Follow-up to the previous rally post

For those who may be wondering what the “hidden agenda” behind the Rally to Restore Sanity was, Jon Stewart himself outlines it, and surprisingly, it has no liberal bias, nor does it make a political stance to activate our youth into tearing apart the foundations of democracy, or whatever else news outlets had made it out to be.

If that doesn’t work:

I hope that’s a message we all can rally around. (Although, I’m not familiar with many Mormons who would be Jay-Z fans, but I’m sure there are some out there.)

And, for more awesomeness, the top 100 best protest signs from the rally. (Careful: may contain profanity and/or silliness.)

    Wow, that speech was really good. I particularly liked the comment about the news media being our immune system. But what makes me worried is that the immune system doesn’t always attack the most dangerous threat, choosing to instead attack the thing that will bring it the most attention. That’s why I get all of my news from the BBC and Comedy Central.
