D’oh! Newsom appears in Simpsons documentary 

What does Mayor Gavin Newsom think of the slick, corrupt, womanizing mayor of Springfield, Mayor “Diamond Joe” Quimby?

Find out on Sunday when Newsom appears in an hour-long documentary about The Simpsons directed by Morgan Spurlock of “Super Size Me” fame. 

Here’s an excerpt from a Wired blog post that reviews the documentary:

Spurlock picks interesting people to put the show in perspective. For example, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom opines on Mayor “Diamond Joe” Quimby, calling him corrupt and patronizing. Newsom’s mention of Diamond Joe’s “sexual escapades and heavy drinking” especially shines, considering the real-life politician’s real-world experiences on similar terrain. There’s got to be a joke in there somewhere.

The documentary, “The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special: In 3-D! On Ice” airs at 8:30 p.m. on Fox after the 450th episode of The Simpsons.
