South Park Does It Again

I just watched "A Little Bit Country," in which Cartman rigs his own concussion-induced flashback of history (fyi - dropping yourself from a crane into a kiddy pool containing a TiVo full of the History Channel will do the trick) in order to find out what the Founders think about war. Here's his conclusion:

Cartman: I learned somethin' today. This country was founded by some of the smartest thinkers the world has ever seen. And they knew one thing: that a truely great country can go to war, and at the same time, act like it doesn't want to. [a shot of the crowd] You people who are for the war, you need the protesters. Because they make the country look like it's made of sane, caring individuals. And you people who are anti-war, you need these flag-wavers, because, if our whole country was made up of nothing but soft pussy protesters, we'd get taken down in a second. That's why the founding fathers decided we should have both. It's called 'having your cake and eating it too.'

Randy: He's right. The strength of this country is the ability to do one thing and say another.

Brilliant.
