Last month, Republican senator and Congressional punching bag Ted Cruz claimed that “the Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson and Republicans are happily the party of Homer, Bart, Maggie and Marge.” While not necessarily false, the statement’s intentions, as if to insult Democrats who may aspire to be Lisa Simpson, rubbed people the wrong way. Among the numerous people who didn’t take Cruz’s comments kindly was the voice of Lisa Simpson herself, Yeardley Smith, who responded to Cruz on Twitter. We spoke with Smith after the SXSW premiere of her new film All Square, about Cruz’s comments and how he’s missing the point.
