Trey Parker - The Advocates
Biography, picture and quotes
"When PBS's Charlie Rose asked Trey Parker pointblank on a September 26, 2005 show if he was a libertarian, the outspoken co-creator of South Park was uncharacteristically coy. 'It's possible,' Parker admitted. It's not that he was embarrassed about being a libertarian. It's just, Parker told the host, that the question was, well, 'It's like: Are you gay?' Then he laughed uproariously."

Transcript of conversation with Trey Parker and Matt Stone, at Reason's Aug 2006 conference in Amsterdam
"Reason: Each of you at various points have called yourself libertarian. Is that an apt description? Parker: People started throwing that word around to describe us right around the second or third season. They would sit us down and go, 'So are you libertarian?' And I would always say, 'I don't know, am I? You've seen my stuff.' I still don't really know the answer to that question. I think I am, though."
