The Boys attended the Colorado Republican debate, while the candidates for the United States Republican Presidential nominees debated the issues and talked about their platforms. At the end of the debates, Eric Cartman jumped on stage and had his picture taken by Stan Marsh, while performing the latest meme craze, "Faith Hilling". "Faith Hilling" is a pose where the subject pinches the shirt at the nipples and stretches them out to resemble breasts.
Later, the Cat/Republican debates are held at presumably the same venue, with Ron Paul being replaced by the cat that started Ol' Long Johnsoning. This may be a subtle reference to the fact that Ron Paul is frequently ignored by the media, seeing that Matt and Trey have Libertarian leanings.
