'South Park' to take on GOP debates
Wednesday’s South Park plans to take on the GOP debates by spoofing … well, we’re not exactly sure yet.
This week’s preview clip is set during a GOP debate, below. Yet Comedy Central’s official description of the episode is vague even by South Park standards: “Mankind’s evolution begins to accelerate at a rapid and disturbing pace. Concurrently, another species on the planet is exhibiting the same drastic development. Eventually the two species will battle to the death and ‘Faith Hilling’ may be humanity’s only hope.”
It’s not clear what “Faith Hilling” (also the episode’s title) means yet (a reference to Faith Hill’s outburst after losing Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2006 CMAs to Carrie Underwood? That’s all we got…). In the clip below, the South Park boys appear to be in the process of “Faith Hilling” the GOP debate.
South Park scripts tend to evolve up until the very last minute, so it’s possible Wednesday’s episode isn’t yet locked. Here’s the clip:
