I don’t have anyone specific for this one–but the award goes to anyone who thinks that this picture of Rachel Ray:
is A. an attempt by Dunkin Donuts to subversively turn us all into terrorists, B. a statement by Ray or Dunkin Donuts in support of radical Islam, or C. anything else other than the sort of scarf every woman in America has buried in her closet somewhere.
Apparently, this whole mess started when Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin said that the scarf looked like a “keffiyeh”–which, if you are like 99.999 percent of the USA, you’ve never heard of. Apparently its something that a few Islamic extremists have worn. (What makes it a keffiyeh and not just a fringed scarf is beyond me.) If anything, I think the Islamic extremists should be made fun of for shopping in the ladies accessory bins at Ross Dress for Less. But, Ms. Malkin has her little unthinking sheep fans up in arms and pledging to boycott Dunkin Donuts and Rachel Ray, and so DD has pulled the ad.
A lot of talk over nothing. Must be a slow news week. OK, I promise not to get political again. Today at least.
