The Irony Meter, It Is Pegged

Well, God bless Netflix.

For the last while, I've been working my way through the entire South Park canon. Tonight it was "About Last Night...", the episode they made right after Obama's election.

They perfectly captured the obnoxious celebrationism of the Obama voters, and I drew sustenance from the delicious irony of it all, knowing how Obama has fallen since then.

And the seeming prescience of the closing lines, as Stan's father awakes with a horrid hangover to discover he no longer has a job.

Kudos to you, Trey & Matt.
