This past Saturday, more than 200,000 people descended on the National Mall for a rally about restoring sanity, or poking fun of those trying to rev up fear. (And thousands more watched from home or got stuck trying to get there).
I was there–sort of–as comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert led Comedy Central’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, a satiric counterprotest to the Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin rally a few weeks ago. I walked many blocks and got as far as the porta-johns and couldn’t see or hear anything because of the huge masses of people. Still, it was entertaining.
