She's Stalking Donuts Now!

The fall seems to be worse that previously thought.

We offered a Top Ten Clove List on some of the things we thought Michelle "Stalkin'" Malkin would do, after being fired from The O'Reilly Factor and, darn it, we didn't have in there that she would hassle, spewing her bile in the direction of Dunkin Donuts, and their advertising star, Rachel Ray.

Actually, M-Stalkin'-M was only picking up something Charles Johnson, of Un Poco Cojones Verde sent flying out into the alternate, Your-With-Us-Or-Against-Us, universe.

Dunkin' Donuts yanks Rachael Ray ad

Some observers, including ultra-conservative Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin, were so incensed by the ad that there was even talk of a Dunkin’ Donuts boycott.

‘‘The keffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad,’’ Malkin yowls in her syndicated column.

‘‘Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant and not-so-ignorant fashion designers, celebrities, and left-wing icons.’’

The company at first pooh-poohed the complaints, claiming the black-and-white wrap was not a keffiyeh. But the right-wing drumbeat on the blogosphere continued and by yesterday, Dunkin’ Donuts decided it’d be easier just to yank the ad.
I guess I missed that DHS memo, the one indicating to be wary of terrorists popping out of Boston Crème donuts.

I also have to wonder, did M-Stalkin'- M set out and stalk any 12-year-olds on this one, to see if they were wearing one of the jihadi chic keffiyehs, while eating a Dunkin Donut?

I think the boycott thing would have been great.

It would have pitted these dwarf, finks, phonies and frauds against the Bush Family, along with their pals, the Bin Ladins, being that The Carlyle Group is the owner of DD.

Renaissance, over on DKOS, pointed up some of the more famous owners;
More famous Carlyle members and alums, of course, include George H.W. Bush, Reagan defense secretary Frank Carlucci, James Baker III, some of the Binladins, Colin Powell, former British P.M. John Major, and several other ex-heads-of-state (e.g. Anand Panyarachun of Thailand, Fidel Ramos of the Phillipines, and Park Tae Joon of South Korea).
Since she's so good a whipping up things, perhaps Rachel Ray will come up with a zinger.

Something like, on her "30-Minute-Meals" program, wearing her verbotten jihadi chic keffiyeh, cook up a nice spread of Middle Eastern Food, and add a little twist on it, like celebrity helpers, say, Republican John Sununu and General John Abizaid, Army, Commander U.S. Central Command.

That oughta throw them in a tizzy.

One last thing there, M-Stalkin' M ....

Next time you go to the local Fractured Prune, may all the sprinkles fall off your favorite treat!
