I wouldn't call it "gutsy" foreshadowing.

The math doesn't lie. Nate Silver tells us the math. The math says it's nearly certain Obama will win. But to make sure I enjoy my day either way, I've "hedged my bets" by putting $100 on Romney in a country where it's legal and 16-to-1. So either Obama wins and I'm happy, or I get a nice chunk of change and I'm happy about that, too.

If you can ever get better than 3:1 odds on a 50-50 bet, it's worth the risk. Who is still giving 16:1 odds, and do they take wagers over the internets?

With an extra Newhart-style scene featuring Cartman tacked onto the end, if need be.

Mr. Trey and Mr. Parker may have created the episode in such a way that new scenes and dialogue may be inserted to accommodate a different victory. Alternatively, the episode title may itself be misleading.

Very true, it will probably be about a new student named Obama

Where can you find a 50-50 bet on Romney? Even the least optimistic preojector, Intrade, has Romney at only 32% this morning.

They're still working on it right Farking now.

If it's about the Presidential Election, they'll still be working on it after a winner is declared. It's what they do. They'll be writing and animating it all the way up until they need to send it to NY Weds afternoon.

I think he believes that anything with two possible outcomes is 50-50. My wife does the same thing.

It's not 50-50. Obama's odds are much better than that, and once again it comes down to Florida and Ohio.

It doesn't have to be massive. It only needs to be very selective and precise, not large.
A few hundred votes can make the difference.

Polls have been wrong in the past, remember Reagan was losing until election day, Carter got a well deserved upset. History might repeat itself again.

Ventura was not suppose to be governor either, was always in 2nd or 3rd place in the polls, but he won in landslide because of new voters. I expect the opposite, Romney will win because a lot of democrats sat home.

I think it has been a pretty good season so far. IMO, the weakest episodes were Butters going to Hawaii and the Ziplining episode (with the exception of the live-action sequence). The rest of the episodes have been great this season.

Reminds me of an old Daily Show where they were going over all the paranoia over turning the Large Hadron Collider on, and had a high school science teacher on saying he estimated that there was a 50% chance it would destroy the world since the only two results that can happen are that it destroys the world or it doesn't.

Eh, if they are serious, meh. If they aren't, it might be good. Last time they did an election episode, I thought it was pretty good. Obama v McCain.... stealing the hope diamond :-D

Agred. The Blockbuster episode was fantastic. I grew up on South Park; I think the first season came out when I was in 4th grade or something like that and since it was just a cartoon, my parents didn't really vet it properly before allowing us to watch (* not that they wouldn't have let us anyway; we'd always been allowed to watch R-rated movies, curse, swear, run around naked, etc...my parents were very permissive because we were "gifted" students) but I can't imagine what my sense of humor would be like without this show. Some will argue that the show is way past its prime, much in the same way that The Simpsons is, but I seriously could give 2 farks less...I love both of those shows and as long as they continue to deliver their same brand of humor as always, I will continue to watch and enjoy :)

I loved the last election episode; lol, McCain's jawline.

Except that Obama only needs the first two, or 1 from column A and 1 from column B, whereas Romney needs all of them.
 
2012-11-05 01:22:44 PM  
I'm hoping the episode will be a sort of sequel to he 2008 one. Also, watch 6 Days to Air if you haven't, it's on Netflix.

Been a bit surprised at the poll outlook here in Minnesota. Though with Pawlenty and Bachmann around I shouldn't be terribly surprised. Haven't watched southpark in years but I've been thinking about going on a streaming marathon sometime soon to pick up what I've missed. I suppose in that fashion, the pop culture lampooning won't be as timely.

Obama's been polling better this week.

The marriage amendment on the other hand is neck and neck (state constitutional ban on Gay marriage).

That will be the closest "race" in Minnesota.

deathbunny32: They said last time that they just assumed Obama would win and would air a disclaimer or something if he lost


IIRC, they had both scenarios accounted for and just aired the one that was correct.

[edit before post: Apparently that was an internet myth that I was remembering, if Wikipedia is to be believed:

According to interviews with Matt Stone and Trey Parker, this was the only version of the episode produced, as a McCain version proved "too daunting a task." The overreaction of supporters of both Obama and McCain informed the episode's content.[3] The episode was completed the morning of the day it was broadcast, with Comedy Central seeing only excerpts of the show beforehand. The heist plot was chosen because it was neutral with respect to who won the election, though the plot depicted Obama winning because the creators felt in the final weeks before the election that Obama would win. The scenes depicting the victory and concession speeches were animated with generic speech filler in the place of lines from the actual speeches and the backdrops behind the candidates that would be added after the real Obama and McCain gave their actual speeches, though Stone expressed amazement at how the filler they wrote matched the content of the actual speeches later heard on Election Night. The animators stated that they used a temporary lip-sync animation because of time constraints. The creators explained that had McCain won, they would've dealt with their own "Dewey Defeats Truman" situation at a later time, perhaps redubbing lines in which characters mention the election results, purposely doing it badly in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Stone also explained some of the rationale behind deciding which characters would be depicted supporting which candidate, though he admitted that some of these choices were arbitrary.]

Given the state of the Electoral college, and the states Romney would need to win, it's actually not totally insane to consider. If he did win them all, suddenly, inspite of all the polling, it's kind of suspicious. I doubt there will be shenanigans, as there almost never are, but I don't think it's as inconceivable as you think.

A Republican presidential candidate has not won Minnesota since *NIXON*.

Oh well vote in Jessie Ventura as gov and switch back and forth on our senate seats between R/D all the time. Presidential races have been pretty consitent though.
