LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Conservative Christian groups accuse the makers of a video starring SpongeBob SquarePants, Barney and a host of other cartoon characters of promoting homosexuality to children.Meanwhile, it's pathetic but GW Sr. is out trying to bring clarity to his son's inauguration speech. It's like the parent who gets called by the police and the parent then has to explain the child meant no harm. For all of the first term, Bush Sr. remained quiet, letting his son create quite a mess of things everywhere he turned. It appears as if Papa Bush has finally seen enough and perhaps will be more vocal in trying to at least salvage what he can of his son's eight years.
Frankly, it would be we welcomed to have the father take more of an active role in running the country. In contrast to his son, Bush Sr.'s term in office is looking like a spectacular success! In fact, the current debacle in Iraq is making GHW's decision to pullback during the first Gulf War look like genius. Of course, this is not to say that GHW's presidency was actually something to celebrate, but it's all relative.
Despite the father's efforts to quell fears, scary Cheney is out saying quite the opposite (typical of an administration that consistently speaks out of both sides of the mouth -- double-speak and confusion is what they desire).
