The Ayn Rand School for Tots

I picked up the fourth season of The Simpsons the other day, and caught the following scene from the episode, "A Streetcar Named Marge." Marge is meeting with a Ms. Sinclair - proprietor of the Ayn Rand School for Tots, an Ayn Rand lookalike, and voice acted by Jon Lovitz:

Marge: Maggie is allergic to strained pears, and she likes a bottle of warm milk before nap time.

Ms. Sinclair: A bottle? Mrs. Simpson, do you know what a baby is saying when she reaches for a bottle?

Marge: Ba Ba?

Ms.Sinclair: She is saying, "I am a leach!" Our aim here is to develop the bottle within.

I love that episode.

I love that episode. Haven't seen it in years.

Though I certainly credit Ayn Rand as being a very important influence on my thinking, Objectivsts do deserve to be made fun of, if for no other reason, for how seriously they (tend to) take themselves.

Dude: "leach"?
