Continued flapadoodles--Cute animated movie edition

You know, these Kool-Aid servers are starting to sound alike. Glenn Beck has joined Neil Cavuto in calling "Happy Feet" "an animated version of An Inconvenient Truth." I suspect the obsession with Al Gore's movie is a holdover from the Clinton years. Blaming Clinton is passe, so now they're obsessing over all things Gore. Including a movie about cute little penguins.

Anyway, there was a CNN segment on this latest fuss and they pointed out that there's no mention of global warming anywhere in the movie.

Oh, but it gets better. Soooooooo much better. Michael Medved claims "there’s a subtext that appears to plead for endorsement of gay identity." Yes, that again. A subtle endorsement of the homo-sek-shul lifestyle--which is mainly apparent to professional bloviators--seems to be lurking under the surface of even the most innocuous kiddie movies.

Okay, now it's settled. I have to see this movie. I'm sure it'll be an adorable, clever, well-animated, and hilarious movie about plucky penguins and it won't have any dubious social messages. And it'll be good to giggle at the expense of the Cavutos, Becks, and Medveds once the movie's over.
