    Well, you have to take Beck more seriously than Stewart and Colbert because of the level of self-awareness of being a circus clown is not there for him. Palin by virtue of her political credentials gives her much more of a serious tone than Beck. I do not consider myself in the populist wing to really like Palin or Beck, but they are serious contributors, Palin much more so.

    Only if you GIVE them those credentials, which I do not. I give the Mayor of Chicago a billion times more respect than Palin. The woman is a joke to me. Beck is a shock-jock and nothing more.

    She was close to being the Vice President, and she was a former Governor. I do not really enjoy the woman, but I give credit where credit is due. With Beck, I agree he is a shock-jock, but he's a self-assured and powerful shock-jock.

    You know - when these rallies are held - do people travel to go to them or are they just a lot of locals from within a driving-distance radius?

    I can't imagine how people can afford to drive cross-country to attend such things in these bad economic times. . . it's always been a source of curiosity for me.

    For the 8/28 rally, people came from all over the country and even out of the country. I don't really feel the effects of the economic times at all, so I'm sure there are others out there like me.

    Will they come to this one? Not sure. It's just a gathering to make fun of Glenn Beck and tea parties, right? I suppose some people would drive across the country to see that.....

    They are probably smarter then anyone at any of the 24/7 News Channels. Scratch that, not probably, definitly.

    Snotty leftism at it hypocritical finest.
    In justifying the need for this rally Stewart put a heavy emphasis on Code Pink and similar groups/rallies. This isn't an anti-teaparty rally, this is an anti-over the top statements rally.

    I already know lots of people going (me being near the DC area).

    .

    At least to this point, it seems like a lot of effort is being made just to ridicule the people at the earlier Beck rally. (agree with them or not, believe those folks at the 8/28 event were genuine in their passion)

    Will be interesting to see what content Stewart and Colbert present at their scheduled march/rally.....
