Rachel Ray's Jihad Scarf, Politics & Nuts
Leave it to the right-wing nutjobs at Fox News to label cooking show host Rachel Ray and Dunkin' Donuts as terrorist sympathizers. The specific nut is Michelle Malkin -- an ignorant, Christian terrorist parading as a journalist and "commentator" -- who had this say about Ray's choice of neckwear in a television ad for DD's coffee drinks: The kaffiyeh, for the clueless, is the traditional scarf of Arab men that has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad. Say which? If that's the case, then most of the cast of American Idol, countless college students,The Olsen Twins, David Beckham and untold pop stars are also planning to undermine Israel and the United States. Malkin's clueless ass should be run out of town on a rail and Dunkin' Donuts should be ashamed of itself for caving to this divisive rhetoric and pulling the ad. Sometimes, America scares the shit out of me.
File this bit under "Too Little, Too Late": Former Bush press secretary Scott McClellan's new memoir, What Happened, says Dubya and Co. lied to Americans while making its case to go to an unnecessary war in Iraq. Duh! He basically calls Dubya an idiot (duh, squared) and said his former boss was more concerned about his legacy as president than making a smart decision. Thanks for that, Scott. Why didn't you come clean in 2006 before you left the White House?
Hillary Clinton and her team have turned up the heat on getting the delegates seated from Florida and Michigan, who were sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee for holding their primaries early. CNN says it will close the delegate gap between Hilly and Obama, but not enough for her to overtake him.
John McCain has his own controversial pastor to deal with. I'm sure Obama is having a laugh at this. McCain spurned an endorsement from Rev. John Hagee -- the loon who said God sent Hitler to help lead the Jews to Israel, nevermind the six million who died in the process, and called the Catholic Church "the great whore" -- but Democratic turncoat and McCain ally Joe Lieberman is speaking at a conference with the right rev anyway. Ahhhhh...politics.
