For the uninformed
The Rally To restore Sanity/And or Fear!
Background: Coming off the heels of Glen's beck Rally many fans were pressuring the creators of The Daily Show, and Colbert Report (Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert Respectively) to hold a rally of their own. After weeks, and weeks of hints the Rally was announced. At first Jon Stewart, and Steven Colbert were to hold competing rallies to fit with each of their characters.
Jon was going to hold 'The Rally to Restore Sanity' a Rally to help America tone down the rhetoric, and you know be sane. It was designed as a Rally for those on any side of the political spectrum who prefer reasonable discussion to partisan bickering, and for those too busy to be a lunatic (99% of americans)
While Colbert was going to hold a competing Rally with the exact opposite goal. A march to Keep Fear Alive. A March on DC to scare the crap out of everyone. of Course since Colbert is a humorous parody of a right wing pundint it is obvious this is a mockery of fear tactics used on both sides.
In the end on the 'Rally To Restore Sanity' got a permit to hold a Rally so the two got combined created the 'Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear!'
What Will It be: no one knows. Rumors of Special guests, and musical talents have been abound but the actual content has been hush hush. Jon said it was to be a 'Rally version of his show' which is good for fans of his shows. The main Theme is 'Tone it Down America' so it's expected that many of the speakers will plead with America to keep it reasonable.
When is it: TODAY! IN AN HOUR!
12:00 PM (noon)Eastern Standard Time to 3:00 PM
So here's the questions: Do you agree with the Rally? To You Disagree? Are you going to be watching it? Are you going to ignore it? Do you think It will have an effect on the elections on tuesday?
