Comedy Central funnymen Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will hold rallies on the National Mall Saturday, putting a satirical spin on partisan politics three days before midterm elections. Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” and Colbert’s “March to Keep Fear Alive” are scheduled to start at noon. They announced the rallies in September, less than three weeks after conservative talk-show host Glenn Beck hosted a much-publicized “Restoring Honor” rally on the National Mall, urging large crowds to “turn back to God” and return America to the values on which it was founded.
Whether the rally is comedy or politics really doesn’t matter. What matters is that a lot of people will have something to do today. Otherwise, they’d just be watching football (which is what I’m going to be doing- oh, and posting from time to time just to gall folks). At any rate, whatever you decide to do today, enjoy!
