Jon Stewart leads Rally to Restore Sanity, Stephen Colbert counters with March to Keep Fear Alive

Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are at it again. On October 30, "a date of no significance whatsoever," they'll be leading opposing rallies in Washington, D.C. In response to hysteria of "people who believe that Obama is a secret Muslim planning a socialist takeover of America so he can force his radical black liberation Christianity down our throats," Stewart's rally is in favor of keeping peace. He also targets people who believe "George Bush let 9/11 happen to help pad Dick Cheney's Haliburton stock portfolio." The rally encourages maintaining respectful disagreements, and not drawing Hitler moustaches on people unless "that person is actually Hitler. Or Charlie Chaplin in certain roles." On the other side, Stewart's frenemy Steven Colbert will lead the March to Keep Fear Alive. "There are dark, optimistic forces trying to take away our Fear -- forces with salt and pepper hair and way more Emmys than they need," Colbert says. "They want to replace our Fear with reason. But never forget -- 'Reason' is just one letter away from 'Treason.' Coincidence? Reasonable people would say it is, but America can't afford to take that chance."The Daily Show With Jon StewartMon - Thurs 11p / 10cRally to Restore Sanitywww.thedailyshow.comFollow Zap2it and @cadlymack  on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news.Photo Credit: Comedy Central
