Hillary Clinton ‘South Park’

Hillary Clinton will make her first “appearance” on Comedy Central’s “South Park” on Wednesday.

Hillary Clinton 'South Park' Illustration The episode, which is still in production, will have the town at the heart of “South Park” preparing for the arrival of Clinton for a big campaign rally. At the same time, the character Cartman suspects a new Muslim student is behind a terrorist threat – one that includes Clinton as a target.

Comedy Central insiders wouldn’t reveal more of the story line – and also suggested it’s not unusual for content to change several times until the point where the producers deliver the show to the network for airing at 10 p.m.

The episode, “The Snuke,” marks the first time Clinton will be animated on the series, which has made references to her before.

Creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker insist on creating each episode in a week, ensuring that the ideas are fresh and not over-worked. It’s quite possible, indeed, that the show is not yet finished and even they don’t know how it’ll turn out.

    That’s also handy for denying HRC any ability to opt out from the story line.

    Lesbian sex with Monica Lewinsky would seem to be called for.

    And congrats to Anderson for giving us the only lesbian-sex scene that would turn off men…

    Indeed, I still remember when the Elian Gonzalez affair came to a head – they dropped the episode that was supposed to air and built a more topical piece from scratch in something under 72 hours. Whether you like their brand of humor or not, that’s pretty impressive.

    I find them alternately brilliant and disgusting but, yes, there’s genius at work. Even their college student projects, like “Cannibal The Musical,” had some amazingly clever stuff.
