Did you see The New York Times article on how some conservatives are trying to read socially conservative messages into the “March of the Penguins”?

And Andrew Coffin argued in World Magazine that the movie made “a strong case for intelligent design.” But as conservative columnist George Will observed: “If an Intelligent Designer designed nature, why did it decide to make breeding so tedious for those penguins?”
