    I'm also waiting to see if Fox News will hypocritically show only the nutty attendees at this rally, as they have criticized the media for using that tactic with the Tea Party.

    I'm also going to guess they will focus on how this event will mainly be college aged people.

    We'll see

    This comment makes me think you don't know what the Daily Show and the Colbert Report are all about. Jon Stewart spends a good amount of time pointing out the ridiculous things that happen in the world and in the media, and Colbert uses sarcasm to make fun of the same types of things. These two are perfect for this kind of rally. And they wont pick speakers just because they are liberals or Democrats. They will pick people who are level headed and intelligent.

    I would really, really like to go to this. Unfortunately, it's about 10 hours away.

    Absolutely Perfect timing!

    Yeah, those damned reasonable-ers. They must be stopped.

    edit: Also, do people not understand that Stewart and Colbert poke fun of the Obama administration, democrats in general, and MSNBC/CNN all the time?

    (CNN especially gets smacked around all the time, and they sure deserve it)

    That's cause you're asking for an impossibility.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Agreed 100%. The extremists are a minority, but they are actively getting out the vote such as in O'Donnells election in Delaware. If the majority of voters, especially moderate voters, continue to sit on the sidelines, then our elections will be determined by a radical minority.

    The News Hour on PBS comes very close.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    Then moderates should vote. I do not sympathize with them if they are disagreeing with O' Donnell and do not vote. Sorry, stop tearing up.

    "Radical moderates... center majority"... ROTFLOL. This is why he should have the rally.

    I LOVE the timing of it. These people think it will make a difference, and it will... as a reminder... to those who want to boot the Radical Moderates out of office.

    The core issue being that Democratic voters actually want moderates in power, while conservatives want the extremists. And somehow they think this is a good idea.
