Jon Stewart is going to be holding a Rally To Restore Sanity on October 30, 2010, in our nations capital. Mr. Stewart wants his march to be for people who have better things to do than to march on Washington, DC. So who is invited? It seems that anyone who doesn’t want to attend a rally is welcome. On his website he states:
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.
This does make one stop and think. Are the people who go to rallies on Washington DC insane? Or are we who don’t the only sane ones? If you can’t figure out which one you are, you may wish just to stay at home. That is what I am going to do.
How about you? Rally or stay at home?
