Rachael Ray: Terrorist?

Rachael Ray in the cancelled Dunkin\' Donuts AdYou know it’s a slow news day when Fox News a/k/a Faux News is claiming that Rachael Ray is a terrorist.

Squeaky-voiced, perky, and–to some–intensely annoying; Rachael Ray is certainly the last person I would peg as a terrorist.  Certainly the last person I would have pegged to promote terrorism.  Thank goodness the brilliant minds at Faux News took time out of their busy schedules to come up with this important story.

Uh-huh…

The scoop is this:  In an ad for Dunkin’ Donuts that aired on websites this week, Rachael Ray is shown wearing a scarf that conservative commentator Michelle Malkin claims looks like a kaffiyeh, which is traditionally worn by Arab men.  Another report says it looks similar to the scarf worn by the late Yassir Arafat.  Because of the flak from Ms. Malkin and other conservative critics, Dunkin’ Donuts pulled the spot from the airwaves.

I never saw the commercial, and this image doesn’t show the scarf clearly enough for me to decide one way or the other, but please.  What a crock of shit.  It’s a scarf.  I doubt very highly it was placed to imply anything at all- certainly not in support of terrorism.  Does this mean that Dunkin’ Donuts is going to bomb us all with Boston Cremes and Coolatas?  Please.

So this is what Faux news has come to:  McCarthy-like attacks?  And on Rachael Ray of all people?

Hold on, folks, it’s going to be a bumpy ride from here until November.

  1. I saw this earlier this week……This is news? I thought there was a war going on?

    Apparently people have nothing better to do than speculate on what the hidden meaning is behind RR wearing a scarf in the spring time!

    Geez people, get a life!

  3. I’m sorry, i’m failing to understand why this would be an issue in the first place. Even if it was a kaffiyeh, who the fuck cares? Michelle Malkin is ridiculous, but i’m quite surprised she went this far.

    When will Faux news quit trying to scare people into believing that anything that has an Arab connection is terrorist related? Probably when the also begin realizing that there is terrorism comitted by the old stuffy men sitting in the whitehouse. So never?
