Get her name...call HER boss.
“We have far, far more class than a Letterman.”
Well, some of us do...but, like Ann Coulter, I believe in fighting fire with fire and that joking around about Dave’s wife having a face like a horse and that his joke about unwed sex can, as in his case, produce a child like his bastard son are all in good fun, like his “humorous” antics are to him...it’s all JUST A JOKE, DAVE!
Don’t forget to tell them why you chose them!
No. I figured she was expressing a personal opinion and she's entitled to that.
If MET company policy differs from hers she will hear about it from up the chain. I did not want to get into an argument and be hung up on.
I was polite and firm however.
Prayers for you and your son,
What a beautiful smile.
Now that we know who the advertisers are, does anyone have a list of alternate products i.e. Kraft mayo instead of Hellman’s? Writing to the advertisers isn’t enough, they have to feel the sting of the boycott.
Good on Embassey Suites.
Hmmm... I always try to stay at a Hilton hotel. I can now continue to do so with a clean conscience. :-)
I hope Dave isn’t hit too hard by the layoff...the hay bills and the salaries for the muckers in the stall for his wife must be enormous...JUST A JOKE DAVE...HAVE I TOLD LOUSY JOKES BEFORE...YES...AM I SORRY I TOLD THIS ONE...MAYBE...BUT I’VE TOLD A THOUSAND LOUSY JOKES BEFORE...
Met Life, they're one of those thieving whole-life scams.
(just giving back to the Left what they dish out to the Palin family).
I would have asked her if she had been getting many calls in support of David Letterman.
“.. HE put his wife and kid out there after all, so they’re fair game..”
He keeps TELLING STORIES and showing pictures of the little bastard on his show...and talking about how lousy his marriage was, etc...IT’S ALL IN FUN, DAVE...
That is my plan to let them know.
FU, Pervert David Letterman!!!!!!
Looks like I will be calling my insurance agent of many years to have him make sure I have no Met Life products and to make a note in my file that there are never to be any.
That must be why the POS Letterman made another apology today, one a lot closer to being a real apology than his last one. In spite of what other leftards are saying, this is having an effect on the jerk and CBS.
kids, this is a big deal....Letterman may have really screwed up this time....
I called the Late Show this evening and congratulated them on losing an advertiser. “We’ve only just begun.”
Sorry, I can't agree...but then, I haven't met the woman, which I guess is my point. You may be right, I just have no evidence due to my lack of both interest and, by choice, TV.
Yep! Big ditto!
I may just go and book me a night at the Embassy Suites. Yep, that’s what I’m gona do.
Thanks. I already got that. I’m waiting to hear that they’ve cancelled their support for Letterman.
Where did you see an apology?
Haters launch? I think PMSNBC has that backasswards.
Poor thing, to be married to that hideous old pervert geezer.
She may have been pretty at one time—before she met David Letterman.
More like a Right hook....
It’s just as fake and insincere, not to mention twisted and circuitous, as the first apology.
This is just a lame attempt to pre-empt the demonstration which will take place in front of the CBS Studio tomorrow from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.—and all the subsequent publicity it will engender.
Austin Powers says it best:

Fire David Letterman Movement Announces Fire David Letterman Rally Tuesday, 4:30 pm at Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City
Challenges New York City Chapter of NOW to Join Rally and Calls for CBS to Fire David Letterman
NEW YORK, Jun 15, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) — A diverse coalition of concerned citizens, whose website is www.FireDavidLetterman.com, today announced a Fire David Letterman Rally on Tuesday, June 16, from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm on the sidewalks outside the Ed Sullivan Theater, located at 1697 Broadway in New York City. CBS films the Late Show with David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Tuesday’s show, hosted by Letterman, will be taped at 5:30 pm, and will feature guest Michelle Pfeiffer.
Anna Barone, who worked for Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign, and later for Democrats for McCain, called on CBS CEO Les Moonves to fire David Letterman for his sexist insults of both Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and Palin’s 14 year old daughter.
“David Letterman’s disgraceful comments were a violation of standards of common decency. They were as bad as the comments Don Imus made that caused CBS to fire him in 2007. CBS needs to apply the same standards to David Letterman they applied to Don Imus,” said Barone.
Letterman is old and gray,
He never has a funny day.
His homely wife looks like a poodle,
That’s why I say to Dave, FUDL!
IT’S JUST A JOKE DAVE! NOW CUT THAT OUT!
me too...i sorta liked them anyhow
Embassy Suites is now owned by Hilton
How sweet it is, I hope a bunch of his sponsors back out.
Ya gotta love the free market! Either Letterman’s joke was OK or it wasn’t. The bottom line is a great way for the public to vote on the matter. It doesn’t lie and you can’t stuff this ballot box.
...and dead people from Chicago don’t stay at hotels!
She’s an average looking woman, with bad taste in men. Don’t stoop to their level.
Attend Tuesday's FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY

From NewsBusters.org, June 9, 2009...
Seven months after Election Day, and the attacks on Sarah Palin keep coming.
On Monday, CBS's David Letterman on the "Late Show" shamelessly went after the Alaska governor and her family during his opening monologue, as well as in his "Top Ten" list.
Top Ten Highlights Of Sarah Palin's Trip To New York
10. Visited New York landmarks she normally only sees from Alaska
9. Laughed at all the crazy-looking foreigners entering the U.N.
8. Made moose jerky on Rachael Ray
7. Keyed Tina Fey's car
6. After a wink and a nod, ended up with a kilo of crack
5. Made coat out of New York City rat pelts
4. Sat in for Kelly Ripa. Regis couldn't tell the difference.
3. Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson's always talking about
2. Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her "slutty flight attendant" look
1. Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman
"One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game, during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked-up by Alex Rodriguez."
Better than a pedophile, I guess.
The list should include sponsors of the competition also, make it hard for new business sales.
Geez, I’m watching Greta right now and Joy Behar agrees with Palin.
Greta is also talking to 2 women from firedavidletterman.com.
Hey! That’s offensive to us mongrels.
Excellent, I am a HHonors guest.
It only took a week, millions of outraged viewers and some potentially lost $$$$ before he did the right thing. Nice.
Perhaps liberal idiots will think twice before using the Palins as their personal punching bag.
Great news! Let’s keep the pressure.
