Jon Stewart and his arch nemesis Stephen Colbert are at it again. The duo are at each other’s throats and this time it’s a battle of the rallies! According to ABC News, Stewart plans on leading a Rally to Restore Sanity at the end of October to combat Colbert’s March to Keep Fear Alive. These are both parodies of Glenn Beck’s Conservative Restoring Honor rally that took place last month. So what will Stewart and Colbert do to top each other?
On Thursday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” Stewart quipped, “We will gather on the National Mall in Washington D.C. — A million moderate march where we take to the streets to send a message to our leaders and our national media that says we are here.” While he’s doing that Colbert revealed that he has his own plans to shake things up. Here’s the video of his big announcement.
Both events will be taking place on October 30th, the day before Halloween (creepy). The good news is it’s on a Saturday so if you want to stroll down and watch you can. The bad news is, this could turn into a complete and utter mess. It will be a funny mess, but still a mess.
What rally will you be rooting for? Will you be attending?
