Life's not easy if you're an organic-eating, tree-hugging, SUV-eschewing, carbon-footprintless, gender-identity-indifferent, diversity-celebrating, nonjudgmental (well, except for those damn U.S. flag pins) vegan pacifist. Just ask Gerald and Helen Goode, the First Couple of PC America.
They forget to check a box when adopting an African baby, and when little Ubuntu arrives, he's a white South African. They cart home free elephant dung from Barnum & Bailey for their organic garden, then remember that the circus exploits animals. They've raised their dog Che to be a vegan, but the neighborhood sure has a lot of missing squirrels.
Welcome to The Goode Family, a scathingly funny report from the front lines of America's culture wars. This new ABC adult cartoon, produced by Beavis and Butt-Head mastermind Mike Judge and his King of the Hill buddies John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky,...
Though it will no doubt be labeled right-wing agitprop by some of its trashed targets, The Goode Family is not really conservative, but something closer to the barbed libertarianism of South Park. What the show is really mocking is groupthink conformity...Set in a more-progressive-than-thou college town where shoppers at the supermarket gasp in horror if somebody arrives at the checkout counter without his own reusable grocery bag, The Goode Family mercilessly lampoons characters who conduct their lives by the watchword WWAGD, What Would Al Gore Do?...
...When Gerald, a college administrator, tells his boss his department needs more funding to improve the percentage of minority employees, the boss replies: ``Or we could just fire three white guys. Everybody wins!'' How long do you think it will be before we hear a joke like that from Jay or Dave?

That show sounds like it’s bordering on being a hate crime.
I find Mike Judge productions to be not bad, but not funny either. If King of the Hill had been a drama, there’d have been a reason to watch it. As it was, I can find more satisfying material not to laugh at.
Should be a funny show, but it’s typical of Judge to temper his criticism of liberalism by getting in some barbs at Christians. Calling the abstinence group “creepy” and saying they marry their fathers is absurd.
1 Cor. 1:18 “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing..”
I thought it was pretty funny when Grampa stole Gen. Santana’s wooden leg.
Don’t think I’ll be wasting my time to watch it.
When I looked for it, I couldn’t find it on the website, so I grabbed the one in the Miami Herald. It is the same article. My search skills must be rusty, because I kept getting a different article on the same show.
They drive a Yugo?
>That show sounds like its bordering on being a hate crime.
Now you’re just TRYING to get me to watch it, aren’t you? ;)
Ubuntu the adopted white South African sounds like comedy gold.
Yeah man, I tell ya what, man. That dang ol’ King of the Hill, man. You just go there and change the channel. You got NBCABCCBSFOX. Need a dang remote.
You sound like a real fun person to be around.....NOT!
And yet you wasted time reading the post and replying to it.
Where's the logic in that?
