  • Song at the end is Debussy's "Clair de Lune", also played at the end of Oceans 12.
  • Kenny does not appear in this episode and Cartman only appears in one scene.
  • The airplane remotely destroyed by Ike Broflovski is a Bombardier Learjet 45.
  • Airplanes seen at the Washington D.C. Airport include the Boeing 757 and Boeing 777.
  • The song Randy sings while partying is a parody of Barry Manilow's "Mandy" (replacing "Oh, Mandy" with "Obama").


  • In the episode, Obama says that the hope diamond is the 4th most valuable diamond in the world, but in actuality, it's the 3rd. At the time of production, however, it may've been the fourth most valuable.
  • Before entering the Oval Office, Obama is wearing a suit and tie. However, when he enters it, there is no tie. The same happened when exiting with Michelle (Tie) and went to the limo (No Tie).
  • As the Obama supporters come to gather near the Marshes house when Randy leaves, a woman in the background looks suspiciously like Mrs. Tenorman, who was killed, chopped into chilli, and fed to her son according to Cartman's revenge plan.


  • According to Trey Parker, this was the only version of the episode produced, as a McCain version proved "too daunting a task." The episode was completed the morning of the day it aired, with Comedy Central seeing only excerpts of the show beforehand.[1]
  • In an IGN interview, Matt Stone revealed that they at one point considered adding a scene spoofing The Dark Knight where the then-President George Bush takes the blame of the Hope Diamond being stolen as a way to 'fuck with people' due to the public's general dislike of Bush at the time.[2]
  • Trey Parker was set on producing this episode as a response to a joke on Family Guy in which Stewie was dressed in a Nazi uniform that sported a McCain-Palin button.
