    Fred Phelps.
    It's alliterative, and sounds like a Jim Henson Muppet.
    Names like that stick with me.

    I'm not a fan of Parker/Stone. Have they done a character called Fred Felch yet?

    I dunno.
    I bailed on them for the Trump years.
    Then I heard they did a transphobic "men pretending to be women are going to ruin women's sports" episode, and I'm never going back.

    Didn't they already do the trans dolphin thing?

    Who is offended by southpark anymore? If they didn't pick on trans people I would get offended.

    "I'm offended you didn't offend me!" would be pure schadenfreude if it weren't about South Park :lol:

    Now, if only @Tereun would grasp that, the rest of our online lives would be so much less trollish.

    Cue kneejerk @Tererun response in five, four, three...

    Yes, I enjoy kicking you and will probably repeat it a few times. I am pretty sure you are not miss cleo with that sort of prediction.

    Please, fucking insult me. Do it. Actually bite me in the proverbial sense.

    You do realize this is why dayton thought so highly of himself. I finally understand why he was so full of himself. People like you were what was kicking him around.

    Insulting posters who have never done you any harm is your schtick. Wouldn't want to step on your patch.

    The trans dolphin shit was years ago, before most of us really were listening to anything the trans community was trying to tell us. It was shitty then and hasn't aged well now.

    I've honestly outgrown their brand of "caring about things is stupid" humor. Took 'em a bit longer, but they've become as stale as the Simpsons.

    I would be interested in that. I'm actually wondering why, specifically, conservative talk radio took off like it did while liberal talk radio did not.

    One thought I had, and I'm likely wrong, was stereotypes. Conservatives are more rural and tend to spend more time in cars commuting while liberals are more urban and no one listens to the radio on the bus/train?

    Could be a factor, yes.

    But I think the ultimate reason is a bit simpler - liberals don't need people to tell them how to think. Rush's followers, the dittoheads, are some of the dumbest people on the planet.

    Possibly.

    Also, there is more homogeneity in the conservative base. And not just demographically but also when it comes to issues. Maintain social status quo, guns, abortion, extract wealth from urban areas. It’s much easier to rally a group of people that all have similar lives and similar thoughts than it is a more diverse group.

    Another factor could be that, to use a cliche, reality has a liberal bias. NPR and ‘straight’ (hehe) news work for me. I don’t need someone else to translate events in a way that confirms my beliefs.

    Or another theory is liberals like to lecture and preach. Nothing wrong with that per se, but you need the ability to entertain to keep an audience engaged.

    Makes sense. By definition, wanting to (more or less) keep things the way they are gives you only one basic option. Wanting to change them opens the door to multitudinous possibilities for changing them.
