The Simpsons is Now Twenty.

It's been shitty for at least ten, which is why I didn't bother watching the celebratory episode this weekend. Jonathan Chait and his readers discuss their favorite episodes. Mine is the Treehouse of Horror VII segment, "Citizen Kang," which has disappeared from YouTube and centers on Bill Clinton and Bob Dole being impersonated by monotone aliens with no one able to tell the difference.

"My fellow Americans. As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball, but
tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward, upward not forward,
and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom."
- campaign speech by Kodos as Bill Clinton

What is your favorite episode? And is anyone willing to defend the last decade or so of output (not counting the movie, which was a refreshing last gasp for air)?
