As an American patriot deeply concerned about the direction of this country, I’m thinking about heading up to Washington on Oct. 30 to attend the Rally to Restore Sanity — the “million moderate march,” as Jon Stewart calls it — on the Mall. Anybody else?
And no, I’m not kidding. About any of it.
Of course, Stewart has a great way couching the deeply serious in the deeply humorous. That’s another reason I’m thinking of attending.
As he put it last night:
“You may be asking yourself right now, sitting at home: ‘But am I the right type of person to go to this rally?’ The fact that you would even stop to ask yourself that question, as opposed to just, let’s say, jumping up, grabbing the nearest stack of burnable holy books, strapping on a diaper and just pointing your car toward DC — that means I think you just might be right for it.”
