D’oh! Homer joins Barbie on the list of prohibited imports. He probably doesn’t care because they don’t sell Duff beer there.

Meanwhile, President Obama told NBC in an interview that, “I think we have a very good estimate of when they could potentially achieve breakout capacity, what stage they’re at in terms of processing uranium. But do we know all the dynamics inside Iran? Absolutely not. And I think one of the difficulties is that Iran itself is a lot more divided now than it was.
