are penguins conservative?

according to the new york times, conservatives have latched onto the documentary the march of the penguins as symbolic of a variety of conservative causes from intelligent design (and good taste too since the designer saw fit to put them in tuxedos) to sexual virtue.

"March of the Penguins," the conservative film critic and radio host Michael Medved said in an interview, is "the motion picture this summer that most passionately affirms traditional norms like monogamy, sacrifice and child rearing."

Speaking of audiences who feel that movies ignore or belittle such themes, he added: "This is the first movie they've enjoyed since 'The Passion of the Christ.' This is 'The 'Passion of the Penguins.' "

before conservatives embrace their feathered friends too passionately, they might want to check out this. penguins from central park to germany have been demonstrating the passion of the penguins indeed. and it appears that the gay penguins are no pink elephants.
