Dualing Rally March

Because reason is just one letter away from treason!

UPDATE: More on the march/rally, and the blogosphere’s role in getting it going.

UPDATE 2: Oh the irony! CNN has a quick poll asking “Is the Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert rally on Washington D.C. serious or just a stunt?” Proof that CNN just doesn’t get it? I don’t know how long the poll will be up, but if you scroll to the bottom of this page, you can let them know what you think. Right now, it is running over 2 to 1 for “serious”.

  1. I so very much want to go. I wonder if any of the regular commenters on this blog (as apposed to commentators 😉 ) will be going.

    This is going to be great. Shame I can’t go. I hope someone is able to record and put it up on the internet somewhere. D.C. is never going to be the same.

    I would love to buy all your tickets. Unfortunately, as a poor college student, I can only afford mine. Which is why I’m splitting hotel fees with another poor college student.

    If anyone else is going, we should meet up! Bring a sign that says “Politicalirony.com” somewhere on it!

    I think they should hand out signs that say “I <3 puppies." Because most reasonable people do.

    I’m giving a big Hallowe’en party the night afterwards, unfortunately. Would love to be there. Oh well, I have to be reasonable about this, I suppose.

  13. And Hallowe’en is *important*. 😉

    (Actually, it is. My favorite holiday of the year.)

  16. Asking if it’s serious or a stunt is a question which undermines the spirit of comedy in its entirety. If you have to decide that it’s one or the other, you don’t have a joke. You don’t have humor. You don’t have reality.

    Its as if the media has trained itself to be completely detrimental to every single thing ever. The way they ask questions is like they sat down and asked themselves, “What is the single most absurd way I can look at this situation, and how can I embody that in ten words or less?”

    I think it happened when the networks started running the news departments with the same people running the sports departments (starting with ABC back in the 80s). I remember when I lived in England watching the Olympics on BBC and really enjoying them, then when I got back to the states I tried to watch the Olympics on American TV, and about the third time a commentator asked someone who had just won a silver medal “Don’t you feel terrible for not winning the gold” I just had to turn it off.

    Which fits in with Elvis’ “What is the single most absurd way I can look at this situation, and how can I embody that in ten words or less?”
