Don't really know about you - but all I see are two white guys dressed up in KKK uniforms and while you can say that it gets them some press - in the end - all I'm going to remember is how idiotic this was versus what they were protesting about (I've actually already forgotten).

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals knows how to grab attention. And show off its laundry.

The animal rights group, which every year stages a protest at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, had two of its members dress in Ku Klux Klan garb outside Madison Square Garden on Monday.

Their goal, according to a post on the PETA website, was to draw a parallel between the KKK and the American Kennel Club. "Obviously it's an uncomfortable comparison," PETA spokesman Michael McGraw told the Associated Press.
