She does look like she's sizing Lisa up for something fiendish and possibly socialist.

A more detailed description for "Stealing First Base:"
Principal Skinner announces that Mrs. Krabappel was called out of town and budget cuts dictate that, until she returns, the school’s two fourth grade classes will merge. Bart reluctantly shares a desk with Nikki (guest voice Silverman) and develops a flirtatious rapport. Bart talks to Grampa about his new crush, and at Grampa’s suggestion, gives Nikki a kiss. But when Nikki starts sending Bart mixed signals, he swears off women forever. Meanwhile, Lisa’s classmates ostracize her for being an overachiever, and First Lady Michelle Obama (guest voice Bassett), a self-professed nerd, comes to Lisa’s defense in the all-new “Stealing First Base” episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, March 21 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SI-2107) (TV-PG L, V)

So now they have guest voices to play the guest voices?

Like this is the first time they've done that. Maurice LaMarche as George C. Scott in "A Star is Burns," Jay Mohr as Christopher Walken in "Insane Clown Poppy"...

Since the tags are acting up for me, I can only post the URL, but there's a promo card up for "Greatest Story Ever D'ohed:"

http://www.simpsonschannel.com/2010/03/ ... ver-dohed/

"The Simpsons vacation in the Holy Land, where Homer is convinced that he is the Messiah — and gets in trouble with the Muslims, the Jews, and the Christians, who all band together, despite their religious differences, to teach Homer a lesson. Sacha Baron Cohen guest stars as Jacob, an eccentric tour guide who shows the the Wailing Wall."

I...was really hoping this card was a joke, but...

"To Surveil With Love:"

Image
When a bomb squad mistakenly blows up Homer’s unattended gym bag, releasing radiation into the city, authorities install an overload of surveillance cameras – which her majesty the queen (guest voice Eddie Izzard) enjoys as a reality tv show — to deter future terrorist acts in Springfield.
Curiously, another description (from Foxflash.com) makes no mention of this:
A bomb squad mistakenly blows up Homer’s unattended gym bag, releasing radiation into the city and authorities react by suspending civil liberties. Wiggum and his men install surveillance cameras around Springfield and round up suspected terrorists, including groundskeeper Willie, but when monitoring the nonstop flow of video imagery proves to be too much, Wiggum enlists concerned citizens to help keep the city safe. Meanwhile, Lisa becomes fed up with being blonde, so she dyes her hair a dark color in the all-new “To Surveil with Love” episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, May 2 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SI-2112) (TV-PG D, L, V)

Voice Cast: Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson; Julie Kavner as Marge Simpson; Nancy Cartwright as Bart Simpson; Yeardley Smith as Lisa Simpson; Hank Azaria as Moe; Harry Shearer as Flanders/Skinner
So...yeah. Take this as you will.

Last one of the season. "Judge Me Tender:"

Image
In The Simpsons' 21st season finale, Moe discovers a talent for judging contests and is invited to appear on American Idol with host Ryan Seacrest and fellow judges Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres, Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson, all guest-voicing as themselves. Meanwhile, Homer drives Marge crazy when he starts hanging around the house too much.
Why do I get the feeling this episode wasn't the writers' idea?

I'm hoping sarcasm will come to the rescue for the season finale.

Haven't they parodied American Idol already?

And wow, Simon Cowell has a guest spot. Doesn't he have a job to do?

Silly writers. You're supposed to have recurring characters, not recurring guest stars.
