Pershing Square Says 'NO' To Sanity, Denies Permit For Los Angeles' Jon Stewart Rally
Comedy will be king on October 30 when Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert hold dueling rallies on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. In Los Angeles and other parts of the known world, shadow rallies are being organized in solidarity of inside-voices, sanity, and not throwing stuff.
Stewart announced The Rally to Restore Sanity as plea for the country to "take it down it down a notch," with Colbert's March to Keep Fear Alive functioning as its faux pundit-fueled conservative counterpart. Both are a parody of, and an alternative to, the current state of rallies in the nation.
