Montgomery Burns Explains the Fiscal Cliff
At the Springfield Republican Party Headquarters, a dejected Montgomery Burns explains the fiscal cliff, looming tax hikes and spending cuts that threaten to throw the economy back into recession.

“Think of the economy as a car and the rich man as the driver,” Burns demonstrates. “If you don’t give the driver all the money, he’ll drive you over a cliff. It’s just common sense”

It’s all downhill from there. He sticks his foot in his mouth until republicans are even less popular.
