Was originally conceived as a satire of the sitcom genre rather than a mockery of the George W. Bush Administration, using clichés like the moronic husband, the knowledgeable wife, the wacky neighbor, et cetera. See more »
The head of the Anti-Abortion group is here, and I hear he's sort of a freak.
George W. Bush:
What kind of a freak?
Well, apparently he was aborted 30 years ago, but survived. He is bitter, he is angry, and he hates being cancelled on.

Timothy Bottoms and Carrie Quinn Dolin are listed as George W. Bush and Laura Bush in the opening credits respectively. In the closing credits they are listed with both their real name and their characters name. See more »
I finally watched these episodes in 2008 and I had to continually go back and verify when they were actually produced. They are absolutely scary in that they made spot on fun of what would be the future. Either Parker and Stone lived in Texas and witnessed the idiocy of Gov Bush or they are those weird, eerie people that pay attention to things. Boo, scary! Bush's frat bros invading the White House dressed as Arabs wielding rifles? Bush 'accidentally' executing someone? (No, wait. He did sort of do that as gov.) This may have seemed a failure as a sitcom at the time, but must now be considered as brilliant, if spooky, prescience.
