Still South Park Republicans?

About the only thing worse than the ethics of the modern Republican party is its aesthetic and tastes in just about everything.

Last year, seeking to make the party just a bit more boss for the teenie boppers, a conservative think-tank, the Manhattan Institute, think-tanked a book into existence by Brian C. Anderson. South Park Conservatives: The Revolt against Liberal Media Bias claims that "conservatives ... are overthrowing the liberal media and political correctness," and at the vanguard of this revolution is South Park, which "has mocked -- with scathing genius -- hate-crime laws and sexual harassment policies, liberal celebrities, abortion-rights extremists, and other shibboleths of the Left."

Those actually familiar with South Park -- me, for example -- warned that those words would be eaten. The demented minds behind South Park have no sacred cows. They aren't reliably anything, as far as the political spectrum goes, and your time will come if you watch long enough.

The right wing fanatics at the Catholic League were perhaps instrumental in pressuring Comedy Central into not replaying a recent episode featuring, literally, a Bloody Mary. Go [HERE] if you're interested in finding out more about the particulars -- or just trust me.

File sharing being what it is... human nature being what it is... this is bound to be the most popular episode yet. It's already being offered for download at various sites like this one, for example.

So, Brian C. Anderson, Ralph Reed, Bill Frist, Bush, etc. etc... still South Park Republicans when the cost is the religious right's support? (BoingBoing, Mr. Twig)
