Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

The Terrorists are Obviously Winning

Yes, they are winning. They have successfully recruited Dunkin' Donuts and Rachael Ray -- you and I will be powerless against the subliminal messages Al Quida is placing in our media!!

We should just put the white flag up now!

Here's from the Boston Globe:

Does Dunkin’ Donuts really think its customers could mistake Rachael Ray for a terrorist sympathizer? The Canton-based company has abruptly canceled an ad in which the domestic diva wears a scarf that looks like a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men.

Some observers, including ultra-conservative Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin, were so incensed by the ad that there was even talk of a Dunkin’ Donuts boycott.

‘‘The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad,’’ Malkin yowls in her syndicated column.

The company at first pooh-poohed the complaints, claiming the black-and-white wrap was not a keffiyeh. But the right-wing drumbeat on the blogosphere continued and by yesterday, Dunkin’ Donuts decided it’d be easier just to yank the ad.

Michelle Malkin is an idiot. She was the same idiot when she howled about the Pennsylvania monument to the 9-11 deaths because the observation deck looked crescent shaped to her. She says these outrageous things to get attention. I'm ashamed Dunkin' Donuts listened to her instead of laughing at her idiocy.

Next thing we'll have to ban Persian carpets, sandals, cell phones, sand, olives -- all things used by those hated "terrorists" -- what about clothes? Don't terrorists all wear clothes? ARGH!! Hurry STRIP or you'll be recruiting for the terrorists and they'll WIN!!

I suggest the better solution is to boycott Malkin and have a iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts.

What an idiot!
