Good lord, this is the weirdest midterm elections I've seen:
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are both comedians, Annie. As best I can tell, Stewart is supposed to be a liberal and Colbert a conservative....but they both make fun of the absurd. My guess is, the rally will just be a feel-good thingie without a boatload of political content.
But I do agree, this is one weird ass election cycle.
A washed up Neverwas?
I wouldn't mind being as "unsuccessful" as Jon Stewart. Neither would Obama, I suspect.
i think this reporter is on to something. great work.
Er, it's a parody of Beck's rally. Does the name not give it away?
Still haven't learned...have you?
It's a parody coming from a bunch of washed up arrogant comedians that should choose another line of work.
Sorry Greenbeard, but the right wing has thrown out anyone that disagrees with them on ANYTHING that they have become a party of inbred ideas.
They don't get satire (which is what Jon Stewart does for a living).
Go figure, Greedy Old People (the GOP) don't get humor.
There is nothing satirical about copying an idea. What will be ironic is if after all the paid trips, that's all that shows up. Now that would be amusing.
BTW, if the GOP is somewhat heavy with greedy individuals, then many on the left are trapped in group think.
"Oh! We are so good, kind, generous, it's our duty to give everyone's tax money to the unfortunate, ill-informed, uneducated so that they don't die of neglect. They are just too miserable to make it on their own. We'll take care of them! Yes, we can! We'll give them jobs at the census. We'll tell them what they may buy and what they may eat, what they may feed their children. We'll give them substandard housing and they'll like it, once they know it and live it. All we ask is they remember who fought for them and punish their enemies."
The condescension of so many on the left is really impossible to satirize and is led by the leadership, as so well illuminated this election cycle.
