Even the Kitchen’s Not a Safe Zone

Jay posted a while back (here and here) about lefty politics creeping into inappropriate areas. Well, reader Jon informs me that Penzeys Spices has decided to politicize condiments with a new spice blend, Arizona Dreaming, to protest SB 1070:

Penzey wrote a letter to go with the launch, saying: “In our need to restore our sense of self-control, are we actually going to reward our politicians who are not working to bring us together, but instead forsaking America’s beautiful 234-year-old history of diversity? . . . The Arizona I know has plenty of happy feelings to spread.”

As Laura Ingraham might say, shut up and shake (you know, like a salt shaker).
