Too Crazy For Erick Erickson

The lunatic fringe went nuts over the multi-cultural Coke ad during the Super Blowout. It puzzled the hell outta me and usually reliable wingnut Erick Erickson of Red State didn’t get it either:

Coke is well known for its slightly mawkish Kumbaya-style ads so nobody should have been shocked by this commercial. I thought it was mildly pleasant and forgot about it until the hissy fit spread across the interwebs.

I don’t recall Conservatives getting all riled up about the I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing ad campaign. Don’t they have anything better to do? That was, of course, a rhetorical question that we all know the answer to. The outrage factory never rests.

It’s too early for a Coke Zero so I’ll pour myself another cuppa coffee. It’s a pity that Joe Scarborough has ruined the phrase cuppa joe but he has and I’m not too Mika to admit it…

    The outrage factory is all up in arms by being reminded that people speak different languages, but they’re just fine with Bob Dylan hawking gas-guzzling cars while bad-mouthing Keystone Light.
    Me? I’m thinking of the children.
