Buy A New Eclipse Or The Terrorists Win

You can’t accuse car dealers, or their advertising, of being subtle. From The Columbus Dispatch:

Some Columbus radio stations have rejected as insensitive an advertisement for a car dealership that invokes Islamic references.
In the spot, Keith Dennis of Dennis Mitsubishi talks about “launching a jihad on the automotive market.”
Sales representatives “will be wearing burqas all weekend long,” the ad says. One of the vehicles on sale “can comfortably seat up to 12 jihadists in the back.”
“Our prices are lower than the evildoers’ every day. Just ask the pope! ” the ad says. “Friday is fatwa Friday, with free rubber swords for the kiddies.”
