I am a liberal father. I consider 15 a reasonable age for kids to have sexual relations for the first time. I believe in self discipline and rarely chase my children around the house for them to study (my 3 older kids do extremely well at school). I believe that drugs should be legalized and offered in exchange for medical treatment. I support gay marriage and I could go on with more examples of how “liberal” I am. Now having said all this yesterday what I thought would never happened to me happened to me and that is that I was horrified, and I mean horrified, by this South Park Episode called the Snuke. Watching it I became for the first time….a conservative.

While the treatment of the internet in that episode is very funny, the whole part of Hillary Clinton carrying a nuclear device in her vagina and how this device is extracted from her vagiana was of unbelievable bad taste to me. So much, that it made me wish that some things were simply….illegal to show. South Park makes me want to do something I never thought I would do, and that is to want to talk about dignity. Well, at least I was able to tell my 13 and 15 year olds what I thought about it. They were surprised that I had finally found….the limits to my liberalism.

That’s exactly what you were meant to think! You have been baited and then reeled in by South Park’s crypto-fascist neo-conservative agenda.

Those guys are sick! 🙂 Still, they’ve done some very cool and funny episodes: “The List”, “Cartman Dies”, “Make Love Not Warcraft”, etc.

Thats funny. This is a short version of the spanish one.

OK, that cartoon is not Mrs Hillary Clinton herself -obviously-, it is a dummy puppet instead, let say like that. So, I dont see any problem in the so-called odd thing. There is a long list of fame parade which was marching through this South-Park serie and everybody knows what is going on, nodody get nuts if they see ones puppet cartoon, on the contrary. Even Mr Varsavsky would get enjoyed watching his own caricature, because that would not mean by any way that, South Park would be busting Mr Varsavsky chops at all.
