This episode was awesome. Every boy had a preety good part, except Kenny, they just use hiom as a prop. I like how Stan and Kyle we super serial about saving Cartman even though he's an ahole. This episode was top-notch, now we must wait a while for the next. 8/10

That is so ghey. Why anyone needs a license from the government for a relationship is beyond me.

What's next? Bringing more bastards into this world?

Trey fell into the vagina. Life is over for him.

Somebody should talk some sense to that guy.

I thought the episode had a lot of potential, but fell a little short of hitting it's aim.

Things I liked:
Animation
Score
Cartman (eating and sh*tting treasure)
"I can't kick, you just have to save me"

Things I didn't care for:
Al Gore
Manbearpig metaphor
"Cereal"

It's called "catering to the nuts." Everyone does it if they want the White House.

I'm pretty sure that M&T aren't rooting for the jesus freaks in office now. Al Gore is a great target, because he's such a hypocrite.


So could ex-coke-blower Dubya, if they put the effort into it.

Agree. At least these neocons will tell you to your face that they're going to trash your constitutional rights in order to save them.

What landslide?

2k

Gore: popular - 50,996,116 48%, electoral - 266
Bush: popular - 50,456,169 48%, electoral - 271
Other: popular - 3,874,040 4%

2k4

Kerry: popular - 62,040,606 48%, electoral - 252
Bush: popular - 59,028,109 51%, electoral - 286

These aren't "landlside" wins, there are "by the hair on your balls" wins

I doubt it. He's knows his pol career ended six years ago. If he was that desparate, he woulda ran the last time.

At least not in the media or DC, anyway. You know a political system is screwy when liberals are considered the backward ones.

Bottom line: nobody gives a sh*t about the Xtian Right until they're wanted in an election year, which is why they're always pissy.

I've been hearing the demise of the Dems since I was five...in 1972.

We have a dual-party plutocracy -- biz favors one party, and the other is a rubber stamp, in one form or another, that gets its turn once in a while. Much as I like seeing a third-party effort, we as votes are just too apathetic and unmotivated to change it. Both parties have been around for close to two centuries and the only way they'll disappear is when the whole US does.

I didn't see a need to trash Gore, unless M&T are cashing checks written out by Karl Rove.

A bunch of dumb Washington wives that had nothing better to do than screw with peoples freedom of speech and expression. They were the reason that those "Parental Advisory" labels were put on records. It especially sucked if you were a young metalhead living in a redneck town like mine.


It sure was a hell of hard pill to swallow when I had to vote in '92. Tip's crusade was a real oddity--why would she lump herself with right-wing whack jobs like Bill Wildmon, Reed Irvine and Fred Phelps?

I thought it was a funny episode because it was such an accurate depiction of Al Gore the special Olympian/super hero.

Al Gore, for example, will most likely not influence anyone's opinion, so why waste an ENTIRE episode on him? And by the way, there are plenty of shows on TV that insult democrats, most of them are on the FOX news channel.


They got Bush and Condelizza Rice going to Fox asking them to censor a show because of terrorists on Cartoon Wars.

They got Bush on Best Friends Forever.

They got Bush on Ladder To Heaven

They refered to Bush as a "Turd Sandwich" on Deuche & Turd.

They got Tommy Thompson on the ass face episode (forgot the name at the moment)

They made an entire TV series on Bush in 2001 called "That's My Bush"

They got Gary Condit on Butters' Very Own Episode. Gary Condit is a "Blue Dog Democrat" which means he's a more conservative Democrat (mostly socially)

so its far from "Just democrats"

If they make fun of Liberals/etc more its because they are usually involved in stuff thats more funny to make fun of:

PETA
Save The Rainforest
Earth Day
Hippies
etc


Yeah, but, when they "get" Dubya, it's usally a poke in the ribs, not shove-a-hand-up-their-ass-and-pull-out-their-organs kind of "getting."

The right has a whole lot of targets:

Bill "Falafel Man" O'Reilly
FOX "News"
Ann Coulter, who looks more like a crack whore than Mrs. Cartman
Rush "the Doctor Shopper" Limbaugh
Karl Rove, the man behind the curtain
etc. :)

Too easy. Leave that crap for The Daily Show. Jon Stewart needs all the "easy" he can get.

Am I the only one who thinks that the show was a play on Napolean Dynamite i.e. the way Al gore talked and the MANBEARPIG? The Liger?

I didn't associate MANBEARPIG with Global Warming - that's old news

I think it was just a satire of Napolean Dynamite - am I wrong?

Because he has a movie (yes, Al Gore speaking for well over an hour!!) coming out that is the single most horrifying movie you will see and must see unless you want your children to die.


Haha,Al Gore is always fair game.
He's a much much more retarded version of Forrest Gump.
But we musn't forget that he is pure evil.

kfgg just because PETA's an activist group doesn't mean it's Liberal. PETA is far from Liberal, trust me. Hell PETA's even at war right now with Femonism because Femonists were protesting PETA's use of naked women during their protests.

And CTE (or if you want to be referred to as something else), you really need to cut the sensetivity. I'm not meaning that with any offense toward you at all, I'm just saying that when you're making Cartman jokes you're an awesome and funny guy but when you get more on your serious side, I really think you should chill.

It seem to me that M&T try to avoid the easy target. It is safe and obvious to goof on the people listed above. Besides, most comedy shows are regularly doing just that. The Simpsons really like to rake Republicans over the coals (and do a great job of it). Playing the Devil's Advocate for laughs is something that M&T do better than anyone else in the media.

I don't think they were making fun of Al Gore so much for his politics but for his personality. As someone already pointed out this was done several times on the Animaniacs series. I was a Gore supporter in 2000 and I still laughed throughout the episode, especially the parts when Al Gore started whining and crying when nobody would take him "serial". Besides after a whole separate series making fun of Bush this is the first and only time they've ever made fun of Al Gore. The part about Gore pushing away his friends is somewhat true too; back in 2000 he tried to dissociate himself from Clinton and refused to let Bill campaign for him.

Hell even if the metaphor were present, it does not automatically give the episode an anti-environmental message. The alarmism and attention-seeking were being lampooned. Notice how Al Gore spent all his time making stuff up and trying to scare people rather than conducting a scientific investigation? Notice how he dragged the boys along claiming he was trying to make the world safer for them, only to save only his own skin and abandon them for dead?


The episode was a classic SP adventure involving the 4 boys, who all got great roles. It was based on 2 current events, and the animation was of noticeably higher quality. Cartman got what he deserved, Kenny got out in one piece, Kyle got to play the hero, and Stan had an indignant speech at the end. Compared to last week's episode, the jokes were actually funny throughout.

I still think it was a decent episode. I just hope I don't have to put up with a bunch of dorky little teenagers using the word "serial" over and over now.
