The Simpsons questions what is culturally acceptable, showcasing controversial issues like homosexuality, animal rights, the war on terror, and religion. This subtle form of political analysis is effective in changing opinions and attitudes on a large scale. ""Homer Simpson Marches on Washington"" explores the transformative power that enables popular culture to influence political agendas, frame the consciousness of audiences, and create profound shifts in values and ideals. To investigate the full spectrum of popular culture in a democratic society, editors Timothy M. Dale and Joseph J. Foy gather a top-notch team of scholars who use television shows such as ""Star Trek"", ""The X-Files"", ""All in the Family"", ""The View"", ""The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"", and ""The Colbert Report"", as well as movies and popular music, to investigate contemporary issues in American popular culture.
