And the cirque-du-so-left continues. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" looked nothing like a gathering of sane or rational Americans. Rather, the crowd appeared to be a hodgepodge of zany caricatures, all too strange to be fictional.
Feel free to glance at the pictures, found here.
The one positive result of the rally? We now have evidence that Jon Stewart's idea of "sanity" is personified as Code Pink, 9/11 Truthers,* and perpetually under-employed and over-drugged activists whose only purpose in life seems to be attending anti-establishment rallies.
Even the hosts themselves looked ridiculous, donning eccentric costumes and exhibiting flamboyant body language. Or perhaps the wacky outfits and crazy demeanor were simply intentional hyperbole, an exaggeration meant to expose the insanity of the conservatives in this country?
Who cares. They look like absolute shmucks. So their relevance continues to wane in the eyes of sensible Americans.
