If You Had to Choose

I wrote a couple of weeks ago about Christian evangelist James Dobson's attack on SpongeBob Squarepants, who is accused of being a sodomite and recruiter for the gay underworld. No -- really. Well, Dobson (big-bucks backer of PFOX, among many other organizations) is in the Times today: Conservatives Pick Soft Target: A Cartoon Sponge (NY Times, may require free registration).
Now, Dr. Dobson said, SpongeBob's creators had enlisted him in a "pro-homosexual video," in which he appeared alongside children's television colleagues like Barney and Jimmy Neutron, among many others. The makers of the video, he said, planned to mail it to thousands of elementary schools to promote a "tolerance pledge" that includes tolerance for differences of "sexual identity."

Mmm, yessir. It's that gay agenda, sir. Mmm, they're all in on it. Sir.

I don't know if you follow the blogosphere, but Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit is a pretty hardcore rightwinger conservative blogger. I can barely stand to read him, he's so entrenched in his view, but he does get a lot of traffic, and he does give you insights into how the other side lives.

His comment today is worth quoting, probably an accurate metaphorical assessment of the might of the right:
JAMES DOBSON IS BLOWING IT with his attacks on SpongeBob.

Not many people, forced to choose between SpongeBob Squarepants and James Dobson, are going to pick Dobson. Instapundit

Well, not me, that's fer dern sure.
