Ku Klux Klan comes to the rescue of Martha Burk. From AP via The Golf Channel:
AUGUSTA, Ga. -- A Ku Klux Klan group has asked for a permit to demonstrate in support of Augusta National Golf Club's right to an all-male membership, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Friday.

"We intend on making speeches and picketing for the right of the Augusta National Club to include only members of their choice regardless of race, religion, sex or creed," said J.J. Harper, identified by the newspaper as the imperial wizard of the American White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Augusta National spokesman Glenn Greenspan distanced the club from the group that made the permit request Thursday.

"As a result of the controversy created by political activists, a number of organizations, some of them extreme, have sought to voice their political views," Greenspan said. "Anyone who knows anything about Augusta National Golf Club or its members knows this is not something the club would welcome or encourage."...

I wonder how Martha Burk would respond to this?
"(Augusta National) should not be shocked by the KKK's endorsement," Burk told the newspaper. "They have behaved in a manner that attracts this type of support. They are going to have a real circus if this goes on."

Just kidding, I knew. Consistency is not the hobgoblin of Burks' mind, by the way. Just yesterday, as I blogged, she was talking about the downside of too many protests, like one planned by Jesse Jackson:
``I don't want a cast of thousands down there,'' Burk said at a news conference at Bowling Green University's student's union Wednesday. ``I think it will get chaotic and we won't get our message across.
