PETA Concerned They Don't Look Stupid Enough, Protests Kentucky Honoring Col. Sanders

I'm sorry, but this is just plain dumb. And I don't say this in defense of KFC, but this is a good example of PETA pissing off everyone, and making animal activists look like kooks.

"If the state legislature moves forward with this one, then they should change Kentucky's state bird from the cardinal to the debeaked, crippled, scalded, diseased, dead chicken," said PETA vice president Bruce Friedrich.

PETA has been involved in a longstanding battle with KFC, and even began a push two years ago to have a bust of Colonel Sanders removed from the Capitol. Sanders became recognizable worldwide after he began marketing his fried chicken.

Again, I'm not saying there aren't serious issues with the way chickens at KFC are treated. But, you have to ask yourself, how is their action going to be perceived by the average Joe. Is this going to accomplish anything? Is anyone going to listen to them?

PETA has done great investigative stories, especially on factory farming. But, when they do this kind of publicity hounding, I think people just tune them out, and don't take what may be major issues seriously.
