Springfield’s most famous resident heads to the polls to cast his vote for either Pres. Barack Obama or former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. But before he gets into the voting booth, he hits a roadblock: Voter ID laws, which restrict the right to vote, targeting minorities, the elderly and young people.
Poll worker: If you’re going to vote we’ll need some photo ID.
Homer: But I’ve lived here all my life.
Poll worker: Stopping all Americans from voting is for the protection of all Americans.
Homer: But I’m a 40-year-old white guy who didn’t go to college and gets all his news from monitors at gas stations.
Poll worker: In you go!
As Homer once said, “It’s funny ‘cause it’s true.”
