Feathers fly over pinko penguins
WHAT is it with penguins and politics? Last year, certain nuttier commentators on the American right tried to argue that March of the Penguins proved that there was no such thing as evolution and that Dick Cheney was the risen Christ (or something). Now the same zealots are suggesting that George Miller’s hit animation Happy Feet, in which penguins encounter global warming, is anti-family, anti-religion and anti- Bush.
Michael Medved, the 138-yearold conservative blowhard, leapt upon the bandwagon with predictable enthusiasm. The film he hilariously dubs “Crappy Feet” is, apparently, the “darkest, most disturbing feature-length animated film ever offered by a major studio.” Irish Communists can expose their children to Happy Feet from next Friday.
