“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!

Did you ask to speak to her supervisor or get her name?

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.

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.

hey.. HE put his wife and kid out there after all, so they're fair game.. If he doesn't want ugly wife jokes he should keep her out of the spotlight.

(just giving back to the Left what they dish out to the Palin family).

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.

"Letterman's wife, no statement needed"

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.

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.

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.

He never has a funny day.

IT’S JUST A JOKE DAVE! NOW CUT THAT 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!

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."
