Yesterday, news broke that The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report’s Stephen Colbert would be hosting rallies to mimic the Beck/Palin rally.
On Thursday’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” the Stewart announced plans to hold an event against extremism in Washington D.C. called “Rally to Restore Sanity.”
“See you October 30 on the National Mall to spread the timeless message, ‘Take it down a notch for America,'” he said. “A million Moderate march, where we take to the streets to send a message to our leaders and our national media that says, ‘We are here! We… are only here until six though, because we have a sitter.'”
Not to be outdone, Stephen Colbert announced on his Comedy Central show, which airs directly after Stewart’s, that he was throwing a competing rally: “March to Keep Fear Alive.”
