Political Correctness Run Amok

From the Department of PC Thought Crimes:

Time to make the donuts? Not so fast, terrorist!

I don't know which is more entertaining - the idea that conservative commentators can't tell paisley from middle-eastern designs, or the idea that Americans cannot tolerate anything even vaguely semitic with their coffee.

I'm just hoping it really turns out that Rachel Ray is a terrorist.

I usually like Malkin, even when I don't necessarily agree with her, but this was really over the top. In my opinion, she doesn't like Rachael Ray because of her partnership with Bill Clinton. The two of them are partners in some kind of nutritional program aimed at children. Malkin probably resents her because of that, and this was just thge first opportunity she could grasp to slam her, and it was really a stretch.

Ah, it probably doesn't hurt her to get attention this way.

The thing about it is, Malkin is too high profile to be able to have fun with Clinton and Rachael Raye's association like I did, she's probably afraid she would get too much criticism, so she jumps on the first opportunity she could take.

She would probably have loved to throw off on the similarity of Ray to Monica Lewinsky. I even e-mailed her about it, hoping I would get a plug out of her, but I guess she's too squeamish to risk a public dressing down over an unprovable slur, even if she did approach it as a joke.

Plus she probably took one look at the woman at the top of my blog and said to hell with this guy.

Probably for the best. I don't get the feeling that she's playing with a full deck anyway.
