Jon Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity and Stephen Colbert’s March to Keep Fear Alive are less than 15 days away, and the two leaders just got an extra boost of support from Lady O. Oprah Winfrey appeared on a recent episode of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and surprised the host and his audience with a major announcement. They’re all going to Washington D.C. and she’s going to foot the bill!
On Thursday, Winfrey appeared on “The Daily Show” via satellite to announce that she plans on flying to Washington D.C. to take part in Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity, which takes place at the end of the month. Not only will she fly herself out there but she’s supplying the entire studio audience with airfare so that they can attend as well. It’s not quite Australia, but it’s something.
Each audience member found a ticket underneath their seat thanks to the sneaky spies that Winfrey have working for her over at Comedy Central. In other news, we also discovered that Colbert will be combining his March to Keep Fear Alive with Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity so they can share a permit.
The super rally will take place on October 30th.
What do you think of Oprah attending the event? Did you expect her to be involved?
