Jon Stewart is set to take down Glenn Beck and his followers. Or at least make us laugh a lot.
On last night's edition of The Daily Show, the Comedy Central host announced his Rally To Restore Sanity, a response to Beck's Restoring Honor Rally on August 28.
As he explains below, it's also a response to the fact that "loud folks dominate the conversation on our country's most important issues." He wondered why the relatively sane population of the country (estimated at around 80%) aren't the ones yelling ridiculous, unproven statements. His conclusion? These people actually have "shit to do."
In response to Jon Stewart's rally, Stephen Colbert will hold the March To Keep Fear Alive. Amazing.
On October 30, though, Stewart hopes these individuals will actually do something in Washington D.C.
In a "call for rationality," the comedian really is serious about organizing a rally for citizens that take the approach of "I disagree with you, but I’m pretty sure you’re not Hitler," as well as those who are "dissatisfied, but not ideological." Heck, he even made a few signs for people in attendance to hold up.
