He is a member of a very professional thief ring, (Along with other famous people like Sarah Palin and John McCain), and he and McCain have planned it so that when one of them wins the electoral campaign, the entire world will become as distracted as possible. This will leave them the chance to successfully pull off an intricate plot to steal the Hope Diamond at the Smithsonian Institute. They succeed and fake their deaths, thanks to Ike Broflovski, and plan to travel to an exotic island to live out the remainder of their lives. Obama, however, decides to actually give the presidency a shot along with Michelle Obama.

When Kyle suggests that they need to learn to control their impulses, he and Butters are taken to where the "alien" is housed at Independence Hall.
