In the mood for donuts? Choose carefully.

Now, I have a soft spot in my heart for Krispy Kreme. But I think even if that were not the case, I might still find this a teeny tiny bit absurd.

It seems that Krispy Kreme, as is its wont on certain occasions, will be giving away free donuts on Inauguration Day. See, here's their press release:

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is honoring American's sense of pride and freedom of choice on Inauguration Day, by offering a free doughnut of choice to every customer on this historic day, Jan. 20. By doing so, participating Krispy Kreme stores nationwide are making an oath to tasty goodies -- just another reminder of how oh-so-sweet "free" can be.

How subversive is that?

What?

You don't see it?

They're celebrating freedom of choice. By giving away a free doughnut of choice.

So, naturally, the American Life League responded (in part) like so:

The next time you stare down a conveyor belt of slow-moving, hot, sugary glazed donuts at your local Krispy Kreme, you just might be supporting President-elect Barack Obama's radical support for abortion on demand - including his sweeping promise to sign the Freedom of Choice Act as soon as he steps in the Oval Office, Jan. 20.

I mean, in my opinion it would be good if they really did mean that. Well, a rational version of that. But from what I've heard about Krispy Kreme and its corporate philosophy...not so much.

(Total kudos to Bob for the title. Nicely done.)

They also gave out free red white & blue donuts on Election Day if you had your voting sticker.

Guess that means they were anti-choice back then, huh?
