Will the Colbert/Stewart rally be as fun if our moms show up?


Jon Stewart was on Oprah’s show yesterday, and, today, the first lady of daytime TV tweeted about the big October 30 rally. While she’s yet to order the house fraus of middle America to put down their copies of the latest book club selection and join the caravan of mini-vans to the nation’s capital, I suspect that could be on the horizon, and I wonder how it might change the dynamic on the mall, if we’re surrounded by people who don’t appreciate satire. On the positive side of the equation, if Oprah got behind this, it could not only draw a ton of new people to an event that’s already outpacing the Glenn Beck rally it was created in response to, but it could totally change the dynamic going into the November elections. I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that this could be a real game changer. Maybe we should all write to Oprah, and encourage her to attend. I’m sure she could convince John Travolta to fly her a a few hundred friends over from Chicago.

    That’s why it’s good that Colbert is also having his “Keep Fear Alive” rally there at the same time. We can all go over there to hide from our moms.

    I foresee lots of sex between moms and nerds.

    sex? There will be sex? Maybe I am interested. Still not willing to give up Halloween for this but I think it’s cool and will watch ya’ll on Cspan like I did for the gay pride rally when I lived in Maryland and my cat was sick.

    Oprah, if you’re reading this, can you ask the moms to bring food?

    Arianna Huffington has offered to bus anyone who wants to go from NYC to DC for the Stewart rally for free.
