BREAKING: Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to Host Opposing Rallies in Washington D.C.

What's that dull, scraping sound? It's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, sharpening their knuckles for a face-off that promises to be bigger than Nixon/Kennedy, Ali/Foreman, Aniston/Jolie, 50/Nas, Joe/The Volcano, Alien/Predator, Bunny/Fudd and Ecks/Sever combined.

On October 30, 2010, Jon and The Daily Show will lead the first-ever Rally to Restore Sanity on the National Mall in Washington D.C. — a movement of "people who have been too busy to go to rallies" — to beg America to stop shouting, throwing and drawing Hitler mustaches on people other than Hitler (or Charlie Chaplin).

Not to be outdone, The Colbert Nation is calling on all freedom-loving patriots to challenge The Daily Show's dark, optimistic forces by marching on the Mall at the same time to help Keep Fear Alive.

Which side are you on? Visit the rally pages and declare your allegiance!

I'm seriously thinking of blowing off a wedding (for former co-worker of my DH, never met the guy, and DH and he only worked "together" for about six months) that day to go down there with my son. Yes, I know, old women shouldn't be hanging around with twentyish men, but DS knows his way around DC blindfolded. If this turns out to be big - like tens of thousands, then I think we'd only go to the metro and ride the metro in. Decisions, decisions...Oh, and my DH would never go. He hates crowds, and he can't stand for long periods of time on his new knee yet.

I'd like to go too but I have a big Halloween party that night. I'm one of the people hosting it so there's no blowing it off. I really love the idea of a "Restoring Sanity" rally though.

Never watched either one and I also have a big, traditional Halloween party to go to at a friends house.

Isn't that the truth! I've got two twentyish sons who I like to hang out with.

Now *that* is a rally I would go to. Sounds like fun. Which would I choose? Stewart's, of course.

Although, thinking about it, there could be some great signs made for the "Keep Fear Alive" rally. Decisions, decisions.

I mentioned on another thread that DH and I saw this last night and are talking about making the drive - sounds like fun!

Dang. I have a HS reunion that I already paid for. I could have run down to I-70 and hitched a ride. Bummer. Plus I could have fed myself and spent the night with DIL. They live in Va.

But, the 40th class reunion might be as funny.
