Who CARES!?!?!

"Dunkin' Donuts pulled a television spot featuring talk show host and Food Network personality Rachael Ray this weekend after a Fox news commentator associated it with terrorists."


Wait, I'm sorry. (re-reads article, and finds different article.)


Am I the only one who finds this absolutely ludicrous??? It's freaking Rachael Ray! And while I'm not exactly a fan (the term "EVOO" irritates the bajeezus out of me), come on. Really? Is there nothing else going on in the world that some twit from Fox News (it would be Fox News, by the way) has to attack a SCARF?

Come on, people. It's not a "kiffiyeh." It's an ugly scarf that some costume designer pulled out of her Marshall's bag-o-tricks because RR had a flippin hickey or some crap. I read Michelle Malkin's actual article about this, and I can *almost* see what she's saying. But like I said before. It's a SCARF. There is no political message behind it. There is no "hate couture" movement. An ugly scarf is sometimes just an ugly scarf.

I can't believe that time was expended on this. I can't believe I'VE spent this much time on it. RIDICULOUS.

Don't take my word for it, though... what do you think?

Please tell me there is a future where we can say/wear/[insert verb here] without worry of it being misconstrued. Or resulting in a boycott.

It doesn't help that Malkin's article is snide! Geez.

If I can quote a clip they play on Kevin & Bean:

Why are you bad, America?

What I find ludicrous is they let RR go on film dressed like that. She looks ridiculous.

I hate RR. I strangely like the scarf. (I find it a brilliant match that she should be a spokesperson for Dunkin' Donuts.) And as for Fox and members of its captive audience (aside from people like us who are captive only in as much as we are struck by awe and horror at the capacity of humanity to be useless and inept), I would shake my fist at them, but it is not worth the
!@#$%*& effort.

America, freedom ISN'T free. It costs a buck o' five..... (on par with a Dunkin' Coffee...or 1/4th of a gallon of gas)....
