Personally, I Think He Never Forgave Them for the South Park Episode Titled, Roger Ebert Should Lay Off the Fatty Foods

You need to read Roger Ebert's review of Team America: World Police to see what happens when a liberal takes himself and his policy positions a little too seriously. Since I haven't seen the movie yet, I don't think I should fisk his criticism, but it still makes for educational reading.

Poor Roger is so preoccupied with the skewering of his liberal shibboleths he didn't even notice that one of the primary targets of satire in Team America: World Police is Hollywood itself. Maybe Roger was too incensed about his sacred cows being carved up and served rare to notice.

"Their characters, one-third lifesize, are clearly artificial"

Well, at least he noticed that!

Best line ever in an Ebert review:
"The White House gets a free pass, since the movie seems to think Team America makes its own policies without political direction."

Dude...they're puppets.
