D'oh: Homer _tries_ to vote for Obama

In its annual Halloween episode -- this year falling just two days before the presidential election -- The Simpson's will feature a segment where Homer heads into a "double-wide" voting booth in an attempt to cast his vote for Barack Obama. But the electronic voting booth ends up tallying not one, but six votes for John McCain. As a door in the machine opens to start sucking Homer into what looks like a paper shredder, he screams: "This doesn't happen in America! Maybe Ohio -- but not in America!" The "Treehouse of Horror" episode, airing Nov. 2 on Fox, isn't supposed to be an endorsement of Obama, says executive producer Al Jean, but a commentary on voting irregularities.
