Let's have some sense of scale here

Yet again American conservatives dismay me with the overreaction to something trivial. Storm in teacup is putting it mildly. The issue? Google's habit of changing their logo to commemorate certain events. A little while ago was the 50th anniversary of the launch of Sputnik. Google produced this new logo to commemorate the event.And now conservatives are complaining that Google is not patriotic enough. They're saying because a bunch of geeks celebrated the launch of the first satellite, they are a bunch of dirty commies who hate America (I may be adding a little hyperbole here).

Really. I mean just what is their problem? Do conservatives have nothing better to do than bitch about the pictures a company puts up on their website for a day or so? Have they solved all the other problems facing society? They should get some perspective, some sense of scale. This is not a big deal, it shouldn't be a problem. And yet, they get worked up about it. I wish I knew why.
