"Fire David Letterman" Protest Becomes Hatefest, Draws More Media Than Protesters


Are they getting paid to do this?


I'm flummoxed.

"Other conservative talking points thrown around at the rally included, "Close the borders!" and "I only watch Fox News," as well as the general sentiment that Jay Leno is a better host than Letterman."

Same as the hate Imus types. If Imus was fired, so should Dave.

'"How dare he?" asked yet a third, the most offensive of all. "When he has a bastard son, and a **** for a wife" (Letterman's wife Lasko has kept a notoriously low profile).'

They probably had the day off and needed someone/something to hate.....for the day. Some people are just like that....keeps "THE EVIL FRESH".

I was in the area yesterday and popped by, it was pretty hilarious. The number of media far outnumbered the number of protesters, with pedestrians taking their BOYCOTT fliers, then saying they were going to buy tons of those products. They were practically frothing at the mouth. Truly was a sight to see, haha.

They are currently known as "Palin supporters" these days. Same evil, more attractive package. (On the oustide anyway.)

The funny thing is, from what I saw, most of them were not even protesting David Letterman, they were almost campaigning for Palin, and bashing Obama. It was craziness... they just wanted an excuse.
