The title of "South Park"'s post-election episode appears to offer a clue about Tuesday night's election outcome
Might as well stay away from the voting booths on Tuesday, citizens, because the election is already over. At least, as far as "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are concerned.
Despite the fact that the Comedy Central series has been accused of a conservative bias in the past — and inspired a political movement that came to be known as "'South Park' Republicans" — Parker and Stone have gone out on a limb and tempted a "Dewey Defeats Truman" moment with the title of their their post-election episode airing Wednesday night at 10 p.m.
The episode's title? "Obama Wins!"
It's not certain why the show is so confident in the incumbent president's re-election, but a summary of the episode notes that Cartman "is hiding something in his bedroom that could change the outcome of the entire election. While Americans innocently plan to go to sleep Tuesday night with the election results counted and a winner announced, Cartman has secretly wrestled control of the Presidential election from the voters."
