Absolut-ly insulting

Michelle Malkin has more updates on the Absolut ad campaign that shows the Mexican border to include the entire southwest United States with the caption, "In an Absolut World". She also has an alternative ad, suggested by one of her readers.

Meanwhile, Jonah Goldberg was cc'ed on an e-mail from Charles Hales of http://www.coolcocktail.com to Absolut Vodka.

I own and run the website http://www.coolcocktail.com. Over 5% of my cocktail recipes contain the term Absolute in the ingredient list. Please excuse me for not writing more, but I need to remove the Absolute from those recipes and replace it with Stoli.

Thank you for your time,

Charles Hale
Update! In colorful language, Simon sums up well why I haven't used the word "boycott."
