Rachael Ray, Yasir Arafat, And Michelle Malkin (Or "... Mmm ... Forbidden Doughnut ...")

Conservative blogger Michelle Malkin seems to think that Rachael Ray chose her fashions poorly for a Dunkin' Donuts commercial. Bowing to pressure, Dunkin' Donuts pulled the ad.

Ms. Malkin thought that Rachael's scarf resembled a kaffiyeh, stating that she was "hoping her hate couture choice was spurred more by ignorance than ideology". Dunkin's Sr. VP for Communications Margie Myers disagreed, stating that it "was selected by a stylist for the advertising shoot" and that "asolutely no symbolism was intended".

What do you think? Did RR make an unforgivable fashion faux pas or is MM off her gourd?

Here's a picture of RR from the commercial wearing her scarf and a picture of Yasir Arafat wearing his kaffiyeh. You decide.

symbolism is a very powerful force in our world but i think, in this instance and that it's a fucking DD commercial...MM is reading a bit too much into what is basically just a scarf.

and since when is Rachael fucking Ray blog worthy?

MM is paranoid! She needs to get a life and focus on real life altering events rather than watching commercials and dissecting them.

What's next? The VW bug is sending out communist suggestions via it's accent?

Bitch please!

That's is all.

Ummm...it's a scarf with a black and white pattern on it and fringe.

Somebody forgot to take their anti-crazy meds that day.
