Cartoon Wars, Part Two

What a fucking letdown.

    No kidding -- even if the letdown was entirely predictable. Lately it seems like every time they try to send a message, they back down in the end. They basically said that no one should really drive hybrid cars, even though they're helpful, because it's impossible to drive with your head up your own ass. As for the Cartoon Wars, they basically called out the country for being afraid of showing Mohammed cartoons only to resolve their own dilemma through self-censorship. They want to have their cake and eat it, too. And they never really developed the Family Guy critique, either; they just kept repeating it over and over. Weak.

    I personally liked the critique of Family Guy, because it seemed like they were extending an olive branch. First off, they made Cartman the one who hated it; second off, they had one character say "It may just be random jokes, but I like that"; third off, they acknowledged their own tendency to "get all up their own asses" with messages. As for the manatees, that's just good clean fun.
