RALLY TO RESTORE SANITY vs MARCH TO KEEP FEAR ALIVE

by Dustin D'Addato on September 16, 2010

Just moments ago Jon Stewart made his big announcement.  Jon is stepping up to do his part for America with his “Rally to Restore Sanity“.  I can hear the chants now…”REASONABLE DEBATE!  REASONABLE DEBATE! THERE ARE DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW.  BUT GLENN BECK IS A MORON”  It’s Saturday October 30th, 2010 in our nation’s capital (which is Washington D.C. in case you are a beauty school drop out).

Here’s how the website describes it:

Because we’re looking for those people. We’re looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn’t be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it’s appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler. Or Charlie Chaplin in certain roles.

Are you one of those people? Excellent. Then we’d like you to join us in Washington, DC on October 30 — a date of no significance whatsoever — at the Daily Show’s “Rally to Restore Sanity.” Ours is a rally for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs) — not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority. If we had to sum up the political view of our participants in a single sentence… we couldn’t. That’s sort of the point.

But if you would prefer a little more truthiness then you may want to head over Stephen Colbert’s “March To Keep Fear Alive”

Here’s how Mr. Colbert’s website describes it:

America, the Greatest Country God ever gave Man, was built on three bedrock principles: Freedom. Liberty. And Fear — that someone might take our Freedom and Liberty. But now, there are dark, optimistic forces trying to take away our Fear — forces with salt and pepper hair and way more Emmys than they need. They want to replace our Fear with reason. But never forget — “Reason” is just one letter away from “Treason.” Coincidence? Reasonable people would say it is, but America can’t afford to take that chance.

We’ll give more details as they come in.  We just wanted to make sure you had time to make your hotel reservations.
