More Election Fun

This from the Simpsons "Treehouse of Horrors VII." In this classic episode, released Halloween time 1996, frequent alien protagonists Kodos and Kang assume the form of presidential candidates Bill Clinton and Bob Dole in an effort to take over the world through a Democratic election. Some classic moments:

Kent Brockman: Senator Dole, why should people vote for you instead of President Clinton?
Kang: It makes no difference which one of us you vote for. Either way, your planet is doomed. DOOMED!
Kent: Well, a refreshingly frank response there from senator Bob Dole.

Kang: The politics of failure have failed. We need to make them work
again. Tomorrow, when you are sealed in the voting cubicle, vote
for me, Senator Ka... Bob Dole.
Kodos: I am looking forward to an orderly election tomorrow, which will
eliminate the need for a violent blood bath.

Homer: America, take a good look at your beloved candidates. They're
nothing but hideous space reptiles. [unmasks them]
[audience gasps in terror]
Kodos: It's true, we are aliens. But what are you going to do about
it? It's a two-party system; you have to vote for one of us.
Man1: He's right, this is a two-party system.
Man2: Well, I believe I'll vote for a third-party candidate.
Kang: Go ahead, throw your vote away.
[Kang and Kodos laugh out loud]
