Ted Cruz thinks Lisa Simpson is the Democrats and the rest of the family are Republicans

Senator Ted Cruz didn’t know what he stepped in when he decided to invoke the name of Lisa Simpson.

During the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference, Ted Cruz once again trotted out his supposed knowledge of pop culture. We know that the Texas senator loves The Princess Bride, but he also wants you to know he knows the names of each member of the The Simpsons. And he also wants to use them to make a very dubious political observation.

In his speech Thursday, Cruz said, “The Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson and Republicans are happily the party of Homer, Bart, Maggie, and Marge.”

If you’re a Simpsons fan, we’ll pause for you to gasp. 

We can safely guess that Lisa’s activist ways, vegetarianism, creativity, and the fact that she’s a smart, independent female, would all make Cruz wear a big frowny face. But naming the rest of the family (including the baby) as members of the Republican party seemed like a bridge too far for many online. 

If there’s one nerdy fandom that will defend its characters with vitriol, episodic knowledge, and Harvard Lampoon-level jokes, it’s the Simpsons fandom. For when you come for one of the yellow, Springfield-based brood, you come for them all. 

And of course, it wasn’t too terribly long ago that the Republican party saw The Simpsons as a real source of evil, poisoning the minds of America’s youths. 

Never forget that the first President George Bush said that, “we need a nation closer to The Waltons than The Simpsons.

What a short memory Ted Cruz has.
