AP: Dunkin’ Donuts has pulled an online advertisement featuring Rachael Ray after complaints that a fringed black-and-white scarf that the celebrity chef wore in the ad offers symbolic support for Muslim extremism and terrorism.

The coffee and baked goods chain said the ad that began appearing online May 7 was pulled over the past weekend because “the possibility of misperception detracted from its original intention to promote our iced coffee.”

In the spot, Ray holds an iced coffee while standing in front of trees with pink blossoms.

Critics, including conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, complained that the scarf wrapped around her looked like a kaffiyeh, the traditional Arab headdress. Critics who fueled online complaints about the ad in blogs say such scarves have come to symbolize Muslim extremism and terrorism.

The kaffiyeh, Malkin wrote in a column posted online last Friday, “has come to symbolize murderous Palestinian jihad. Popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos, the apparel has been mainstreamed by both ignorant (and not-so-ignorant) fashion designers, celebrities, and left-wing icons.”

Gawker: An email tipster discovered John McCain‘s family blog has been infiltrated at the deepest level by enemies of America. Meghan McCain, daughter of the Republican presidential candidate, is really into the keffiyeh, scarf of Middle Eastern Precious Freedoms Haters, and even wears it on the so-called Straight Talk Express, and also in the presence of her apparent sympathizer mom Cindy McCain! Republicans of course will murder McCain for this horrifying development, because they are fashion whores who know the keffiyeh is so over.

The beans are spilled!

Rasmussen:

There are no surprises in the first Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of the Presidential race in Alabama. John McCain leads Barack Obama by twenty-eight percentage points, 60% to 32%. George W. Bush won the state by twenty-five points in Election 2004 and by fourteen points four years earlier. The state’s Senate Race is also looking good for the GOP.

Nationally, McCain and Obama remain quite competitive in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

McCain attracts 91% of Republicans, 13% of Democrats, and enjoys a twenty-three percentage point advantage among the state’s unaffiliated voters.

McCain is viewed favorably by 62% of voters statewide while Obama earns positive reviews from just 36%.

Fifty-one percent (51%) of Alabama voters say it is more important for the United States to win the War in Iraq than to get the troops home. Forty-three percent (43%) hold the opposite view and say it is more important to bring the troops home. The results in Alabama are a mirror image of the national average. Alabama is the only state surveyed so far to place a higher priority on winning the War.

If John McCain is elected in November, 63% say U.S. victory in Iraq is likely. Just 23% victory is likely if Obama wins the White House. Fifty-two percent (52%) say that a President Obama would get the troops home during his first term in office. Forty-nine percent (49%) say McCain would do the same.

Forty-five percent (45%) of Alabama voters say that President Bush is doing a good or excellent job. Thirty-five percent (35%) say he is doing a poor job. Nationally, the President’s Job Approval Ratings are near the lowest levels ever recorded.

The survey was conducted in partnership with Fox Television Stations, Inc.

New York Daily News: Rep. Anthony Weiner, a likely 2009 mayoral candidate, is pouring his heart into Hillary Clinton‘s White House bid – literally.

Weiner, whose district includes parts of Queens and Brooklyn, finally ‘fessed that he is romancing Clinton’s glamorous “body woman,” Huma Abedin.

Asked by The Associated Press about all the time he’s spending on the road campaigning for Clinton, the 43-year-old bachelor said, “It’s largely because I’m dating Huma.”

Fox News: John Bolton managed to escape a British journalist’s attempt to place him under citizen’s arrest Wednesday evening at a festival in Wales.

The Telegraph newspaper reported that Guardian columnist George Monbiot, a critic of the Iraq war, tried to arrest the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations as he was exiting the stage at the Hay Literary Festival. The Telegraph earlier reported that Monbiot would try to arrest Bolton for war crimes.

According to the article, Monbiot was blocked by two security guards, and Bolton was ushered away even as Monbiot attempted to dart after him once he was released. Monbiot reportedly said he was “disappointed” he was unable to make the arrest.
