There was lots of good political humor, but I didn't laugh a lot.

Good parts: The Apathy Voter gag, Bender's head in that racecar (good animation), Nixon's speech.

Bad parts: The ending was too predictable with all that "one vote counts" talk. Not enough side-splitting jokes.

Good, not great. 4/5

It wouldn't be a Matt Groening creation without some reference to Richard Milhouse Nixon (yep, that's where Bart's friend got his name from).

Bender's Titanium body appreciates in value when a titanium mine is caved in. Wanting to be rich, Bender pawns his body and soon is livign the life of a wealthy head.

One of the best parts is when a dog comes up to Bender's head on the street:
Bender-Hey, I'll give you 5 bucks to not do what I think you're gonna do.
bender-Heheh, you just lost 5 bucks.

Meanwhile, the upcoming election has people in an uproar over the cloned candidates John Jackson, and Jack Johnson. However, suddenly the head of Richard Nixon joins the fray, attached to Bender's pawned body.
