Wondering if anyone else is going to be going to D.C. the day before Halloween to attend the rallies Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are holding there.

Some background info:  Glen Beck held his "Rally to Restore Honor" on Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, and basically gathered 87k people and preached his usual bullshit to a mass of tea party enthusiasts, conservatives and other groups of poorly informed Americans that listen to him.  Some people on Reddit.com saw this, and pushed Colbert, who's known to be an avid user of the site, to stage his own mock rally.  They organized themselves and showed their worth by donating an asston of money to one of Collbert's favorite charities, and ultimately their voices were acknowledged by Colbert himself, who shortly after planned a rally in D.C. (Rally to Restore Fear, clearly satirical) simultaneously with Jon Stewart (Rally to Restore Sanity).

You can find all this info on the Google with some minimal effort.

So, yeah.  Anyone going to be in the area or specifically going to attend?  I certainly will be.

I thought Colbert's was "March to Keep Fear Alive." And I'd love to go, because A) I love D.C. and B) I'm sick of where both the left and the right are trying to take this country. But it's too short notice for me.

You're right, it is called that.  And I'm in luck because HuffPost is going to bus everyone who wants to go from NYC, which I'm 45 minutes away from.  Sucks that you can't come, this is really turning out to be something epic

They combined their rallies and it is now called "The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear." I'm attending a satellite rally being held in Chicago. You might want to check and see if there is a rally going on near you.
