Jon Stewart sincerely address the Rally for Sanity and/or Fear

Holy Hemiola!  There’s a $%$#load of people on the National Mall.  Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are throwing a Rally for Sanity and/or Fear.

Right now, they are debating each other on stage.  Sheryl Crow just performed.  And the mall looks PACKED.

You can follow the Rally at Comedy Central and/or liveblog with us.

  1. “We are not living in the end times”

  2. “If we amplify everything, we hear nothing”

  3. I’m still upset that they cut off Cat Stevens, though…. 😦

  4. It sounds fun.

  5. “We hear every damn day about how fragile our country is”
    “We work together to get things done every damn day”

  6. Awwww, it’s over??? There are so many people on the mall. Why not just stay and party?

  7. I’ve been watching. The music was pretty good, but the rest has been lame. Embarrassingly lame. I don’t think the attempt to be funny-while-quasi-serious is working in this setting.

    Jon pulls that off well on the set. Here, not so much.

    • I think as he says, the point was to get people to show up. There needs to be a demonstration that people are tired of the bullshit.

      • Yeah, that part worked. I’m just not sure the whole ironic poking thing played well in that particular setting.

    • It worked a lot better from the Comedy Central feed. The sound “popped” more. But, cSpan had better crowd shots.

  8. I’ll take you there. Oooowee!

  9. Um, we should probably bump Wonk’s post to the top of the page. How do I do that, Kbird?

  10. Fanaticism consists in redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim. – George Santayana

  11. Loved Tony Bennett at the end & everyone singing “I’ll take you there.” Rally gets a thumbs up from me.

    • He pumped up the crowd at AT&T Park before Game One of the World Series by singing “I left my heart in San Francisco.”

      During the seventh inning stretch he sang “America the Beautiful.”

  12. As an Australian I find the US political system fascinating. The rally got good coverage here and it looked like a lot of fun. You can read my take on it here at http://danieljames.com.au/?p=1021
