- When Brian finds the piece of bologna in the book, he is saying "Some of the stuff in here is...hey bologna!" If you take this statement out of context, it sounds like he's saying the book is "full of baloney", which is slang for "full of lies."
- The episode was originally titled "Peter Griffin is a Big Fat Idiot", a reference to the book Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot by Al Franken.
- Stan Smith makes a brief cameo, watching Brian on TV.
- The song "Republican Town" is set to the tune of "The Company Way" from the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
- The events of "And Then There Were Fewer" are brought up on the news, and Tom Tucker introduces Joyce Kinney as his new co-anchor, replacing the late Diane Simmons.
- Chris reminds Lois of how Rush Limbaugh is just a fictional character, portrayed by Fred Savage, and that she learned about this, herself in "FOX-y Lady". Lois, however, denounces this. She says that because that story was told on FOX news, it has officially become a lie.
