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.
