Stewart, Colbert preside over lighthearted, star-studded rally

Assisted by a colorful cast of characters, Comedy Central funnymen Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert held a raucous rally on the National Mall Saturday in typical fashion before a cheering throng of

Amidst all the hilarity, however, the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" carried a message about Americans turning their backs on hate and working together to make the world a better place.

Stewart and Colbert staged a mock battle, with Stewart supporting peace and sanity and Colbert promoting fear before a crowd that stretched nearly the length of the mall, most of the distance between the Capitol and the Washington Monument.

    I would agree with sending the Fox news guys into space if you agree that Keith Olberman, Rachael Maddow, Chris Mathews and that openly Progressive "Ed" guy on MSNBC goes with them. I haven't seen any Democrats wanting to make outsourcing illegal either. Quit being a tool. I'm tired of TV personalities telling me how to think. I'm perfectly capable of doing that on my own. Just the facts news. Just the facts.

    I am not from the South. I am from New York. I still think that Colbert and Stuart are two useful idiots. Amusing? yes. Intelligent and Insightful? No – not really.

    Here is a novel idea... How about instead of sending them to space, we leave them be and if someone doesn't like what they have to say – turn the TV off? Or watch Jersey Shore reruns instead? We still have that freedom in America, right? To turn off the TV if you don't like the program? Or the reason why you want to send them to space is because Fox gets more viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined? So the true liberal fascism is really being exposed... Free speech is only a good thing if a liberal agrees with what's being said. Otherwise – send them to space....
