Default Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity

http://www.rallytorestoresanity.com/

Who else is attending?

I'll be in DC for the Marine Marathon so now my buddy and I are planning to go to the Rally as well. Should be interesting regardless of what your politics are.

And...A Funny video about it. If you fastforward a bit.

Isn't the Colbert March to Keep Fear Alive supposed to be the opposition to the Rally to Restore Sanity (aka The Million Moderate March)?

All in all, if these actually go down, it should be a pretty fun Saturday in DC.

Stewart is a flaming liberal, i dont care what he's trying to look like, be it moderate or whathaveyou. He's also the conduit that waaaay to many gen-x'ers and mellinian generation people are getting their news from. (Complete with his political bend). This whole thing is timed right around election time, and nothing good can come of this rally i assure you.

I personally think it's just a Big rally were both of them are going to have fun. They aren't Pinned at each others throats or anything. I'm guessing it's a Mutual Publicity Stunt. Other wise they wouldn't have links to each others pages on thier page. My Friend is going, she already booked a Hotel.

The Intrawebs are Serious Business. I don't think they are up to anything sinister. If anything, it's probably just for Entertainment purposes. The Things you'll find out about Gen - Xer's (I think I am one, Not sure what defines them) is they understand That kind of 'bend' that both of them put on thier 'news'. It's Entertainment though, That's all. If anybody can't see the humor in it, and take it for that, they should be given thier frontal lobe back. < .

At first i thought it was kind of a low blow of the 8/28 rally which i attended but at the same time i can imagine it would be fun. I definitely don't agree with Jon on politics but you don't watch Jon for serious news or politics.
