Tea Party leader a surprise hit on Letterman show

"All day yesterday I was walking around thinking, 'Is this really happening to me?' " said Stout. She added that, to her surprise, some members of the "Late Show" staff even expressed support for the Tea Party movement, as did members of musical guest Alan Jackson's band. "It was a really wonderful experience." But one thing stood out most in her mind, she recalls: "The thing that was really an experience for me was going to the Ed Sullivan Theater," said Stout, a naturalized U.S. citizen whose parents were both British immigrants. "When I first came to America, the Ed Sullivan show was a big deal, and to get to be in that theater was really special."
