Also, let John Mellencamp know here that he is just a cheap slug.

Done! It's too bad because I have drank two shakes every mornin' for so many years I can't remember when I started.

I was thinking of trying SlimFast, not because of a weight problem, but more for a lack of appetite. Oh well, they have store brands that are probably the same thing at a more reasonable price.

I think Carnation Instant Breakfast is really good and tasty...loaded with nutrients too. They have a variety of flavor packets (powder). There's always Ensure too, but it's pricey and taste like medicine.

Carnation Instant Breakfast is the most inexpensive way to go. Put a glass of milk, the mix, maybe a banana (or other fruit) in the blender, and you're good to go. My mother's doctor gave me this advice when my mother lost her appetite while terminal with cancer.

Here's mine:

I'm sure that you have heard about the tasteless remarks that Ms. Goldberg made at a political fundraiser recently. What Ms. Goldberg does during her comedy routine is one thing, when she does it at a political function, and aims filthy remarks towards the President, then that is something else completely.

You might want to consider hiring a spokesperson with more class.

Sincerely,

I think she falls into the Hollywood Squares category like the rest of the "has beens". Notice most of the Bush Haters celebs are old timers still living in the 60's?

I think using SlimFast was scraping the bottom of the barrel for an advertiser as well. You actually know anyone that uses that stuff?

I, too, sent them a little note. I think Monday will find slim-fast a little aghast.

I told them to get her face off their website.

Thanks for the heads up.

Losing money is the only thing big business understands. I have discovered that SlimFast's parent company is Unilever.It may be even better to write them directly. Unilever We can take on an agressive campaign to boycott ALL their products.

Edwards said it was "a great honor" to be there and insisted, "This campaign will be a celebration of real American values [sic!]."

Kerry thanked all the performers for "an extraordinary evening," hailed the "great producers" - Harvey Weinstein of Miramax and Jann Wenner - and said "every performer tonight ... conveyed to you the heart and soul of our country [sic!!!]."

Hollyweird does NOT represent American values, or the heart and soul of our country, in any way whatsoever!!

This election is shaping up to be a contest between anyone with decent or Christian values (whatever his or her usual political leanings) and the moral FILTH and POISON represented by Hollyweird and the media and advertising community, the feminazis, and the gays. I vote NO to all of them!!!!

As for SlimFast, it doesn't work anyway, in terms of long-term weight loss and health. Don't beleive their hype, whether spread by Whoopi the Obscene or by anyone else. Boycott SlimFast for ALL the right reasons!!!!

By the way, I see from your screen name that you are a Christian, as I am. May God bless you!!!!

Thanks for the link. Here's what I emailed them:

I am writing to let you know that I will do everything in my power to dissuade people I know from using your products until such time as Whoopi Goldberg is removed as spokesperson. Her vulgar and tasteless diatribe directed against the President of the United States was not only inappropriate, but also reflects negatively against your company. I want you to know that should you choose to support Ms. Goldberg and her foul-mouthed remarks, it will adversely affect your image in the minds of as many people as is within my power to do. Please do the right thing and replace her with someone that more Americans can respect.

Forget Slimfast- it's just a subsidiary. Notify the parent corporation Unilever. They own Lux, Birdseye, Pond's, Dove and a bunch of other products. Let them know you're not just boycotting Slimfast, but all their products! Click here to contact Unilever

Oh Ensure is just awful. There were some leftover cans after my dad passed away. I drank half of one and tossed the rest. I remember Carnation Instant Breakfast. It was pretty tasty. Thanks for the tip.

Thank you. I also just posted this link. They are a huge corporation and if they here from enough of us, Whoopi will be more than "a big loser" as the SlimFast motto goes.

I sent my e-mail to Slimfast earlier today. I am now trying to find an earlier thread that also listed an address for Unilever, the parent company of SlimFast. I can't find that thread anymore. I ran several searches. Can somebody post the link? Thanks

Yes, I am a Christian and am disturbed at how John Kerry, a practicing (?) Catholic, could sit through Whoopi's diatribe laughing. This is Christianlike? God bless you too, my friend.

I just emailed Unilever, thanks for the link. I wasn't sure how to direct my email (they had about 7 options to choose from: product, media, web-site feedback, etc.), so I emailed to all of them. Choke on that for a while Unilever

Here's what I wrote:

I use your products several times a year when I want to take off some quick weight. However, I cannot support your company as long as you have this woman as your spokesperson. While you pay her, she represents you. She did not do you well the other night. If you feel strongly about her, go ahead and keep her on. Your business will go down. I guarantee it. I'll find another product to use as will everybody I speak to. This just wasn't Whoopi giving her opinion as a US citizen, this was a crude, drunken tirade. It's your choice, it's who you want to be as a Company. I wish you good luck with your decision.
