UPDATE: HillBuzz is actually organizing an actual Tea Party Rally while Letterman tapes his show — details can be found by clicking HERE:
There will be a rally/protest against Letterman on Tuesday, June 16th (Moved from Monday, June 15th because of permitting issues) in New York City outside the Ed Sullivan theater, just as Letterman starts taping his Monday episode at 430pm EST.
UPDATE 2: Date moved to June 16th due to permitting issues.
Dear Readers: I wanted to direct everyone to HillBuzz, who is doing an awesome job agitating on behalf of Gov. Sarah Palin. Most of my readers know, Sarah’s daughter Willow was the target of David Letterman’s inanity. Letterman’s orkish insults went beyond the bounds of civil decency, and it is up to all Americans who desire a return to reasoned discourse and good taste to take action.
You can start HERE, which is a solid summary post on their BOYCOTT LETTERMAN campaign.
Here is my contribution, sent to CBS (feel free to copy/paste, amend and send):
I am a Democrat. I am a businesswoman. I am a fan of “CSI”, “Two-and-a-half Men” and “Big Bang Theory.”
While people may disagree politically with eachother, I must strenuously protest when a supposed comedian attacks a young family member of a political candidate — and preparing a joke that includes a reference to statutory rape of a young girl who is targeted because of her mother’s career.
I stopped watching all of CBS News shows after “RatherGate”. I think it high time your people take a good, hard look at your staff and consider that insulting a larger core of the American audience is not going to create a successful business model.
I am applying the “Imus” standard to you right now. If you need a refresher, please click here:
I will no longer watch any CBS show until Letterman is fired. Period. No negotiation.
You will find many women, and many Democrats, will not tolerate such disgraceful behavior. Enduring trite, condescending, and ill-informed remarks by the New York and Hollywood glitterati about Sarah Palin is annoying enough. Those about her young family, which seemingly target Gov. Palin because she is an effective American patriot, go beyond the bounds of decency — to the point I feel it is my civic duty to take action.
The day Letterman is gone is the day I will start watching again. Letterman stopped being funny years ago; surely, your team can come up with fresh new talent.
I called Kellogs, Mars, and Olive Garden — stating that I would boycott them until Letterman was gone and buy twice as much from them than normal if he were gone in 30 days or less.
I sent a note to the three shows I normally watch, and advise everyone to do the same. You can use this form:
