15. Oh come on, Merm. Tell them what you really think. ;-)
Nicely put.

My email was much in the same vein, but not quite as passionate. (I have to hold myself back.) It went like this:

I just read that Slim-Fast is dropping the commercial that features Whoopi Goldberg because some remarks she made at a fundraiser for John Kerry may have disappointed some of your customers. They are your customers, its your image and you have every right to ensure that it best reflects your companys ideals.

Just so you know, I now have an irrevocable image of Slim-Fast as a right-wing, fascist product. Either that or youre a bunch of cowards that have been cowed by GOP brown shirts.

My lips will never touch Slim-Fast again.

I didn't put this in my email to them, but I can't help compare these GOP boycott threats with the tarsts that threaten to behead their hostages. It's very telling that when it comes down to a gruesome death vs. the bottom line of a business, the lost revenue is more compelling than the lost lives. It's so transparent.
