Today's Comedy Central-hosted "Rally to Restore Sanity" is now expected to be a truly historic occasion. Specifically, it will go down in history as the last time (for the foreseeable future) that liberals had anything to laugh about.
The event consists of two parts: the "Rally to Restore Sanity" in which liberal Jon Stewart will pound away at the Right wing, and the "March to Keep Fear Alive" in which liberal Stephen Colbert (while pretending to be an insane conservative) will pound away at the Right wing.
All of which could be moderately fun if the event was really and truly nothing more than a comedy event. But it stopped being that when alleged president Barack Obama endorsed the event, and dropped in on Stewart's show to tout the rally while promoting his own upcoming movie "Dude, Where's My Economy?" The hope is, of course, that the same ill-informed youth who consider Jon Stewart to be the "most trusted newsman" on television will make the big jump to becoming ill-informed voters.
The Huffington Post is supplying free bus rides to the event, and many other liberal bastions (and we do believe they're complete and utter bastions) are now working to claim the event as their own...trying to turn it into a last gasp of relevance before the electoral tidal wave hits.
So have fun at your little party, kids. The grown-ups are coming home Tuesday.
