South Park Conservatives


I just ordered the book (and with Amazon Prime I will be receiving it
in two days for no extra shipping charge! The best deal in the
world!) so I can’t comment in depth, but the whole South Park Con
thing strikes me as somewhat off target. Let’s not forget that Parker
and Stone also created “That’s My Bush,” the lame Presidential parody
sitcom a few years back. I don’t know how those guys vote, but as
writers they’re iconoclasts. Maybe their breakthrough is to realize
that the Liberal Media is every bit as much of An Establishment as The
Government Controlled By The Man, so they give a comic de-pantsing to
the left and the result seems conservative.

As for “South Park” itself, I don’t watch it, but I absolutely loved
the first thing I ever saw of it, which was Parker and Stone’s
homemade Christmas special, which I believe was sent around L.A. as a
holiday gift by an agent. If you haven’t seen it, there’s lots of
swearing, Jesus and Santa fight to settle things once and for all, and
then Brian Boitano shows up and delivers the true meaning of
Christmas. It’s hilarious and a teensy bit more inappropriate than
Laura Bush’s joke about… well, I’m blushing so I can’t type.
