For those few of you which don’t watch TV or get on the internet on a semi-regular basis, John Stewart and Stephen Colbert announced late last week that they would be holding simultaneous, competing rallies in Washington DC, on October 30th. In the wake of the Glenn Beck hosted rally which passed through on 8.28.2010 (known as Restoring Honor, more than just a little entertaining), Stewart announced on his nightly program The Daily Show that he would hold a “Rally to Restore Sanity” or the “Million Moderate March” with such signs as

I disagree with you, but I’m pretty sure you’re not Hitler

I’m not afraid of Muslims/Tea Partiers/Socialists/Gun Owners/Gays, but I am scared of spiders

Video of the announcement is here (wordpress does not support non-youtube or google video embedding)

Opposite of John Stewart is his long-time faux rival and partner-in-satire, Stephen Colbert. Colbert denounced Stewart on air and called for a counter march to restore truthiness (word of the year at one point) to the world. That is the March to Keep Fear Alive. Video Here.

I will make an attempt to try and reasonably make the effort to potentially be there, so watch for some live blogging from the scene.
