    The South Park creators' efforts would be better spent on Obama campaign volunteers.

    The radicalized knucklehead convicted of threatening the lives of the “South Park” creators signed up as a volunteer for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, but by the time Election Day arrived he had concluded it would be a violation of Islamic law to vote in the U.S. election, according to court records.

    Wannabe jihadi Zachary Chesser, 21, was sentenced earlier this year to 25 years in federal prison following his guilty plea to making the “South Park” threats as well as providing material support to terrorists (in this case the Somali guerilla group Al-Shabaab).

    South Park hasn't been even marginally funny in years.

    Trey and Matt should've hung it up after the three-part "Imaginationland" abortion.

    Of course all campaign, volunteer workers are subjected to rigorous evaluations :rolleyes: Also, 21 yrs old and prone to capricious acts? I'm shocked!!! Shocked I tell you. There are people on the right who would also fit that mold.

    So you're trying to downplay something that happened in real life....in defense of a cartoon?

    Harpooning 'whats-her-names' derailing technique. Also criticizing the format satire takes does nothing to detract from the message

    Where are all the cases of Tea Partiers being convicted of providing material support to terrorists and threatening the lives of media personalities?

    I've been watching South Park from the first season. It's a fuckin' cartoon fer crissakes! I mean, this is a show that started with "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe". Why would anyone take it seriously?

    But then again, Liberals do depend on entertainment for their political news and ideas: Jon Stewart, Colbert Report, Bill Mahr, SNL. :cuckoo:
