HOW STUPID!!!!!! Will people never stop complaining just be be complaining. I'm sure the only intent she or anyone else had with the scarf was to match the outfit. Why do we continually JUMP on anything said or done and start pointing fingers and saying "Sympathizer?" Maybe those pointing the fingers should look in the mirror at their every thought, action and word and see if maybe they are judging themselves inadvertently.

I think it's a shame when an obvious narrow minded fool such as Michelle Malkin makes a stupid comment and a leading company such as Dunkin Donuts actual responds.
The only response that should have been offered is a laugh at the complete lack of intelligence on Malkin's behalf.
Intelligent Americans do not point fingers and call names based merely on someone's dress style.
Shame on Dunkin Donuts for caving to such non-sense and giving this fool the perception of power.

If Americans are ignorant idiots, how far below us are the British? Now, go see if you can find the only dentist in that second-world country of yours and get your teeth fixed!

I assure you all Americans do not think this way. Unfortunatly the fools and bigots have big mouths and of course get the media attention. I'd like to see a poll on this, I'm betting it would show this is a non-issue.

I have many friends in various countries and Britian is not the only place where Americans are viewed as loud and ignorant. Since Bush, we have lost most of our credibility and look terrible to the world.

Name calling doesn't change that, only our behavior will.

I disagree. Name calling can be good for the soul.

Please. I have no sympathy for people who lack a sense of humor. Can't relate. Everything is an insult in their eyes. Any woman who stands up for these clowns should move to a Muslim country and see how their treatment of women works out for them.
