    I have been saying this all along. A bunch of people show from across the country show up for a political rally, it's a plus no matter who does it. It shows people do care and are motivated to make the country better. I might not agree with how the people at the rally want to make things better, but I can respect the desire.

    Actually both rallies (Beck and Stewart) were large achievements. Both were civil, peaceful and had reasonable success in getting their message conveyed.

    This numbers pissing match will probably go on, but in itself it seems to undermine the point of both rally efforts. Morbidly fascinating....

    You know, I am kind of disappointed by what I am seeing here. On the side of the Liberals, you have a couple of comedians. On the side of the Conservatives, you have blowhards like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.

    Whatever happened to the likes of MLK and William F. Buckley Jr.? On both the right and the left, political discourse has certainly gone into the proverbial crapper.

    No. That's not what it was about.

    The message of these rallies was pretty strange. It was a rally to "promote moderation" or whatever yet promoting a political agenda at the rally was not allowed. It doesn't make sense to me. Stewart/Colbert are idiots for this one.

    Promote sanity was the message. Any promotion of moderation would be for a promotion of moderation in discourse, and in our rhetoric towards one another. Moderation in ideology was not the point, you can still have your political views whatever they may be, just be moderate in your temperament and attitude to those who disagree and do not share your views

    Moderation of the rhetoric is I believe the message. You can disagree with some one without calling them a nazi kinda thing.

    Hence my sarcastic post. This wasn't a rally. It was a free live comedy show.
