    - Mark Twain

    Look at the tyranny of party -- at what is called party allegiance, party loyalty -- a snare invented by designing men for selfish purposes -- and which turns voters into chattles, slaves, rabbits, and all the while their masters, and they themselves are shouting rubbish about liberty, independence, freedom of opinion, freedom of speech, honestly unconscious of the fantastic contradiction; and forgetting or ignoring that their fathers and the churches shouted the same blasphemies a generation earlier when they were closing their doors against the hunted slave, beating his handful of humane defenders with Bible texts and billies, and pocketing the insults and licking the shoes of his Southern master.
    - "The Character of Man," Mark Twain's Autobiography

    Sorry, I was thinking this was a thread about rallys in general.
    You're really gonna enjoy my off topic Beck Rush Post.

    I do hope you all have a good time at the rally. It should be fun.

    I don't believe that was the reference.. .. ..Stewart & Colbert are the subjects of Mark Twains comments.

    I disagree. The fact Stewart is focusing on people not jumping to stupid claims right away, but people should talk about it in a more adult manor is something that should be taken very seriously. The way he is spreading this message, should not take away from the message itself right?

    Stereotypes exist for a reason. I'd say the tea party is disproportionately stocked with people like that, just like this event will probably be disproportionately stocked with people like I mentioned (if facebook's list of my friends who are going is at all accurate).

    This self-satisfied yuppie will be there. It's one of the nice things about living in DC. It's a fun, vaguely political event without all the anger inherent in a protest. I'm sure there will be some of that, but since the rally doesn't have any ostensibly serious political message beyond "LOL at Republicans" I think that the rage will be kept to a minimum.
    See, I can understand going to this event if you live in DC, but what I was really thinking of when I posted that was the half dozen kids I know from NY or points beyond who are taking a bus down to go to this thing. I mean, wtf dudes. The daily show is located on 52nd st next to the hustler club. What are you going to find 5 hours away that you can't get here?

    That's sort of where I'm coming from though. The tea parties are obviously political rallies. People get together to bitch about how dumb the other side is, march around with funny signs, and convince themselves that they're right. This rally is going to be the exact same thing for the other side, but they're pretending that it's something different.

    Sure. However, I wish people would adhere to that. In la-la land here, we see a number of liberals equating stupid with people who hold different policy positions than they do....thus those who attend the event with that in mind are basically acting antithetical to the entire purpose of it.

    Fun is in the eye of the beholder
