Donut (Ass)Holes


When I hear the words "Rachael Ray," "scarf" and "donuts" in the same sentence, really only one thing comes to mind -- and suicide bombing jihadist certainly isn't it.

As much as I'd like nothing more than to see Rachael actually explode (and she seems to be well on her way to doing just that), behold the most fucking ridiculous, asinine, balls-out stupid thing I've seen the laughable dingbats on the far right pull since the whole "Freedom Fries" nonsense a few years back.

This is so goddamned absurd that I honestly can't come up with a way to improve upon it. I challenge you to read this and not make the incredulous/shocked/pissed-off face that Daffy Duck made a bunch of times while debating whether it was rabbit season or duck season with Bugs Bunny.

The left side of my brain just collapsed in on itself.

Ipod, play. Enya. Very calm.

Sometimes I wish that I could be in charge just to have the balls to ignore the right-wing nuts that complain about everything.

Blade said...

I can feel the sarcasm dripping off Malkin's posts, already. And everyone just followed her right along. Crazy.

That's a "I wonder if we can fuck with these guys" type of thing that succeeded.

tony said...

What. The. Fuck.

Seriously.

Wait a minute...are you telling me my boston cremes are funding Al Qaeda???

I'm only eating Krispy Kremes now.

Mr. Controversy said...

True, this is stupid, but on the bright side, this could lead to boycotts against this donut eating tart. She'll be off our televisions, out of our magazines, panhandling and blowing anything that moves for money...RACHEL RAY TOUCHED ME IN AN INAPPROPRIATE PLACE! Sorry...I know that was completely random and uncalled for, but I'm just that desperate to get her the fuck out of popular culture.

When I was 16 and about to go overseas for a stint as an exchange student, I attended an "orientation" hosted by the exchange program. Here the American students going abroad were able to mingle with the international students who had been in the states for 6+ months and hear all about their experiences adapting to another culture.

There was a teenage girl from Norway who told us her story about all the Americans (fellow teens as well as many adults) who kept asking about the cultural and religious significance of the scarves that she wore daily. It ranged from simple curiosity to full-blown harrassment, and the questions were neverending. She was very confused and kept responding "I...just...like... scarves..." because that was it. She wore them for style and she liked them, but the Americans in her host school and town could not accept that. This poor girl went home with the images of psycho anti-scarf Americans dancing in her head.

That was the first of many times that year I would be embarrassed of my nationality.

To quote Moe from The Simpsons; "I'm choking on my own rage here."

Girl With Curious Hair said...

It's true then; stupidity is infinite.

And in case you didn't know, Malkin is the same 'patriot' that defended/advocated interment.

Jubilant Echo was here said...

A friend used to say: "Do you know what is gayer then. . .?" followed by whatever we would be talking about at the time.

I would reply "No, what?"

And he would answer almost in a hysterically yelling voice: "Nothing, nothing is gayer!"

Well, do you all know what is stupider then this whole scarf fiasco?

VOTAR said...

Yeah but that scarf, it's awful! And it doesn't go with that bag at all...


This is a tough one for me, because I'm ashamed to say I think Michelle Malkin is strangely hot. I want to hate her for being a fascist, but I want to fuck her in the ass on a dirty mattress in a corrugated tin shack because she looks like a cute little Vietnamese hooker.

Hmm, wait, maybe those aren't too far from being the same thing.

Joey B said...

There's only one thing wrong with that scarf... it's not quite tight enough. Rachael can still breathe.

Ms. Mix & Bitch said...

Wow, did you read my post today? I promise, I didn't rip you off...

And in a surprising twist of fate, I actually liked Votar's comment today.

Citronella said...

I think I need to go buy a keffiyeh to wear as a scarf.

Now.

On the other hand, I'm planning to take a plane soon.

Both might not be compatible.

Deacon Blue said...

Well, I read about this at The Field Negro blog first, but if I hadn't, you would have been the person to inspire one-half of my own blog-related ranting tonight.

And I don't know exactly what image "Rachel Ray, scarf and donuts" conjures in your mind, but the one it conjures in mine also involves extra virgin olive oil and a cheap hotel room. I'm sorry, but I think she's cute.

That said, I also sympathize with Votar's libido, having just seen a photo of Michelle Malkin after summoning her on Wikipedia to find out who the hell she is (I try to avoid most right- and left-wing pundits when I can).

Paul said...

"That was the first of many times that year I would be embarrassed of my nationality."

Jayne sounds a lot like Michelle Obama.

Anyway, I think Rachael Ray is a terrorist and I don't care what anyone says, she should be waterboarded.

Chez said...

Citronella, exactly what do you mean by take a plane?

Mr. Controversy said...

I should have done this sooner...Rabbit season.

Vermillion said...

Wow, you know bullies are desperate when they start talking about your clothes.

"Oh, yeah? Well...your scarf makes you look like a terrorist! And your feet smell bad, too!"

Sadly, I must join Votar and deacon blue, for both women, while quite annoying are physically appealing and if said women were to settle this in a pool of Jell-O, I shant look away.

RottweilerTOM said...

FREEDOM FRIES.....LOL (was that a Bushism, by the way?)

(I almost forgot about that)

Michael said...

So, if it were a keffiyeh, and Rachel Ray were making a political statement, and the scarf were not freaking paisley with tassles hanging from it...then isn't it great we live in a country where that kind of thing is protected speech?

*crickets*

Anybody?
