Thank you, Michelle, for pulling the donut ad. I feel a lot safer now. Glad to see you put all your time, energy, and misguided passion into this. Michelle Malkin, another fine example of conservatism run amok.

I knew it. I always was suspect of her.
Her and Paula Dean both are muslim extremist supporters.
And Bobby Flay is a satan worshipper.

OK so basically those complaining are claiming that a scarf that is symbolic of Arab men in general is also a symbol of supporting terrorism? So... all Arab men = terrorists now? Wonderful. I don't understand why this kind of racism is not only tolerated but even pandered to. Shame on Dunkin Doughnuts for going along with this garbage.

That's just not true. Rachel Ray can't cook to save her life.

The photo was probably being used in Arab countries trying to sell DD franchises. Seems like alot of them are Arab owned as it is.

No, no, no...please, PLEASE do not confuse stupidity, ignorance and politics that appeal to baser people with real "conservatism". The label Conservative has been hijacked by religious zealots and simple-minded buffoons who have limited mental capacity. It's come to the point where I refuse to state a political ideology for fear of being lumped in with these people who have no real business participating in the political process, as it is far beyond their limited understanding.

As time goes on, I identify more and more with what I used to consider "liberals" as they at least do not pander to mental midgets in order to retain power in the face of lies, deception, corporate takeover of our government, and to cover up their total failure at everything. Your "average conservative" now-a-days could care less whether they have a job (or whether their kids have jobs in the future) so long as gays can't get married. "Conservative" politics has been reduced to an idiots' game played by the lowest common denominators in our society.

Tell that to the families of Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, et al. No doubt they'd want to know.

Guess I better throw out all my scarves for fear of being mistaken as a terrorist. Wonder what I should do with the plane in my backyard? Just a thought.

I think Rachel Ray is secretly arafat's daughter. She will trick us all into poisoning ourselves with one of her passover recipes. Thank God we caught this in time!
