Dunkin' Donuts ad pulled for scarf's 'terror link'

Who else to point it out but Fox News? 

According to the Fox News commentator Michelle Malkin, the scarves are "popularized by Yasser Arafat and a regular adornment of Muslim terrorists appearing in beheading and hostage-taking videos."

Here's a link to the full article:

1.) Dear Michelle: When you report something stupid, you look stupid. It's quite simple (At the same time, I recently blogged a hot sauce, but I am no news commentator). 

2.) Dunkin' Donuts pulling that ad only means to me that they assume Americans are that dumb to be offended enough that it will hurt their sales.  

3.) Are Americans that dumb that they will be offended?

4.)It just shows and reminds me of the all too common "making things of things that don't need making of" that runs rampant these days.
