Boycott Dunkin' Donuts!

Look, I'm no fan of Rachael Ray, though her taste in indie music is really pretty good -- but the decision by Dunkin Donuts to pull a TV ad where she promotes iced coffee, because her scarf allegedly looks like a Palestinian keffiyeh, is just plain offensive. Who started this mess? A conservative columnist well-known to be more mentally disturbed than Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh put together -- Michelle Malkin. There is no reason for corporations to kowtow to this kind of claptrap. Even if someone on a TV ad had a button that said "Free Palestine," so the fuck what? Israel sure gets enough free publicity! But Rachael wasn't even guilty of such a so-called sin. She just had a wardrobe malfunction, at least in the eyes of the lunatic ultra-right. Shame on you, Dunkin Donuts. I won't say the same for Michelle Malkin, since she is too mentally, ethically, and spiritually damaged to know shame.

"It's refreshing to see an American company show sensitivity to the concerns of Americans opposed to Islamic jihad and its apologists."

Are you kidding me????
