You may have seen the petition to fire David Letterman circulating on the internet via emails and blog sites. Michael Leahy, the creator of FireLetterman.com has organized a protest rally to be held on Monday. Let’s strike back against the distasteful and hateful sexists attacks of Governor Palin and her young daughters by liberal talk show host David Letterman.  Let’s send Letterman, CBS and its sponsors a message loud and clear. ENOUGH!!!

From Michael Leahy:

I am pleased to report that we have received enough volunteer 
leader commitments from the now 2,253 people on this mailing list 
to make a FIRM DECISION to go forward with a planned 
FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY, currently scheduled to be held 
from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm this Monday June 15 outside the 
Ed Sullivan Theater, located at 1697 Broadway in New York City. 

If you live anywhere within a 4 hour driving distance of 
New York City, please plan on attending this event. Bring your 
own signs (be creative but PG rated!). We will be announcing 
more details over the weekend so stay tuned. 

We need more volunteers to help our "Project Servant-Leaders", so 
please email me at [email protected] if you can 
provide some time. 

Laureen Cummings has agreed to serve as our "Project Servant- 
Leader" responsible for our Media Relations. 

Marie Wilkinson and others have agreed to share "Project 
Servant-Leader" responsibilities in the Social Media arena. 

We have volunteers for our logistics and volunteer coordination 
areas as well, and will be announcing the names of that 
leadership group over the weekend. 

Keep telling your friends on the internet and in person to 
sign the letter to CBS asking them to fire David Letterman 
at our website, http://www.firedavidletterman.com . 

Two additional pieces of news to show that we and others are 
already making some progress: 

1. CBS has received so many negative comments about Letterman 
they have shut down the comments section of their website. 

2. A leading New York State Legislator, Brian Kolb, publicly 
called today for CBS to fire Letterman. 

Thanks for all your help. 

Stay tuned for news over the weekend about how you can help 
make this coming Monday's "FIRE DAVID LETTERMAN RALLY" 
a success ! 

Best Regards, 

Michael Patrick Leahy
