    I don't expect this "Rally to Restore Sanity" to be any more successful at restoring sanity to America than the "Restoring Honor" rally was at restoring honor to America.

    But sometimes people need a reminder that they are not alone in their feelings about the current status and the direction of one's own country.

    When it comes to certain issues, who's right and who's wrong depends on who you're talking to. We all have our own opinions... and that's the point. We can have disagreements, but in order to form a productive discourse we need remain civil.

    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams

    Do you realize how much you sound like Glenn Beck? The bolded part is exactly the reason for the creation of the 9/12 Movement. It's interesting how many similarities people have even though they're on opposite sides of the political stream.

    If people start surrounding other people, than we are in a heap of trouble.

    Off topic. They screwed with my Beck and Rush!

    I used to have Beck 9-11 Rush 11-2

    They gave Beck 3 hrs 10-1

    Now I'm short one hr and don't know how to divide the 4 hrs

    I'm sick of the CHANGE I've been getting.
    OMG, my heart weaps for you, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Al Franken was just a comedian. What is Glenn Beck "just" so we can not take him seriously as well?

    These gatherings are nothing more than "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report".. .. ..LIVE. I find it curious how folks are assigning to it any more than that.

    The daily show and colbert report happen LIVE 5 days a week 2 miles from where I live. That usually doesn't warrant front page treatment on google news.

    Different time, different medium.

    I doubt you've read enough Twain or watched enough Daily Show to accurately compare their relevance to their time. So, I'm not even sure why you bother commenting on something which you couldn't possibly have a meaningful opinion.

    Colbert and Stewart are certainly two of today's the most popular comedic voices. They have certainly had more success in reaching wider audiences than either Bill Maher or Dennis Miller.

    News is reported to sell the newsmaker's wares, nothing more; nothing less.
