Minnesota Man Will Be First to "Boycott To Death"

Posted by a4g @ 5/20/2005 06:11:00 AM

Minnesota resident Marlin Dandridge is nearing death, as he slowly starves himself and refuses all attempts to offer him food and water. His daughter, Crystal, who has held vigil beside her father for three weeks now, spoke to Point Five in an interview that was sometimes poignant, sometimes angry. She blames nationally syndicated radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt for her father's current condition.

"Daddy loves Hugh," she said from the living room of her father's modest suburban home. "He listens every day. When Hugh said boycott Target because they wouldn't let the Salvation Army on the property at Christmas, Daddy boycotted. When Hugh called for action against Medarex pharmaceuticals, Daddy stopped taking his medicine. When Hugh said boycott Vermont, Daddy stopped visiting Grandma. When Hugh called for this latest Pepsi boycott, Daddy followed right along. The sugar from that Pepsi was only thing still keeping Daddy alive."

The jocular Hewitt, author of Blog, is known for his advocacy of calm politicking and the values of compromise and party unity, but is frequently known to spin off into raving madness when calling for boycotts of leading firms.

"Hugh's irresponsible calls for boycott at the slightest provocation have left Daddy without any way to eat or drink. He can't bathe because the soap is from Proctor & Gamble. He's wasting away and Hugh Hewitt doesn't care."

While her frequent calls to the Hugh Hewitt show have been rebuffed by Generalismo Duane, Crystal is still holding out hope that she will be able to contact Hewitt. She has started a blog of her own, and will soon be posting reviews of "Blog" and "If It's Not Close, They Can't Cheat". She believes the lure will be too great for Hewitt to resist.

Teamsters are on strike.

Teamsters have long memories and a long reach for those you disobey the orders of the TEAMSTERS.

Remember Jimmy Hoffa.
