Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Real-life Republicans aren't the only Romney supporters nursing their post-election wounds. A return to Springfield's Republican headquarters finds everyone's favorite animated nuclear power plant tycoon, Monty Burns, surrounded by Kleenex tissues and disheveled-looking campaign memorabilia (including a book titled "Nate Silver can't add"). With the election behind him, the super-villain sets his sights on the looming financial crisis known as the "fiscal cliff."

"Think of the economy as a car and a rich man as the driver. If you don't give the driver all the money, he'll drive you over a cliff. It's just common sense." Mr. Burns explains.

Mr. Burns "endorsed" Romney just days before the election. Too little, too late, Monty.
