David Letterman detractors aren't buying the funnyman's seemingly-earnest apology Monday night to the family of former Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

A cluster of Palin supporters, infuriated with Letterman's joke regarding her 14-year-old daughter Willow having sex with Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, will take to the streets of New York Tuesday in hopes of getting the late night talk show host fired for the indiscretion.

The protest is slated to commence at 4:30 p.m. EST in front of the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the show is taped. The Web site directs offended viewers to contact Letterman's national advertiers (such as Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg's and Old Navy, among others), as well as their local CBS affiliates, to voice their disgust with the Indiana native's brand of humor.

Per their Web site, the group's mission statement is that: "David Letterman Must Be Held Be Accountable For His Disgraceful Statements; 62 Year Old Letterman Violates Common Decency With Sexist Insults of 14 Year Old Girl."
