Comedy Channel Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are having a rally in DC on October 30th. It is the "Rally to Restore Sanity". Lets Join in!
Two Comedy Central funnymen are apparently entering into the partisan political fray with rallies of their own in the nation's capital.
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have set October 30 as the date for their respective rallies.
On Thursday night's airing of "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," the comedian announced plans for a "Rally to Restore Sanity."
"See you October 30 on the National Mall to spread the timeless message, 'Take it down a notch for America,' " he said.
Stewart dubbed the event a "clarion call for rationality."
"A million moderate march, where we take to the streets to send a message to our leaders and our national media that says, 'We are here! We ... are only here until 6 though, because we have a sitter,'" he said.
On "The Colbert Report," which airs immediately after Stewart's show, Colbert fired back with plans for his "March to Keep Fear Alive."
"Now is not the time to take it down a notch. Now is the time for all good men to freak out for freedom," Colbert said.
Stewart said on his Thursday show that he had reserved a spot on the National Mall.
"The forms have been filled out, the checks have been written," he said.
Stewart and Colbert have submitted one application for a permit for the Washington Monument grounds on October 30, National Park Service spokesman Bill Line confirmed Friday. Link
Bravo! The Million Moderate March!
Hope it will be a good turnout! Good luck Stewart and Colbert. It may be difficult to get a large number of reasonable, sane progressive Americans out to DC than it was for Glenn Beck to bring out thousands of crazy "Muslim-hating, immigrant-hating, Gay-hating, feminist-hating" loons and stupid nutjobs who loves Jesus.
Save the Date and come rally!
