Comedy Central funnymen Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert have big plans for October 30. Stewart’s “Rally To Restore Sanity” will go up against Colbert’s “March To Keep Fear Alive” in Washington DC, and it is sure to be a media frenzy.
The announcement of these two rallies comes as the duo’s response to Glenn Beck’s own “Restoring Honor” rally that took place earlier this year on the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech in the same spot.
Jon Stewart commented on his rally saying, “See you October 30 on the National Mall to spread the timeless message, ‘Take it down a notch for America.’”
Steven Colbert explained his “March To Keep Fear Alive” by saying, “Now is not the time to take it down a notch. Now is the time for all good men to freak out for freedom.”
Ha… I guess. But given the fact that both these guys love a good joke, it is not clear whether the October 30 event will actually take place. Stewart insisted on The Daily Show last night, though, that “the forms have been filled out, the checks have been written.” We shall see.
