    Mob: Down with taxes, down with taxes!

    Mayor: Are this morons getting dumber or just louder

    Adviser: Dumber sir, they won't give up the bear patrol but they won't pay taxes for it either

    Mayor: Ducking this issue will call for real leadership

    Addresses the crowd: People... your taxes are high because of illegal immigrants....that's right illegal immigrants, we need to get rid of them

    Ah yes, the Conan years of Simpsons. Brilliant stuff.

    There was another episode with Quimby getting booed by a crowd, then scolding them for being fickle, for which they applaud him.


    EDIT:

    The first illegal immigrant bill was in the 80s I believe, and Reagan did as much about it then as Bush and Obama can do about it now. Too many people are making money off 'em anyway.

    I like this part of the show:

    "Oh my God, I got so swept up in the scapegoating and fun of Proposition 24 I never stopped to think it might affect someone I care about."
