    Did anyone else notice that when Cartman traveled to Ohio to steal the ballots, the show established the location with a drawing of the actual Columbus skyline in the South Park style? Pretty cool. The people standing in line there to vote appeared to be mostly farmers, but still pretty cool. Has the actual skyline ever appeared in a movie or tv show before?

    They also put Ohio in Central Time, apparently. Actually I have heard quite a few people think of Ohio as in CST. (Or maybe there were referring to something else? Isn’t South Park in Colorado? That would be Mountain Time, no?)

    But wow, most accurate (visual) representation I’ve ever seen of Columbus in a show, and an animated one at that. Not too long ago (last season I wanna say) They featured Columbus in Family Guy, and the skyline was next to nothing and not at all accurate. I expected more out of Seth McFarlane!

    Lookit. No building in there looks anything like Columbus!

    I’d imagine there are more than a few photos from that vantage point floating around on the intertubes, but I’d like to think they used this one as reference.

    I actually googled images of Columbus skyline and none of them matched…that one matches perfectly!

    Too cool.

    That’s also exactly the view CNN was putting their reporters in front of when they were hear for a few days. So national viewers of both got a double dose, real and drawn.

    this surprisingly accurate cartoon portrayal of the election process includes the “welcome to ohio” sign… from a few years ago with Ted Strickland’s name on it.
