Possibly a reference to the Family Guy ep. where Lois becomes mayor and Peter uses all the town's electricity to resurrect Bob Dole.
Most likely to correct me?
Family Guy does not entertain me on a normal basis. Official spoofs (blue harvest, etc) and historical episodes do evoke laughs, but I otherwise don't watch. I was recalling a THOH Simpsons episode where Bill Clinton and Bob Dole were abducted by aliens and later killed by you-know-who's stupidity.
The irony was the last statement "were you expecting a question?" because that in itself is a question while giving pretense of denying the reader the question.
