I thought the following exchange was interesting:



Cartman: Daaad, when's it gonna stop raining frogs?
Pharaoh: It'll be okay, my son. The weather will clear.
Cartman: But my friend Kyle, he says that the reason we've had all these plagues and stuff because you won't let all the Jews leave.
Pharaoh: [sighs] It's a complicated political issue, my son. An economic social issue that needs time. We can't let them leave, but is it really all that different from when the north didn't let the confederate states leave the USA?
Cartman: Wow, that makes sense. Don't think anyone can deny that.

No one? I know the underlying idea expressed in the exchange is pretty standard here. But seeing the argument in such a mainstream show was a bit surprising.

trey parker and matt stone are libertarians. They sprinkle this kind of stuff in other episodes ie "Imaginationland" when the gov. is going to assault our imaginations for the good of all. They make fun of al gore as the "hunter of the man/bear/pig", this seems to be commentary on his mission to stop global warming.
