Rachael Ray's controversial... scarf?Now, I'm the first one to applaud any instance of snatching Rachael Ray's dead-clown face off the screen, but really... This is like siccing Ferdinand Marcos on that fat old John Bircher down the block.
We never thought scarves could be "controversial," but then again, we've never had our neckwear critiqued by millions of people. Rachael Ray wore a fringed scarf for a recent Dunkin Donuts ad, and a blogger pointed out that scarf was similar to "the type typically worn by Muslim extremists." Others voiced their opinions and pretty soon, Dunkin Donuts pulled the ad. The New York Times recaps this textbook example of the Web's massive influence.
Also, bonus to Malkin for getting the New York Times to notice her for raising the profile of blogs even as her idiocy continues to deeply undermine their usefulness.
