Kennedy fails Bay State as Springfield, Vermont, named official Springfield of the Simpsons

I may have to vote against Sen. Ted in the next election because of his failure on this issue which has been so important to all the members of the Collateral Damage household. Our own Diamond Joe Quimby put out some serious political weight behind this and lost. Not only did he appear in a video for the effort but

Kennedy urged everyone on the e-mail list of his leadership political action organization, the Committee for a Democratic Majority, to vote for Springfield, Mass., in a USA Today contest to determine which of the 14 American cities named Springfield should assume the status of real-world equivalent for the Simpson clan’s hometown.

But all was for naught: Springfield, Vt., was the winner of an online voting competition conducted by USA-Today, on behalf of Twentieth Century Fox, to host the premiere on July 21. The Vermont town, population 9,300, was the top vote-getter, followed in order by Springfield, Ill., Springfield, Ore., and Springfield, Mass.

Man, we lost to Oregon and I didn’t even know they had a Springfield. Maybe that explains why Ted’s still in office: He realized he couldn’t cut it as a private sector lobbyist.

Chowda Head.

  1. I am one of 200 volunteers who appeared in the winning Springfield Vermont video. After we helped our local Chamber of Commerce win the contest, they turned their backs on us. We were kept off the invitation list so the elite in town could attend the world premiere instead. And not even a word of thanks or mention of us in the public ceremony outside the theater.
