Like Muppets But Less Fuzzy

Ken posted a memo regarding the upcoming film Team America by the creators of South Park. I agree it's likely harder on the left than the right. After all, it was SP creator Matt Stone who said "I hate conservatives, but I really fucking hate liberals." However, I'm of two minds on the thing. It may be a bit insensitive to make a comedy about terrorism, but man--puppets are funny! I'm also a little wary about any overly political film that comes out right before an election, no matter who it pokes fun at. I do, however, feel better about this release than the similarly-timed release of the DVD version of Fahrenheit 9/11 because at least in Team America, you can see the director pulling all the strings.
