    And Red Eye is actually decent, the best show on Fox in my opinion. After Fox News Watch, the only other half-way respectable show.

    I decided I liked Red Eye when I was first watching it and they had some liberal comic on, and he completely ripped on Fox with a good one-liner, and the host and commentators laughed and went with it and took it in good humor.
    Yeah, it's not bad. Also, Kerry Howley used to be on regularly, and she is not only funny, but probably the hottest libertarian woman in America. She was reason enough to watch when she guested.

    I thought Miller was marginally funny back before he flipped flopped his politics. I saw him on O'Reilly recently, and he was just on a angry sarcastic non-witty tirade. And South Park attacks liberals sometimes, and is a funny show, but it's hardly a conservative show.

    Did he "flip-flop?" He was never a liberal. Someone on his old HBO show asked him flat-out if he were a conservative or libertarian, and he said he was a "pragmatic moderate." He moved right, especially on foreign policy, but it's not as if the guy has been an Air America commentator before. BTW, "Air America" has to be the most unintentionally ironic and hilarious name for a left-wing network ever.

    It's pretty libertarian in its mindset. To the best of my knowledge, Matt Stone is a registered Republican, and Trey Parker is a libertarian (and possibly member of the Libertarian Party).

    Some conflicting reports on party affiliation, but they support small-l libertarianism pretty consistently.

    Black was awsome. The definition of logic itself. I'm thinkin, believe it or not, (I)NFP.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Did you ever see the Fox News equivalent to The Daily Show? Half-Hour News Hour, I think it was called.
    Your right. That fox half hour sucked. Do you still enjoy SNL? I think it died rite around when Ferrel, Meadows, Oterri and McDonald left.

    I just know that Miller used to be a Democrat. I think he was known as being a typical liberal Hollywood guy, but I don't care enough about him to look that up.

    The South Park guys also support the liberal leader of one of the largest liberal Think Tanks. I wouldn't call the show libertarian bent, they go after free-market capitalism too. If anything, I might call it centrist. Definitely socially liberal.

    From what I have read, he was a Democrat, but was always rather centrist. Al Franken said that people have asked him, "What happened to Dennis?" and his response was "What do you mean? Dennis always had a conservative streak."

    South Park has a decidedly libertarian bent. It's quite clear when you watch the show. It's not propaganda, but it's there, and Matt and Trey admit as much in the interview with Jesse Walker. They go after certain corporations and industries regularly, but I've never seen anything anti-capitalistic on that show. Are you sure you are watching it without the liberal goggles on?

    A good episode where they went after capitalists and the idea of monopolies, was in their Wal-Mart episode.

    That episode wasn't anti-capitalist in the least. In fact, it was pretty pro-Wal-Mart. The moral of the story is that consumer choice is a good thing. Did you even watch that episode?

    In the episode, South Park gets turned into a ghost town because of Wal-Mart. As with many issues, they make the anti and pro case.

    Regardless, it's not a conservative show. And I don't think there is even currently a comedy show that comes from a conservative perspective on air.
