Stewart and Colbert Kicked Ass in Washington National Mall Today

Due to my overseas trip, I wasn’t able to attend the rally, but I monitored the event from satellite dish here in Tehran with friends via various channels. From the TV and various reports sent to me by friends on the foot there, it looks like there were about 250,000 people attended the Rally.

I think both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert did a great job to unite the American people. However, when I turned the channel to Fox News, all they were talking about was the color of people that were there…and how many of which………How pathetic that they want to “undo” the commaraderie that was created today.

Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington, D.C. Gone Global

The Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” has found a foothold internationally, and is sparking similar minded events from Paris to Mt. Everest, reports the Christian Science Monitor.

Stewart’s rally, which will be held on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., October 30 is an attempt to try to turn the temperature down on America’s political rhetoric, which has become dangerously overheated in the eyes of the comedian. The appeal to our better angels has struck a cord with a lot of disaffected citizens who feel like their voices aren’t being heard above the din.

It looks like everyone all over the world is getting excited over this rally. I have been randomly seeing the buzz about it on several online French and Spanish media as well. Read more of this post

The Awesome Jon Stewart on our “Dependency on Foreign Oil”

This is one of the best segment of the Daily Show I’ve  seen – funny, genius, and well put!

With our president promising a plan to move America toward a non-petroleum based future, Jon Stewart took the time to give a little history lesson on the show last night. As he pointed out, Obama is certainly not the first President to come on TV and talk about a plan for energy-independence. No, no. It seems that going as far back as Nixon, every President has broadcast the same, if not similar, pledge. Read more of this post

Jon Stewart reveals DC Rally Location

Jon Stewart has revealed the location for his upcoming “Rally to Restore Sanity”on Oct 30th in Washington.

Stewart announced on an edition of The Daily Show last week that the October 30 political gathering will take place on the east end of Washington DC’s National Mall.

The National Mall is the site where Dr Martin Luther King Jr delivered his famous ‘I Have A Dream’ speech in 1963.

The comedian joked about the historic nature of the location by saying: “As far as we know, no huge iconic event has ever taken place there.”

He continued: “The National Mall is an incredible gathering place for all Americans and in desperate need of upkeep and repair, especially after all of us rally on it.” Read more of this post

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will be dueling rallies in Washington D.C. during Oct. 25-28, in an apparent attempt to poke fun at serious tone of political discourse in America and play on Glenn Beck, who hosted a highly-publicized “Restoring Honor” rally in D.C. less than three weeks ago.

Stewart Tackles Arizona Immigration Law via McCain

Our best of  The Daily show this week went to their Thursday night segment when Jon Stewart opened the show riffing on everyone’s favorite immigration law, and mocking John McCain and Fox News in the process.

Check out the clip and judge it for yourself. It is typical of McCain speaks on both sides of his mouth, he will do whatever it takes to win including selling his soul. His classic move was when he cynically picked Sarah Palin as his running mate, thinking he would garner women voters. That didn’t work too well. Well, it worked for her in the end.

Anyway, in my opinion, we should stop blaming the illegal immigrants or any other group that takes American jobs away or changes the cultural landscapes of this great country. Read more of this post

The Ongoing Blaming Game

The best of The Daily show for this week was their Tuesday night segment when Jon Stewart had some fun at the expense of “Fox & Friends” who much to his delight, apparently watches his show.

Stewart pointed out that blaming a previous administration is nothing new, but often there are limitations as to how long into one’s presidency it can be done. Something that apparently Republicans ignored during Bush administration, as they blamed Clinton over and over again.

Bringing the hypocrisy full circle, Stewart played a clip from “Fox and Friends” from just two weeks ago where they blamed Clinton policies for the oil spills, prompting Stewart to ask, “Do you realize that this sh-t is being broadcast?” Read more of this post
