Trivia

The plot in which the students have to vote between choosing douche and a turd as their new school mascot, and Stan's apathy to voting in that particular election is an allusion to the 2004 Presidential Election between George W. Bush and John Kerry. It satirizes the apathy of many voters who felt that both candidates were equally bad choices for President for different reasons. See more »

My single favorite South Park episode
18 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I can admit that this episode has a bit of a targeted audience — those who don't identify rather well with either political party. However, for people who do fall into this category, this is an episode to cherish. Very rarely in television do we see third-party perspectives taken on in a sympathetic and yet non-extremist manner. It's really the non-extremist part which is so surprising; it's clear that the writers understand that those with opinions which don't fit easily into the conventional, socially acceptable options are people too, often relatively normal people who aren't comfortable with the zealots of the world (as can be seen by Stan's interactions with a certain radical group during the episode). This is a brilliant episode and it's a shame to see it not rated as one of the series' best.
