‘South Park’ creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, accurately predicted President Obama’s win in 2008, with their season twelve episode ‘About Last Night…’. The duo has announced a second term victory for Obama with their latest ‘South Park’ installment, airing on November 7th, entitled ‘Obama Wins!’.

‘Obama Wins!’ follows Eric Cartman (Parker) as he schemes to affect the elections outcome, much to the dismay of friend/arch nemesis, Kyle (Stone).

‘The Simpsons’ also incorporated the 2012 election in a recent episode that satirized the race between Obama and Romney, and featured Mr. Burns endorsing the latter.
