Springfield is For Gay Lovers of Marriage

The Simpsons has always been political - but it's always been kind of tongue-in-cheek. The past couple of years it's become quite blantant - the characters singing "O, Canada" instead of America's "Anthem to War" comes to mind - and the humor has gotten lost in the overtness.

I was skeptical that the Simpsons tackling gay marriage would likewise be a drag. I was pleasantly surprised. Very funny. But I guess if there's one thing the Simpsons does well, it's gay comedy. Homer taking Bart to the gay steel mill may be one of the show's all-time funniest moments. Homer moving in with the gay couples was also a great episode. Thanks, Springfield for welcoming "Gay Lovers of Marriage."
