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

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

    Jon Stewart just made it official.Tonight on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart will announce that he will host the "Rally to restore Sanity" on october 30th,2010 on the National Mall in Washington DC.

    Remember how Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert mocked Glenn Beck for his Rally on the day of MLK's "I have a dream" speech anniversary. Since then many of their fans have asked both Stewart and Colbert to hold a rally in response.

    ...

    Well you have been heard because on October 30th, the "Rally to restore Sanity" will be held on the National Mall in DC. Jon Stewart said that the rally isn't for wackos only for "common sense" americans. He told his audience that Birther Signs, Truther Signs,"Obama is Hitler" signs, "Bush is Hitler" signs and other crazy aren't allowed. Only "sane" signs will be allowed LOL. He assured that he wasn't joking and the rally is real. They are set to tape The Daily Show that week in D.C !
    At the end of his show he asked his viewers to visit this website:

    Rally to Restore Sanity

    I wish I could go.

    "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!"

    Who among us has not wanted to open their window and shout that at the top of their lungs?

    Seriously, who?

    Because we're looking for those people. We're looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn't be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it's appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler. Or Charlie Chaplin in certain roles.

    Are you one of those people? Excellent. Then we'd like you to join us in Washington, DC on October 30 -- a date of no significance whatsoever -- at the Daily Show's "Rally to Restore Sanity." Ours is a rally for the people who've been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs) -- not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority. If we had to sum up the political view of our participants in a single sentence... we couldn't. That's sort of the point.

    Think of our event as Woodstock, but with the nudity and drugs replaced by respectful disagreement; the Million Man March, only a lot smaller, and a bit less of a sausage fest; or the Gathering of the Juggalos, but instead of throwing our feces at Tila Tequila, we'll be actively *not* throwing our feces at Tila Tequila. Join us in the shadow of the Washington Monument. And bring your indoor voice. Or don't. If you'd rather stay home, go to work, or drive your kids to soccer practice... Actually, please come anyway. Ask the sitter if she can stay a few extra hours, just this once. We'll make it worth your while.

    As much as I love Jon Stewart, I really don't want to hear about another damn rally. I thought Stewart was above playing these stupid pundit games.

    There's one before that on the mall too. Did you forget? Oct 2 the Ed Shultz rally? By the time we're finished talking about that one, it will be time for Stewarts. :-)

    Don't forget about Colbert's March To Keep Fear Alive Rally on the same day!

    They are really taking parody to the next level, and I really can't wait for it. I wish I could go.

    It's a parody. That is what Stewart and Colbert do.

    The fun will be how few people show up, and how high the CBS "professional out side group" estimates the crowd to be.
    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.
