...from the OMFG-please-give-me-a-fucking-break-dept.

Dunkin Donuts puts out an ad featuring Rachael Ray wearing a black paisley scarf. US neo-cons claim that said scarf is a keffiyeh and is Ray's clandestine way of expressing support for violent Palestinian extremists. Dunkin Donuts pulls the ad.

I told someone at work about this today and he thought that I was putting him on. Story from the CBC here; from Newsday with a side-by-side photo of Ray and Arafat here.

What a bunch of bullshit. I feel a sudden urge to go keffiyeh shopping.
