Jon Stewart Plans ‘Restoring Sanity’ Rally to Counter Glenn Beck Event–October 30

“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 some is when that person is actually Hitler,” Stewart says on his Daily Show website.

The date, Oct. 30, “has no significance whatsoever,” Stewart says gleefully. “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.”

. . . . . . .

And lest anyone think it’s just about answering Tea Party conservatives and the Beck-a-palooza last Aug. 28, Comedy Central’s other wild and crazy news satirist, Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report, says he’ll hold a competing rally the same day, called “The March to Keep Fear Alive” to combat “creeping reasonableness.” Stewart’s people “want to replace our fear with reason,” Colbert wrote. “But never forget ‘reason,’ is just one letter away form ‘treason.'”

Short Review

Phi Beta Iota: These two individuals are making a huge contribution.   The is no underestimating the common sense of the American people BUT they have to be engaged, their voices heard, and integrity maintained in the three branches of government.
