Wing-bots, bad fashion and lunatic paranoia

So Michelle Malkin used her soapbox to freak out over Rachel Ray’s wearing of an ugly paisley scarf in a Dunkin’ Donuts ad. Personally, I thought the scarf was ugly and why someone would wear something that looked like they were freezing while wearing a V-neck T-shirt and standing in front of cherry blossoms was beyond my personal comprehension (fashion, politcal or otherwise), “it’s Muslim” or “it’s a terrorist thing” never entered my thoughts for a second…. nor did it apparently any other reasonable human being.

All it took was one paranoid rot-wing “pundit” whining that it was somehow a “terrorist” thing….. OMG! PAISLEY!!!! Be afraid, be very afraid! And next thing you know their little robot bloggers (wing-bots) are sending hate-spewing e-mail and paranoid ramblings to Dunkin’ Donuts…. the decision makers for which folded under the irrational pressure.

Well, guess what Dunkin’ Donuts — you just did lose a customer — me…. I don’t need to do business with companies that bend over for that kind of stupidity. Will my occassional purchase of a couple of boston creme donuts no longer happening break the bank — I’m sure not… but if enough people respond that way, maybe it’ll make a point.

Personally, I remember scarves around the neck like that from fashion in the 70s and 80s…. I thought it was ugly then too…. bad retro…. a crime? I think not. Michelle Malkin expresssing her opinion… no matter how completely daft it is? No, still not criminal…. all the little wing-bots who on reading Malkin’s column went running off like good little brainless psycho’s in attack mode?…. also not criminal in the legal sense of the word…. in the ethical sense… for refusing to stop and think for themselves…. it oughta be. Shame on the lot of you, and shame on Dunkin’ Donuts management for folding to a bunch of nuts who clearly are incapable of reading the ravings of their rot-wing pundits with any kind of personal thought attached to their responses.

Oh, and for the record, MONTHS ago…. Rachel Ray and Dunkin’ Donuts did THIS:

Such terrorist activity! Okay, so maybe taking that into account, I went too easy on Michelle Malkin….. she needs to pay more attention to reality before going off on one of her paranoid rants. Rachel Ray, the chirpy cherub of cheesy cooking…. as a terrorist sympathizer…. Next thing you know they’ll be claiming Tinky Winky and Barney are gay…. oh, wait a minute….good grief! I guess ugly paisley scarves have mystical powers and can turn even supporters of our military into “terrorist sympathizers”…… ROFLMAO!

Vote DAMMIT!

Okay, so I don’t like any of the top 3 candidates either. In fact, I’m quite perturbed that by the time the primaries were held in my State, anyone I would have wanted to vote for had already dropped out…. I’ve come to the conclusion that primaries should all be held on the same day so that voters in every state can get a chance to vote for the full range of candidates, instead of the voters in States with later primaries getting a filtered down, and this round completely insufficient, roster of candidates to select from.

But, that not being the case (at least not this time around, perhaps a serious change is due), we’re left with the current top 3 candidates….. and I’m not thrilled with any of them. But I WILL vote… I just may not vote for President. In fact, I think if everyone in the country went to the polls, voted for everything else on the ballot and did NOT vote for a Presidential candidate, it would send one hell of a message about how completely disillusioned voters are with the status quo and the candidates at hand.

I’m prepared to do that…. anyone else?
