    exist. i never said that one was more important then the other. they are two discrete entities with different audiences, and different goals.
    and i dont have a problem if/when stewart makes fun/insults people like me... nobody's perfect, and satire is funny.

      No, I didn't.  So don't use it for me. Thanks.

      The bottom line is we agree to disagree.  There are no differences between the audience that Stewart/Colbert will draw and those out on the mall on 10.2.10 except two things - age (likely) and the desire to be "seen" at something celebrity run.

      I don't find the current state of the country funny at all.  Do you? If not, then I question why anyone would rather go out to undermine the seriousness of legitimate demands for the change we voted for by making fun of folks who go to marches to make such demands.  Why would you, for example, if you claim to be on the Left?

      •  satire is humorous way to be serious. (0+ / 0-)

        or maybe a serious way to be humorous.
        obviously, you're not the target audience for the 10.30.10 rally, and that's ok.
