Check out this story from MSNBC:  Rachel Ray ad pulled as pundit sees terror link.  Food Network celeb Rachel Ray has been doing some commercials for Dunkin’ Donuts.  In one Dunkin’ Donuts TV ad, she appears with a black and white scarf around her neck.  Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin claims that the scarf is an Arab kaffiyeh and says that it’s a symbol of terrorism.  What a load of shit!  But the dumbest part of the whole issue is that Dunkin’ Donuts decided to cave into the Fox News propaganda machine and pulled the ad, even though the company explained that the scarf was not a kaffiyeh.  My question is, so what if it was?  Now a piece of clothing makes someone a terrorist?  What has this country come to that we make decisions based on silly fictional statements blurted from the mouths of people who want to stir our hatred?

Taking a chill pill,
