This town is under the stranglehold of a few tye-dyed treehuggers who would rather play hackey-sack than lock up the homeless!
~ Birch Barlow stirring up his audience.

Birchibald "Birch" T. Barlow, also simply known as Birch Barlow, is an antagonist from The Simpsons series. He is a right-wing conservative talk show host on the radio station KBBL. He also has a show on Fox News.

He is voiced by Harry Shearer, who also voices Mr. Burns, Waylon Smithers, Herman Hermann, Jebediah Springfield, God, Kang, Legs, and Adolf Hitler from the same series.

Biography

On air (and presumably personally), Birch Barlow is a radical conservative, highlighted by his book, "Only Turkeys Have Left Wings". His on-air rantings are intentionally engineered to be controversial and to rile up the audience, in order to convince them to call, as do many talkback radio hosts.

On his radio show, he declares himself to be "the fourth branch of government" and "the 51st state". Barlow was instrumental in getting Sideshow Bob released, due to sympathy to Bob as well as believing his story about being framed.

He also ended up "accused" by Lisa of being the true mastermind behind Bob with the implication of Bob simply being a puppet Mayor in order to trick Bob into confessing to some of his crimes in court (with Birch Barlow also trying to dissuade the shocked audience in regards to the accusation).

Trivia

  • Birch Barlow is a parody of a stereotypical right-wing political commentator. Barlow's voice and appearance is modeled after the late commentator Rush Limbaugh. He has also been a customer at Marge's prescription drug-laden "yard sale", a reference to Limbaugh's Oxycontin addiction scandal.
  • In The Simpsons Guide to Springfield, despite his ultra-conservative views, he was shown having dinner at the Shaboom-Kaboom Café, a gay bar, with Waylon Smithers, John, and Buddy Hodges.
