The plot of the story revolves around a South Park character stealing voting ballots from swing states to help President Barrack Obama get re-elected.

But this should not surprise, after the 2008 election, South Park aired the episode "About Last Night," which also had nothing to do with politics, but presented President Obama and Republican nominee, Senator John McCain as jewel thiefs.
The episode managed to bag positive reviews, Hollywood News reported, "Just one day after the 2012 election, South Park not only delivered a hilarious riff on the quadrennial event, but one that somehow taps into the nature of it."
