Whose side are you on?

As many of you probably heard there is going to be a lot going on on October 30th in Washington, DC. Stephen Colbert will be hosting the March to Keep Fear Alive, while John Stewart will be hosting the Rally to Restore Sanity. In case you have not heard anything about these two events, here is some info about what each event is about.

The Rally to Restore Sanity is looking for people who “think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn’t be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it’s appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler.” They also say theirs “is a rally for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs) — not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority.”

While the March to Keep Fear Alive wants to remind us that “America, the Greatest Country God ever gave Man, was built on three bedrock principles: Freedom. Liberty. And Fear — that someone might take our Freedom and Liberty” and that ” ‘Reason’ is just one letter away from ‘Treason.’ Coincidence? Reasonable people would say it is, but America can’t afford to take that chance. ”

In a world where Ronald Reagan can be President, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura can be Governors, and Clint Eastwood and Jerry Springer can be Mayors, it seems the line between entertainment and politics is getting a little blurred. Even this morning Stephen Colbert (in character) testified before a House Judiciary subcommittee.

Maybe these men have more political sway than even they realize. So, which rally would you attend?
