A Great Column by Keith Olberman

I haven't read much by this guy from MSNBC, but after reading this column from his "blog", I must say that he is a pretty bright guy. (And not just because I agree with him.) This missive is regarding the "three-card Monte players" at Focus on the Family and that kook Dr. Dobson. The link to the column is below. The Money quote:

However, the Three-Card Monte Players at Dr. James Dobson's "Focus On The Family" have reopened the can of worms that is SpongeBobGate, and have focused not on the family but on me, and in so doing embarrassed themselves and undermined the validity of their own concerns.
Dobson, you will recall, joined the singularly inoffensive animated character "SpongeBob SquarePants" to his conspiracy theories of a "pro-homosexual" agenda, in order to get headlines. When he got those headlines, he promptly complained about getting them. Dobson, like many other exploiters of Amoral Values, ran immediately to the easiest way out of a stupid fix of his own creation: he blamed the big old ugly media.
