    Actually I don't think it is. The facebook event done by the Daily Show says it is legit.

    Colbert's part is absolutely a parody... that is what he does. It's called "March to Keep Fear Alive" for goodness sakes.

    As for Jon Stewart, he might take on a more serious role. If you watch his show, you can tell how passionate he is about politics. A comedic touch wouldn't necessarily mean there is no serious message behind the rally. And giving the moderates/independents a voice is something this country needs right now.

    Right.

    Because it matters how much socio-political pull a couple of comedians have, much less what the media machine has to say about it.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Probably, seeing how people have close to a month to make plans and much fewer people watch Comedy Central compared to Fox News.

    It's a pre-Halloween gag rally where fans of the comedy central shows get to dress up and make fun of teabaggers, teabrains, teatards, and the incredibly stupid masses that have been crapping on reason and thriving on fear.

    Restore Sanity, Keep Fear Alive...

    5,000 college students and other fans of the shows that live close to DC.

    Of course, they won't have Kotch Industries footing the bill for busses, Dick Armey's groups doing logistics.

    The point that Stewart made is that the fringe(left and right) too often dominates the discussion. 50% of the threads here prove that.

    Stewart did mention special guests TBA, I predict some musical acts, and celebrities.

    And what bothers me about it is how, according to a gallup poll ("Conservatives" Are Single-Largest Ideological Group), conservatives and moderates are of about equal numbers in the U.S.

    Yet there are no moderate mainstream news organizations (that I'm aware of).

    Only 50% from fringe left and right? I guess that is probably close enough. IMO, we should hear more from the radical middle...and the message to the fringe element shoud be to STFU....

    Yeah, I know, Tina Fey had no effect on the outcome of the 2008 election.

    Niether did Chevy Chase on the 1976 election.

    No one pays attention to political satire. It doesn't become part of the collective consciousness, the Zeitgeist. Michael Moore doesn't get under anyones skin.

    New York, Chicago, L.A. with their culture, comedians, and media, they have so little power or influence...
