Ah, classic. We were lucky tots.

And, of course, the Simpsons "I'm an Amendment" is fantastic, too: "And I'll make Ted Kennedy pay. If he fights back. I'll say that he's gay"

SchoolHouse Rock, Groening, and Sorkin, baby.

I'm always so happy he becomes a law. It feels so touch and go there for awhile...

Yeah, that SIMPSONS parody is great. I especially appreciate Lisa's response to Bart's question of "What the Hell is this?"-- "It's one of those campy 70's throwbacks that appeals to Generation-X'ers.' Hey! I resemble that remark!

Some wonderful little visual touches I love-- the fact that "Bill" has a suitcase when he's hitch-hiking (what does a bill wear, anyway?); the Mickey ears on one of the bills waiting in line to be debated (and the gun barrel that pokes into another from a gun bill ahead of him); the way he collapses to the ground when talking about how the bill can die in committee.
