why not just wait a day and dress in costumes?

via brilliant @ breakfast, jon stewart and stephen colbert are planning a beck-a-palooza of their own:

the web page tells us
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 someone is when that person is actually hitler. or charlie chaplin in certain roles.

are you one of those people? excellent. then we'd like you to join us in washington, dc on october 30 -- a date of no significance whatsoever -- at the daily show's "rally to restore sanity." 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.

Rally to Restore Sanity
The Daily Show With Jon StewartMon - Thurs 11p / 10c
Daily Show Full EpisodesPolitical HumorTea Party

March to Keep Fear Alive
The Colbert ReportMon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c
Colbert Report Full Episodes2010 ElectionFox News

go here and/or here to sign up.

it looks like it'll be a swell version show of the daily/colbert shows, so it might be fun.

we think we'll be busy that day, practicing our bobbing for apples skills for the following night's festivities, but we know some folks that are planning to be there, so if you make it, too, we'll see you on the news coverage!

(thx & a tip o'the kangaroo tail to the hill for the video embeds!)

Ha! I love that they have this counter rally going on... they can bitch slap Glenn Beck & the Tea Party express formats.

I was incensed that @#@#% Beck had the nerve to choose the historic "I have a Dream" MLK speech day & place to have their bullshit rally. As if his followers have anything in common with the people in the civil rights movement.

Beck sells fear & loathing, hidden under some conjured cloak of god & patriotism.

Creative genius to have counter rallies under the banners of "sanity" & "keeping up the fear".
Colbert has a line in his promo of the rally saying

"But never forget -- "Reason" is just one letter away from "Treason." Coincidence? Reasonable people would say it is, but America can't afford to take that chance. "

I love it!!!!!

Mock away & serve up the big time satire.
How fun is this concept!!!
