    He was scheduled to, but I have been doing housework on and off all day so unsure.

    No, after a "formidable opponent" debate between Stewart and Colbert, Peter Pan (John Oliver) and the crowd killed the fear monger, and Stewart gave the closing message.

    At the end of his show he asked his viewers to visit this website:

    Rally to Restore Sanity

    I wish I could go.
    Is this a democrat version of the tea party?"Lets pretend were not really democrats to sucker people into voting for democrats rally?"
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    The joke apparently. Realize you are quoting a webpage with a button labeled "Don't click this".

    I think so, I watched most of the rally on Comedy Central and it was fun watching and I thought is was a huge success.

    I missed the button, I was just quoting the original post.

    As I said, I can't speak to the partisanship or lack there of of Stewart, I could barely hear him. I was simply saying that many of his supporters and fans didn't seem to actually buy into his message of "restoring sanity", having reasonable political discourse, and making this event non-partisan.


    Some people apparently did not get the idea behind the rally...
    Indeed.

    The bolded one is awesome! Looking forward to the pictures, thank you for the report.
    Yeah, I laughed with that one. I thanked each and every person I saw that had an actual funny sign that actually followed in the supposed spirit of the event rather than just "HUR HUR TEA BAGGERS SUCK"

    I don't doubt it was a success. I just think it's funny that he says they are looking for people who want to open their window and shout at the top of their lungs, but who also think shouting is annoying and counterproductive.

    I think Stewart is very funny. Colbert not so much, mostly he is just insulting and annoying. I do think it's funny that some liberals are hoping that this comedy routine will drive young voters to the polls. I guess whatever it takes at this point.

    Gawker's live blog made a good point:

    2:47 Re: 24-hour media and politics: "If we amplify everything, we hear nothing." Hey, that's kind of like Anthony Weiner's critique of The Daily Show. But hey, we're down for a collective action media-fixing solution when it comes!
