Shame on Dunkin' Donuts

Yes, thanks to the Rachael Ray terrorist plot/scarf, they've pulled the ad in question. Proof positive that corporate America will cave in to any demand, no matter how laughable, so long as the word "boycott" is invoked.

I didn't think Michelle Malkin could ever do anything more loathsome than write a book called "In Defense of Internment," but pushing this nonsense is somehow even worse.

You should never underestimate how loathsome Michelle Malkin can be.

Dunkin' Donuts is in business to make money, not to take stands on fashion. The first thing I thought of when I saw the ad was Yassir Arafat. Of course, it didn't change my opinion of their coffee -- it's still sour and undrinkable -- but why would any business want to be even subconsciously associated with a terrorist?

Of course, Michelle Malkin could do a lot things more loathesome. She could kill someone, for starters. I don't like her business of professional outrage, but we're talking about donuts and coffee here. If the company felt their sales were threatened, why wouldn't they pull the ad? How do you know the people in charge weren't thinking "crap, this is totally @#$%ing stupid, but if sales will suffer..."?

How could anyone want to boycott DD?! I wish we had it here in CA. It's more disdainful that they chose RR to be their spokesperson in the first place. I can't stand her.

I'll trade you Dunkin' Donuts for Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf any day!

Rachel Ray is hot. She can wear whatever she wants, and I will buy whatever she is selling.
