From Fox News:

The controversy surrounding Rainbow Doritos, the special-edition snack released to build support for gay and lesbian youth-isn't letting up anytime soon.

There's just something about teh gay that drives fundamentalists into crazed conniption fits. I'm reminded of the freakouts over Barney the dinosaur and Tinky Winky. The gays! The gays! They're EVERYWHERE. And they're recruiting our children with corn chips and lovable television characters.

Oy vey.
