Leave the Valentine's Day Google Doodle Alone

More

In a low-point for American democracy, the easily-offended citizens of this nation have directed their wrath at Google's painfully-innocent Valentine's Day doodle. The "edgy" 1-minute animation shows a boy and girl fall in love, followed by a 5-second collage of couples embracing including at least one gay couple (we can't be sure about the genders of the puppy-kitty and milk-cookie pairs). Zut alors!

Though you can only see the gay couple for 3 seconds, that's plenty enough time for the professionally-honed gaydar of Newsbuster's Tim Graham, who chastises the "PC-approved" animation for its gay agenda-setting ways. "Valentine's Day is a big day that gay-left advocates expect their love to be honored as just the same," says Graham, the director of media analysis for the conservative media watchdog group.
