So many adorable little moments we've had poking fun at our capitalist overlords, and the middle-class white kids who are no doubt hours away from fundamentally altering American politics and economics for the better.
Here, the kids of South Park get a first-hand lesson in the tyranny of the dreaded 1%.

Mormon are hot these days! Look! They have a Tony-nominated Broadway musical of their very own! Not to mention that one Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated television series starring the girl from The Brown Bunny, and those two presidential-wannabe guys.
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints might take issue with some of the wording in the article, like calling the temple ceremonies "secretive," or making casual reference to the LDS temple garment, which members consider sacred. Yet some Latter-day Saints may be pleased with the article's positive message reflected in its headline: "Mormons Rock!: They've conquered Broadway, talk radio, the U.S. Senate-and they may win the White House. Why Mitt Romney and 6 million Mormons have the secret to success." Indeed, the article – which offers a secular defense of Mormonism – reads at times like a sales pitch for the faith…
The article posits that the LDS church's unique culture and theology create a proven formula for producing American "winners." Featuring interviews with various successful Mormons in business, academia and politics, Newsweek says there is a strong case for the church and that LDS politicians should start making it.
"The thrust of the article," [Newsweek reporter McKay] Coppins said, "is that Mormonism's history of persecution, along with its doctrinal emphasis on education and eternal progression, results in a church full of highly motivated, successful people. When you look at it from a sociological standpoint, that's really one of the Church's greatest achievements."
And if Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman can make everything they say half as catchy as this Broadway soundtrack, I'm feeling good about 2012!

From The CC Insider…
I don't know about you, but I'm pretty slow with the topical humor. I'm still fine-tuning my Monica Lewinsky jokes. Those South Park guys on the other hand are a bit more on top of things. Take last night's new episode, which featured a references to Arnold Schwarzenegger's illegitimate child, a scandal that only broke on Monday! That is so fast!
Anyway, while you watch the clip for yourself, I'm going to go put the finishing touches on some Watergate zingers.
An all-new South Park airs next Wednesday at 10/9c.

Not since Brigham Young founded the the state of Deseret (later to be renamed "Utah") in the mid-19th Century — with the possible exception of the three-year run of ABC's Donny and Marie television show — has The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints been so ascendant.
First of all, we've got Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman, both Mormons, looking to be top-tier candidates for the Republican presidential nomination. Add to that a Mormon Senate Majority Leader, a Mormon infotainment prophet/rodeo clown dominating conservative airwaves, and Mormon created-and-backed political juggernaut influencing social issue policy nationwide. What more could you ask for as a Mormon?
Performances begin at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York City on February 24, 2011. Tickets are available now!
