Also, Rick, this is addressed to your readers:
Judging from the almost total lack of referral links from this blog in my sitemeter, virtually none of you came over to "A Conservative Lesbian" to check out what I had to say. Huh? And yet, the word "lesbian" is baked right into my blog name! WTH, dudes, WTH?

#35: Ridicule on its face is a type of bullying. I'm shocked I have to explain to anyone that what Letterman did is bullying. ALL of it was bullying, except for the hostage taking explained below.
Michelle Malkin's piece on Letterman (search her site, linked on mine) included Letterman's long rant developing the "slutty flight attendant" theme -- THAT was bullying. And you know, I just realized, another thing that makes what Letterman did bullying is that Gov. Palin -- and all of his other targets, this isn't a victim rant -- are powerless to stop him and do not have the access he has to create a mob and sic them on everyone he hates. So -- now that I think about it -- Letterman's behavior is bullying, mobbing (Google it, it's a word) AND hostage-taking. You read it here, first, folks (and I've put so much time into this I'm copying it to post on my blog).
Going after someone's children flies past bullying into hostage taking, as I point out at my blog. It is notice to anyone courageous enough to take the battering that goes with public life that it will extend to their family members, too. For most people, the thought of exposing their children to attacks is horrifying. And that is the intent of the people like Letterman who do this: to destroy their enemies and drive them out of the political marketplace. It is an extremely effective technique. I got run out of the lesbian community in the 1990's, as I mention in a recent post, because Margaret was assaulted at a conference when I was 15 or 20 feet away from her and couldn't move fast enough to intervene. The reporter from a Baltimore gay newspaper thought nothing of the assault and did not -- actually, refused -- to report it. Margaret, my late life partner, was quadriplegic due to multiple sclerosis. So there isn't anyone these loons are above attacking.
We must fight back. We must stop the bullying. We must start with Letterman. We must win. Instructions are posted on my blog.

Well, I never thought I'd be saying this to you, but here goes: THANK YOU!!!
I have made a number of excellent arguments at my site on why getting David Letterman fired is an important battle, not least of which is that if we don't, it will embolden millions more bullies. I do hope you and some of your readers will come over and read why we must do this and how they will benefit personally if they undertake the fight. It takes awhile to turn off the flow of money from sponsors and persuade celebrities not to stink up their careers by coming on his show, but that is how these kinds of battles are won -- with consistent, persistent effort.
I hope you will be willing to make a place on your blogroll for "A Conservative Lesbian." I am going on back to my place now to put "Rightwing Nuthouse" on mine.
Oh -- and the mind reels -- Ann Coulter linked my blog today for my battle to get Letterman fired!
Link added. And congrats on the Coulter link.
Don't worry, I'll do something to piss you off tomorrow.
