Robert Scheer and Ariana Huffington are not mocking the tea party movement


this a little bit similar to people mocking Obama, early on,
not taking him seriously and assuming there was no way he could beat a well-established Hillary Clinton
It is indeed bad timing for the Democrats considering how dire the midterm elections already look.

The Tea Party is comprised of a lot of people with their fingers in their ears while sanity floats by on the wind. The do not understand satire.

The only thing this counterpunch rally is is a self-fellating couple of hours for the left.

You're right, the extremists of the Tea Party crowd don't understand satire, but I don't think this rally is necessarily targeted at them to begin with (after all, keep in mind that they did point out when leading up to the announcment that politicians and media on the left have been just as guilty of crazy ranting and foaming and whatnot, too, they're not targeting one specific side or another here). It sounds like all they're doing is just hoping to gather some people who want a break from all the fearmongering and scare tactics and extremism on all sides for a few hours of fun and entertainment. If they're going to make fun of anybody, it'll likely be the media and the politicians, who are their usual targets anyway, and not so much your average, everyday citizen. I'm assuming they would agree that attacking the citizens themselves could end up hurting the situation more than help it.

Guess we'll see when the time comes .

what, and this entire thing isn't really just some big public commercial for comedy central?

liked lewis black's set at the rally? check out his special on comedy central, this wednesday, right before an all new south park!


it's always about the cash.

Oprah sprinkled Mr. Stewart with her magic dust today on her show so you can add a million soccer moms to the 93,000 facebook college kids.

Especially after she appears on the Daily Show sometime soon.

I loved that line, that was excellent. His testimony before Congress last week was great, too .

Agreed. Sarkozy is an asshole, and Carla doesn´t help much. Also the EU is really racist. Just google Frontex.

RICHMOND, Va. — "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart has won some high-level backing for his "Rally to Restore Sanity" next month in Washington: President Barack Obama.

Stewart says the Oct. 30 rally is for people who think the loudest voices shouldn't be the only ones that get heard.

Obama raised the subject of the rally during a round-table Wednesday with residents of Richmond, Va.

Obama said he was "amused" by Stewart's rally and that it's for people who expect some common sense and courtesy in their daily interactions.

The president said that having those voices lifted up is, as he put it, "really important."
