Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have announced rallies to be held the 30th of October at the National Mall in Washington DC. The Stewart and Colbert rallies are in response to FOX News' Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Event.'
Stewart is calling for attendees to join his the 'Rally to Restore Sanity,' and Colbert is rallying the politically fed-up to his 'Million Moderate March' to 'Keep Fear Alive.' The parody Stewart and Colbert rallies make me wonder if there isn't something to be said of Shakespeare's observation that (paraphrased,) 'in a court of fools it is the jester who is a wise man.'
