'Simpsons' politics

From NBC's Andrew Merten
Even before the opening credits of the new "Simpsons" movie, the writers take a jab at the earlier-than-normal coverage of the next presidential election. The movie begins with an episode of "Itchy and Scratchy" that tells of the cartoon mouse's heroism, making him Hillary Clinton's running partner -- and she's the at the bottom of the ticket.

Other political plots include Al Gore's crusade against global warming, NSA spying, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as president.
