Is Jon Stewart Good for the GOP?

David Corn is right. Stewarts and Colberts self-promotion will only benefit themselves.

Happy to hear that news-I'm definitely going to be watching . Look forward to the signs people make and the costumes that people will be sporting as well!

I really hope positive things result from this idea, that the intent extends well beyond the rallies themselves. But even if it turns out to be nothing more than a few hours of quiet, calm fun in a year full of chaos and tragedy, that in and of itself is worth cheering, too.

...

So, who's watching this right now ? Those who are, thoughts?

I'm enjoying it. And the crowd is massive.

Seems like this should be in ZS. But just saw the "train wars" with Cat Stevens 'Peace Train' being interrupted by Colbert and Ozzy doing 'Crazy Train' and back and forth. Then they both leave and the Ojays come out and do 'Love Train' .

That. Was. Awesome. And hilarious. Brilliant idea (also, speaking of music, I officially have to hear more from the Roots and John Legend. Their opening warm-up performances were incredible).

I'm really having fun watching this so far .

I saw about the last 20 minutes of it.

I think many on the West Coast may have missed it.

From the small part I saw, Stewart's closing remarks were more on the reasonable side. It could have been worse.

I'm on C-Span now, it will be interesting to see how the callers evaluate it?

Time Warner Cable had the west coast scheduled airing at 12-3. Unfortunately, they didn't list it correctly, because Scrubs came on at 12, so I didn't get to tape it. Luckily I woke up in time to watch it live on TV & online.

I watched the whole thing from 9am - Noon. Watched C-span for the calls and feedback.
It was fantastic. Loved all the funny signs from I HAVE BED BUGS to DEATH TO NOBODY and my favorites so far: GOD HATES SIGNS and BIRTHERS FOR HAWAII STATEHOOD. hahahah!!

Michael Franti and Spearhead would have been a better opener IMO. He connects with the crowd and his ENERGY is like a young Bono crowd surfing and all!

Also, I really loved Jon's closing remarks. It moved me, he was dead serious. My favorite quote from him

"If we amplify everything we hear nothing."

I went down there- it was absolutely packed and hard to move around. I couldn't get within 2 blocks of the stage. Lots of funny signs mocking Tea Party sign misspellings.

On the Ground at the Stewart/Colbert Rally | The Blaze

I interviewed a number of different people at the rally, asking each of them where they were from and why they came to DC for the rally. This is how the majority of those conversations played out:

Q: So what brings you to Washington today?
A: The rally!
Q: Well, duh. But why are you at today’s rally?
A: To restore sanity!
Q: But what does that mean? What message are you specifically hoping to send by being here today?
A: People need to stop acting crazy.
Q: Who is acting ‘crazy’?
A: Everyone! People need to stop acting crazy.


And the fact that multiple people showed up with pictures of Republicans with Hitler mustaches is just rich. Real Einsteins, these.
