Ted Cruz has made a very serious enemy out of 'Simpsons' fans
Senator Ted Cruz didn't know what he stepped in when he decided to invoke the name of Lisa Simpson. During the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference, Ted Cruz once again trotted out his supposed knowledge of pop culture. We know that the Texas senator loves The Princess Bride, but he also wants you to know he knows the names of each member of the The Simpsons. And he also wants to use them to make a very dubious political observation. In his speech Thursday, Cruz said, "The Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson and Republicans are happily the party of Homer, Bart, Maggie, and Marge." Here's your line from @tedcruz at @CPAC: "The Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson and Republicans are happily the party of Homer, Bart, Maggie and Marge." — Ben Kamisar (@bkamisar) February 22, 2018 If you're a Simpsons fan, we'll pause for you to gasp.  SEE ALSO: These old 'Simpsons' sketches are everything you need and more We can safely guess that Lisa's activist ways, vegetarianism, creativity, and the fact that she's a smart, independent female, would all make Cruz wear a big frowny face. But naming the rest of the family ( including the baby) as members of the Republican party seemed like a bridge too far for many online.  If there's one nerdy fandom that will defend its characters with vitriol, episodic knowledge, and Harvard Lampoon-level jokes, it's the Simpsons fandom. For when you come for one of the yellow, Springfield-based brood, you co
