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.

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!

It seems that going as far back as Nixon, every President has broadcast the same, if not similar, pledge. Read more of this post
