Posted on 06/16/2009 3:01:14 PM PDT by God luvs America
An apology from David Letterman was good enough for Sarah Palin - but not for protesters who demanded the late night host's dismissal Tuesday at a Broadway demonstration.
"Fire Dave! Fire Dave!" the crowd of about 50 protesters chanted as Letterman fans filtered into the Ed Sullivan Theater for the show's taping.
"I hope to have him see the light," said demonstrator Josephine Sarnok, 59, of Newark. "I think it was over the line."
BettyJean Kling, 61, accused Letterman of using the Alaska governor's family to boost his ratings. She stood by a large plywood sign with the words "Fire the pervert" spray-painted across the front.

Any pictures yet?
wow - 50 people - that’ll work alright.
I blocked both CBS stations (regular and high-def) from my cable boxes and wrote a letter to CBS telling them that their channels will stay blocked as long as Letterman works for them.
I’d encourage others to do the same.
Remember, the MSM reported that fifty people attended the Tea Parties.
Whoa! Keep up the PRESSURE!!!
He apologized under heat, and Sarah graciously accepted.
CBS can ignore us, but can't ignore ad revenue losses.
Dave at least maned-up and apologized. Dave is pretty irrelevant at this point. I hate people getting fired for PC reasons, even when they are on the other side. It is our side who will take the most hits.
Has a nice ring, doesn’t it?
Agreed. It’s over, don’t try to turn Dave into a sacrifice to the PC gods. Not that I think that likely.
That’ll work ... I don’t watch network news, international, national or local. I get what I want on the internet ....there’s several good websites out there (drudge,newsbusters,patriotroom, etc).
Good for her, she's been defending herself , ALONE, for way too long.....it is about time WE stood up and declared NO LONGER good enough for us. The perv needs to be fired. Anything less is UNACCEPTABLE!
he manned up because he’s already lost one major advertiser (Embassy Suites) and is probably in jepordy of losing others...
