Anyone heard of this ?

From the "South Park" guys, "Team America: World Police."

I looked at the pictures in the gallery and i was laughing.

(My son wanted to watch an original 'Thunderbirds' to see what everyone was talking about when the movie came out this summer. So we watched one, and those unblinking eyes with those meaningless faces are so creepy.)

The South Park boys are actually neo cons.
Matt has identified himself as libertarian (small L) while Trey is a Republican.

And in this movie they take cheap pot shots at Janeane Garofalo, Susan Sarandon and Barbara Streisand and other left leaning liberals because they hate them.

This quote was taken from an "ain't it cool news" interview.

"The most remarkable head sculpts belong to the other bad guys in the film. “Actually,” said Trey, “they’re not bad. They’re just really really stupid and misguided.” They’re an organization of Hollywood liberals who are determined to stop Team America from interfering in the affairs of international politics. Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, and a permanently mustard-stained Michael Moore are just a few of the celebrities who are going to feel well and truly roasted when they see this film. Even seeing the heads without the film’s puppeteers bringing them to life, they are frighteningly accurate and bitingly funny."

The Republican Party is also home to such vital creative artists as Trey Parker & Matt Stone (the South Park boys), Dwayne "The Rock" Johnston, Ted Nugent, David Lynch, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sylvester Stallone; Renaissance men with several hit movies and/or rock albums between them and their mulleted kin.

From their older show.
"Parker said it's ironic that he and Stone are getting heat, both because they personally lean Republican and because their series intends to lionize Bush, not ridicule him."

geez,

I thought they were okay, what with 'big gay al' and their stance on genetically modified foods.

Dissing Saddam Hussein was cool cause the guy's a piece of shit and you don't have to be a repug to hate him.

first i'd heard of team america, matt drudge was bitching about it. sounded like a parody of bushco, ... now its an endorsement?

sad, sad, sad.

But all those Hollywood-types probably do as much damage to the Democrats & American liberals as FOX news does. If people are interested in influential American liberals read about the ones that everyone ignores, like Greg Palast, Noam Chomsky, Michael Parenti, Bill Blum & others.

Didn't they interview one of these guys for Blowling for Columbine? He didn't seem "Republican" then . . . I suspect this might be a "buildup" to lure unsuspecting republicans in to see a moie they wouldn't necessaily be caught dead at.

David Lynch is a rep?

No wonder his version of Dune was absolutely horrible - minus Patrick stewart (i like that guy).
