Deadline Hollywood has a still of Clinton from 'South Park'

Hillary Clinton finally meets Cartman! South Park Studios and Comedy Central announced that the March 28 episode of the culturally satirical cartoon "South Park" is called "The Snuke" and involves a "24" parody where Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton visits the cartoon town of South Park, Colo., for a campaign rally. Ubiquitous entertainment reporter Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood describes the ep:

Mixing it up with those foul-mouthed brats this Wednesday, Hillary is in town for a big campaign rally. But Cartman suspects the new Muslim student is behind a terrorist threat. The clock is ticking as the citizens of South Park prepare for the Clinton rally. Every minute counts as Cartman uses his own methods to interrogate the suspect. But could the plan to target Clinton be just the tip of the iceberg? Comedy Central's website messsage board had this to say about upcoming episode: "Is there nowhere she won't campaign?"

"South Park" has tackled topics and people in ways that most of Hollywood will not, and they do it well. This has the potential to be another excellent episode of "South Park" if Trey Parker and Matt Stone give it a little effort. Even if isn’t their best episode ever, "South Park" is still a show worth watching, and the opportunity to see Cartman potentially running around as Jack Bauer is priceless, especially with Hillary Clinton in town. Two questions. Will a mountain lion be involved, and will Hillary find out that Cartman’s mom/dad slept with her husband while he was president? I can’t wait.
