Oh man...
The noose draws tighter;
This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.

Oh yes, I've been hearing this since I think it was yesterday. I'd actually rewatched Itchy & Scratchy & Marge as well as The Front quite recently before this. Great character even if he was quite overlooked.
