    Could be the largest gathering in history!

    Stage set on National Mall for Stewart, Colbert rally - CNN.com

    Washington (CNN) -- Comedy Central funnymen Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will hold a rally on the National Mall Saturday, putting a satirical spin on partisan politics three days before midterm elections.

    Stewart and Colbert's "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" is scheduled to start at noon.

    They announced the rally in September, less than three weeks after conservative talk-show host Glenn Beck hosted a much-publicized "Restoring Honor" rally on the National Mall, urging large crowds to "turn back to God" and return America to the values on which it was founded.

    Since then, Stewart's rally has grabbed headlines -- many asking, could the man making a living off mocking politicians actually be stepping into political activism?

    The comedian hasn't offered many specifics.

    "This is for the people that are too busy, that have jobs and lives, and are tired of their reflection in the media as being a divided country and a country that's ideological and conflicted and fighting. This is for those people," Stewart told CNN's Larry King

    Whos posterior did they pull out that expected turnout number? I hope they are religous.

    I suspect it would take more then a prayer or wishful thinking.

    I wonder who the line up of speakers will be.

    They'll get to hear lots of ranting and raving about how you can't let the ENEMY (Republicans) win.

    THE MESSAGE wil be......ya gotta go out and WIN ONE FOR THE OBAMA.:lol:

    It will take at least 300 million of them to restore each other's sanity. I wish them the best

    That's not counting the 200 million illegal 'immagrants' who got an education.

    *You need to see the video clip to get the joke.
