Was the"Restore Sanity and/or Keep Fear Alive" rally a trick or treat?
The Stephen Colbert & Jon Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Keep Fear Alive" should have happened yesterday on Halloween instead. Even if the people weren't dressed up, the kooks and weirdos would have been their all natural. Here's Jon & Stephen talking about the "success" of their event.
This mock rally was really an attempt to try and upstage the Glen Beck "Restore America's Honor" rally. It's no secret that Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are two huge liberals, and their shows cater to a mostly liberal audience on Comedy Central. Even though many liberals did show up to the event, they treated the event as a joke. The crowd wasn't the size of the Beck rally either. If the intent of the rally was to be humorous, then I guess their mission was accomplished. I was able to catch the post rally discussion on CSPAN. It was funny to say the least. CSPAN normally has three telephone numbers for Democrats, Republicans & Independents to call into in order to talk to the host. It was hilarious listening to Democrats calling the Republican number saying to the host that were Republicans, but they are going to vote for Democrats come Tuesday because of the rally. Only an absolute moron would believe that those callers were really Republicans. Well, anyways Reason TV shot some footage and interviewed the people at the rally. Let's just say that the people who attended were "unique". Once again, liberals aren't known for being the sharpest knives in the drawer for a reason.
As the person interviewing the people noted. The Colbert/Stewart rally was very how should I say "white". This was the fake criticism of Beck's rally by the left. So now we have an event where there was very little racial diversity present at a rally hosted by "two liberals" with the crowd being "mostly if not all liberal". Where are the folks over at MSNBC on this? Hope Yen & Calvin Woodward of the Associated Press commented on Jon's words on the racial demographics of the crowd. "It's a perfect demographic sampling of the American people," Stewart cracked to a crowd filled with mostly "younger whites".
