Stewart and Colbert Announce Dueling Rallies
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are coming to Wasington, DC on October 30 for their very own dueling rallies—seriously. On Thursday night's "Daily Show with Jon Stewart," the comedian announced plans for a "Rally to Restore Sanity." Not to be outdone, Stepehn Colbert fired back with plans for his march on the same day—the "March to Keep Fear Alive." CNN writes, “given both hosts' penchant for satire, it was unclear whether the rallies would actually take place. But Stewart was adamant on his Thursday show that he had reserved a spot on the National Mall, saying, "the forms have been filled out, the checks have been written."
