Begin this Culture War has...

Are you frickin' kidding me? Washington > Conservatives Pick Soft Target: A Cartoon Sponge.

But what about all of the ways in which "Sponge Bob" embodies the conservative ideals of the Republican party? He likes to work long hours for little or no pay! Isn't that the very can-do spirit that made America great? His boss loves money to the exclusion of almost everything else, the only exception being -- his daughter! What better example of family values is there? And Sandy Cheeks is from Texas! A shout out to our Dear Fearless Leader if ever there was one!

And didn't George H.W. Bush try and tangle with "The Simpsons" and end up looking really stupid? I mean, they're cartoons, for pete's sake. Of course, Dobson may not be as stupid as we'd like to make him out to be. If I remember correctly, the "Sponge Bob" TV show has ceased production. Dobson makes his stink and will get to go around proclaiming, "Since I revealed the insidious gay agenda of fictitious animated undersea creatures, not one single new episode has been made! We are all powerful! Bwahahahahaha!"

Or something like that.

Don't forget today's CNN poll:

SpongeBob SquarePants is:
Promoting the acceptance of homosexuality
Promoting tolerance and diversity
Absorbent, yellow and porous
So far, "absorbent, yellow and porous" is winning by a wide margin.
