Today Is The “Rally To Restore Sanity and/or Fear”

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
Comedy Central’s Steven Colbert

If you’re a logical person, consider yourself to be sane, and have had it with this election years bombardment of sick twisted “I am not a witch” political ads…..and you haven’t committed suicide yet, tune in to the Jon Stewart. Steven Colbert rally being held in Washington, D.C. today beginning at 12 noon.

(I assume coverage would be provided by the Comedy Central network, but to be on the safe side, check your local listings)

Geez….that sounded kinda official didn’t it.

Yeah, I know these guys are categorized as comedians reporting fake news on a comedy network, but, unless you haven’t bothered to pay attention, most of what they report, in a comedic fashion, is much better than watching Fox or any other mainstream network.

WHY you ask….or maybe you didn’t…in either case, I’m tellin’ ya why anyhow.

Because, as I’ve said a gazillion times before…….. (attempting to keep calm)


In other words…..”fair and balanced.”

Um….sorry Fox news. But you deserve it.

Example of fair and balanced for those of you who have no idea what the hell fair and balanced is and think it’s when you go to a circus and watch the jugglers is explained below.

Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show”  in August made a point rarely mentioned in the flap over the Park51 Islamic center that Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a Saudi, who Fox has been criticizing for funding radical Muslim organizations, and, whom Fox News was aggressively tying to the mosque project, is the “SECOND” biggest shareholder in “News Corp”….which……just happens to be…….Fox’s corporate parent.


Doesn’t matter, a long as you can get the public to believe you’re fair and balanced and that everyone else reporting the news can’t be trusted.  Sorry Fox…..just telling it like it is.

(this has nothing to do with actual foxes, those animals that roam the woods…..just trying to clarify things here)

I’m not going to just single out Fox News, but all the other major news outlets who are a bunch of namby pambys too.  Most of which are afraid of their own shadows lest some sponsor call in and threaten to pull their ads if they so much as offend a sponsors political or ideological beliefs.

Did anyone catch the news item recently that some Senators and Congressmen who voted against the government’s stimulus program and were the most vocal condemning the program took advantage of those funds themselves.


Probably not because most of you were watching “Dancing With The Stars” or “Dogg The Bounty hunter.”

If you’re a dyed in the wool conservative, liberal, independent, Democrat, Republican, Tea Potty or whatever other party member, just this one time, watch this rally.  Maybe even watch Steven Colbert and Jon Stewart on Comedy Central  weeknights and see if perhaps you’ve been depriving your brain of some good eye-opening stuff. One time wouldn’t hurt ya. You betcha by golly it might work out for ya.

(I’m learnin’ how ta speak Alaskin)

Hmmmmm…….does Rosetta Stone, the language teaching program have a “How To Speak Alaskin” CD?

THEN…….come Tuesday when a lot of us smart logical intelligent voters…..and of course some brain-dead ones as well….go to the polls, we can make the right decision.

Witch…um…..which is witch…(Rats)….which is do we throw the bums out because they haven’t solved all of our problems in two years, or should we give them another two years, or maybe even 8 years, like we gave GWB…..who we obviously gave a very long leash to.

Weren’t those wonderful years…….sigh…….Gawd I miss Dick Cheney and Karl Rove.

Speaking of Carl Rove……check this out….he doesn’t think Sarah Palin is Presidential material.  Boy, I betcha she’s gonna be really ticked off at him.  You betcha!

So, all in all, regardless of your party affiliation, relax, pour yourself a relaxing drink……check your local listings for the coverage of today’s rally, and just chill out.


You can go back to being a political zombie wearing blinders while attempting to see the trees beyond the forest.

But….don’t throw that political zombie outfit out after Saturday’s rally……..

Halloween is the 31st and we need scary people like you out there prior to election day……

Which, as far as I’m concerned, should be classified as Halloween II…………

Everybody…..keep an eye open for a woman politician at the polls dressed as a witch.

Cookie and eye of newt anyone?

UPDATE: Congratulations to Steven & Jon…..a great rally with hundreds of thousands of people.
