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.
