Framing the Dialogue

Separated At Birth – Simpson/Clapper

Homer Simpson:  Homer is the “leader” of the animated television series “The Simpsons.”  While lovable he frequently finds himself intellectually lacking and often appears rather dumb when faced with logical issues.   Homer’s family and friends often have to come to his rescue when he makes massive mistakes.  Viewers watch in awe at his antics in anticipation of further mishaps.

James Clapper:  James, the “Director” of America’s National Intelligence serves as the head of the Intelligence Community (IC) and is the principal advisor to the President, the National Security Council, and the Homeland Security Council (HSC) for intelligence matters and national security.  While virtually unknown he has frequently found himself lacking intelligence on intelligence issues.  James’ coworkers and spokespeople often have to come to his rescue to “clarify his remarks” when he make his massive mistakes like not knowing about the terror plot in London or actually describing the MUSLIM Brotherhood as a peaceful, secular organization (they hand out lollipops and gum wherever they go).  United States’ citizens need to scream in shock at his antics to avoid a big national security breakdown.
