Kitchen sponge vs. dishcloth

Why do people use kitchen sponges? Are they somehow better than just using a regular dishcloth?

My husband and I are at odds over sponges and dishcloths, and perhaps you can explain this to me. I use just plain dish washcloths to wipe things up around the kitchen, and to do the big pots and pans that don't go into the dishwasher.
Today my husband brought home a big pack of kitchen sponges, the kind without the scrubby side. What is the advantage to using these? I know that I can nuke them in the microwave to get rid of the sponge funk,which is easier than washing them, but other than that I'm not really sure why I'd use one.
