Parker And Stone: Team America Is Not Anti-Bush

SOUTH PARK creators TREY PARKER and MATT STONE have ridiculed suggestions their forthcoming film TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE was designed to persuade voters against re-electing US President GEORGE W BUSH in next month's (NOV04) election.

The $32 million (GBP17.8 million) puppet movie mocks celebrities including MICHAEL MOORE, North Korean leader KIM JONG-II, and anti-war actors SEAN PENN, ALEC BALDWIN, TIM ROBBINS and GEORGE CLOONEY - but doesn't single out Bush for special treatment.

And Stone hopes controversial Team America: World Police, which is released in the US on 15 October (04) and features hardcore puppet sex, won't influence how the American public votes.

He tells website PAGESIX.COM, "If anyone walks out of this movie, or a Michael Moore movie, thinking about voting a certain way, then they're f**king stupid and shouldn't be voting.

"If this movie makes you think that much, then you're too weak-kneed to vote."
