Good reasons to love Starbucks

Here's a reason to love Starbucks. Michelle Malkin, the kooky right-wing blogger, hates it.

Malkin writes that she's given up her regular Starbucks habit in large part to support Dunkin' Donuts, which is an aggressive supporter of immigration law. Yes, really. Read Malkin's other reasons for quitting Starbucks here.

Here's another good reason to love the coffee chain: Malkin also links to a report that a Christian right-wing group in San Diego is boycotting Starbucks because of its new logo:

A Christian group based in San Diego found grounds for outrage over the new retro-style logo for Starbucks Coffee.

The Resistance says the new image "has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute," Mark Dice, founder of the group, said in a news release. "Need I say more? It's extremely poor taste, and the company might as well call themselves Slutbucks."

The group, which claims more than 3,000 members nationwide and has found a place on the fringe advancing various conspiracy theories, is calling for a national boycott of the coffee-selling giant.

Oy. The slutty logo is a mermaid! Fight stupidity! Drink frappuccinos!
