Rallies For The Rest Of Us

Leave it to the internet. It was announced to day that Jon “The Best News Man In comedy” Stewart and Stephen “Truthiness” Colbert will hold opposing rallies in the national mall. Stewart will hold an event to counter-act the recent “Million Moron March” held by Glenn Beck. Titled  the Rally to Restore Sanity, he calls it “… 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.” Colbert’s rally, entitled Keep Fear Alive, will focus on mocking the hell out of Beck and his brain-dead minions.

It will be interesting to see how many people turn out for these event considering the popularity of both men. Also interesting will be how Fox News manipulates the attendance records to “prove” that not many people came. If there was ever a gathering on the mall that deserved support, it’s this one. Or two.
