Bill Maher Takes On Jon Stewart's Rally To Restore Sanity

Filed under: Jon StewartPolitikStephen Colbert

Bill Maher took on Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's Rally To Restore Sanity on his show Real Time with Bill Maher and he had some interesting things to say.

Even though he's friends with the two guys, Bill had a bone to pick with them, saying that if they're going to organize a rally, they should have a "point," adding that the sanity isn't equally distributed on both the Left and Right sides.

He continued, saying:

"Keith Olbermann is right when he says he's not the equivalent of Glenn Beck. One reports facts the other one is very close to playing with his poop."

Ha!

Rally To Restore Sanity Draws Over 200,000 People To D.C.!!

Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity and Stephen Colbert's March to Keep Fear Alive drew almost 250,000 people to the National Mall in Washington D.C. on Saturday.

Appearing live on Comedy Central and on satellite broadcasts in 20 different cities, such as in Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, and Boise, the three hour rally mostly consisted of satire and comedy with humorous sketches and surprise musical guests such as Kid Rock, Ozzy Osbourne, The Roots, Sheryl Crow, Tony Bennett, and Yusuf Islan, the former Cat Stevens.

However, it took a serious turn in the end when Jon Stewart made a speech saying these are "hard times, not end times."

He added:

"This was not a rally to ridicule people of faith or people of activism, or look down our noses at the heartland or passionate argument, or to suggest that times are not difficult and we have nothing to fear. They are and we do.

The image of Americans that is reflected back to us by our political and media process is false. [Americans hear] how fragile our country is, on the brink of catastrophe, torn by polarizing hate, and how it's a shame that we can't work together to get things done. The truth is, we do. We work together to get things done every damn day. The only place we don't is here or on cable TV."

Wow.

Did U go to the rally??

Jon Stewart's Rally To Restore Sanity Coming To Los Angeles…Via Satellite

Filed under: Jon StewartPolitikStephen ColbertEvents

jon stewarts rally to restore sanity coming to los angeles via satellite

Those of us in Los Angeles who were seriously considering making the cross-country trip to Washington D.C. will now only have to travel downtown…a slightly more cost effective journey.

Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity will be broadcast at the Levitt Pavilion at MacArthur Park in downtown L.A. via satellite on Oct. 30.

The organizers of the Los Angeles version of the event, Amy Lee and Ashley Wright, are currently looking to secure comedians and entertainers for the three-hour rally. Here's what Lee had to say about it:

"We want Los Angeles to come out and represent as strongly as possible. We are looking for personalities — anybody who wants to come out and represent sanity in Los Angeles."

The Rally to Restore Sanity will be countered by Stephen Colbert's March to Keep Fear Alive. Sounds HIGHlarious!

Looks like there are many other satellite rallies in the works as well, in locations that include Seattle and Chicago.

We're SO pumped!

Will U be attending the rally or one of the satellite rallies?
