Colonel Sanders vs. Tawana Brawley

Maybe John Kerry will join Big Al...

The Rev. Al Sharpton has joined PETA in calling for a boycott of fast-food chain KFC, in a new TV and radio campaign.

Sharpton is urging the black community to join the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' boycott of the franchise, the animal protection group announced Thursday.

"If KFC wants to take our money and use it to pay for sloppy practices that hurt animals, I say we send them a message that this is not going to happen," Sharpton says in the ad.
General rule -- if something ticks off PETA and Al Sharpton, it's a generally a good thing. I'm not eating fast food right now, but I might have to make an exception for KFC.
