America is in the thick of primary season, and it’s the stuff of nightmares for poor Marge. In a new short released by The Simpsons over the weekend, she is seen waking up in the middle of the night, hyperventilating into a paper bag, and decrying the lack of basic manners of the candidates. Homer advises her to imagine a kinder, gentler country, “one where Republicans, Democrats, and Donald Trump all get along.”

What follows next is a rendition of “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You),” which starts off rather nicely before the proceedings quickly devolve into war between the candidates. Trump’s hair, Hillary Clinton’s ties to Goldman Sachs, and Ted Cruz’s Canadian birthplace are among the topics skewered. (And although this video was made before Jeb Bush dropped out of the race, he does get in a parting shot.) Press play to watch civility get voted out of office.
