Animal Activists Protest Japan at Graceland

Animal and environmental activists sometimes act stupid by protesting at inappropriate times and places. Activists from the International Fund for Animal Welfare dressed as Elvis impersonators held up signs saying "Don't Be Cruel" during the tour of Graceland by President Bush and Japan Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi. They hurt the whale protection cause with such untimely protests. Most people oppose cruelty to animals, but protesting at the homes of innocent icons crosses the line. Plus there is no way you can compete with the picture of the prime minister and president with Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley. Of course, many of these activists think acting stupid in public is an effective promotional strategy. Good thing The King wasn't around to deal with the protestors.
