South Park Conservatives...

Scarborough Country pinpoints the mythic South Park Conservative (SPC) with a clip mocking Costa Rica for smelling "like ass." "Lord knows SPCs know what ass smells like --- their heads being buried up there and all," writes Digby, "Seriously, my friends, this a deep and meaningful lesson, not just a puerile, unfunny swipe at poor people. You see, the SPCs are just pointing out that it sucks to be poor. And they do it in a lighthearted, funloving way that makes everyone understand that it is better to be an American because our cities smell like vanilla cookies and lemon Pledge. Because we're better." (Hullabaloo)
