an “ad” pro­mot­ing episodes of the long-running series.

The 47 per­cent tape?” asked inquir­ing fel­low Simp­sons char­ac­ter Mr. Smithers. “The empty chair? Cay­man Islands? Swiss bank accounts?”

Responded Mr. Burns: “No, no, no and no. It’s a shaggy-dog story about an actual shaggy dog.

Release the hound!”

The “ad” (www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ltCIEbLMaQg&noredirect=1) has Mr. Burns retell the tale of dog Sea­mus, whose ken­nel was fas­tened to the roof of the Rom­neys’ car. Then the nuke boss lets Sea­mus choose between chal­lenger Rom­ney and Demo­c­ra­tic incum­bent Barack Obama.

The pooch is met by the two can­di­dates, whom Burns dubs “Broc­coli Bama” and “Meat Rom­ney.” Sea­mus, fear­ing the worst, runs away and jumps out the window.

Another jumper. Bring in the next dog!”, Burns con­cludes in triumph.
