    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.



    100% of yours in fact.

    Stewart made that point about why we don't hear more from the radical moderates or center majority -- we got **** to do. We're busy.

    Stewart says he's not looking for the seasoned rally-goer who may flock to hyper-political gatherings carrying an homemade Obama-is-Hitler--or Bush-is-Hitler-- sign. Instead, Stewart described the event as a "million moderate march" and a "clarion call for rationality"—in other words, an antidote to the overheated protests on the left and right.

    "You may be asking yourself, right now, sitting at home, but am I the right type of person to go to this rally," said Stewart. "The fact that you would even stop to ask yourself that question, as opposed to just, let's say, jumping up, grabbing the nearest stack of holy books, strapping on a diaper and just pointing your car towards D.C.—that means I think you might just be right for it."
    Unfortunately, our apathy may bite us in the ass this Nov. I want more moderate right of center GOPs getting into office, I think we need more balance to force fiscal responsibility--Don't spend it, unless you can pay for it. But the big ones, like Medicare and entitlements, will either party step up and make hard choices? These issues usually get used to swing voters in a two year election cycle.

    However, these Teatard candidates, they're not fiscal conservatives, they're far-right wingnuts with extremists ideas that sound great to the Teabrain masses who don't have a clue about economics or public policy. We don't need more Barbara Bachmanns.

    To the extent that these outsider candidates become the new face of Republicans, the GOP is going to have PR problems. Karl Rove is starting to get a taste for this.

    Yeah, all the far-right 'Libertarians' around here are quite humorous.

    Have they ever actually read the Libertarian platform?? It's an interesting but unrealistic 'thought exercise' in Darwinian public policy. As if removing all the barriers and boundaries would solve everything. But the far-rights love to cherry-pick from it, and change their label when the so-called Rinos let them down.

    If it walks like a rightie, barks like a rightie... it's a far-rightie.

    Yeah, but this one has the best message of them all "America, take it down a notch"

    Damned straight.

    I agree it is a good message, but it feel like we just got over the Beck rally and now we have to deal with this one.

    I agree. Damned straight!

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: It's Official Jon Stewart & Colbert will host a rally on October 30th in DC

    Musical Act Suggestions for both rallies:

    "Restore Sanity" - Green Day, Ozzy

    "Keep Fear Alive" - blow the dust off Alice Cooper or Snoop-Dog

    Special Appearances:

    "Restore Sanity" - Robin Williams, Lewis Black

    "Keep Fear Alive" - I miss George Carlin... Who's the guy on SNL who does Beck? Show a video narrated by John Malkovich.
