Yes, The Daily Show is just a fake news show. And no, I’m not going to the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear. I live close enough just to hop on the Metro and go. But I’m not the rallying type, for the most part. Might watch it online, though.

The thing I’m wondering, though, is if this will have any effect on the elections next week. Yes, the Huffington Post is providing buses. But it is more Oprah’s (go to 7:57) support (her interview with him) that I find interesting.
I tend to think tat Stewart is right. There are a lot of people who are really sick of the cowardly, win-at-all-costs mentality that prevails in Washington—which leads to the kind of idiocy we’ve seen in the last two years.
I don’t really think that the rally will do anything for a specific electoral district. But I do think it might affect turnout. That can only benefit the Democrats.
