Did anyone see the shows last night? I think they are going to do a "Truthiness Rally" a la Beck. At the end of the show, Jon alluded to a huge announcement. Then Stephen also jumped in, his announcement is going to be bigger and better than Jon's. Jon played the Martin Luther King "I have a Dream" clip as his moment of zen.
Stephen and Jon might be ready to hold a "Truthiness Rally"
Huffington Post did an article today on Stephen's show,
Stephen Colbert returned to "The Report" last night after a brief vacation and didn't waste any time before jumping into Glenn Beck's August 28 "Restoring Honor" rally. For starters, just how many people attended? A scientific estimate said 87,000, but conservative pundits have thrown around numbers ranging from "several hundred thousand" to "a million," probably because, as Colbert pointed out, "I don't think people at that rally are interested in science."
But enough about exaggerated numbers and geese. Colbert then got down to brass tacks and addressed the recent online petition to have him host a "Truthiness Rally" to counteract Beck's at the Lincoln Memorial.

There is definitely something brewing. I am not sure if they have hooked up with Ed, or if they are getting something together for NY City, but something is going to happen, and it's about time!
There was also a lot of talk about the President's campaign mode, and how he is in it now. Stephen's "Welcome home for the troops" show has Joe Biden tonight, I am feeling a change coming. If any two men can motivate a large part of the democratic base, I believe they can and will! I also don't believe we can't get out the base for this election cycle. I am tired of listening to the "OH NO, It's the end of the democrats" talking heads.
I refuse to believe this is anything more than a small, extremely vocal, uneducated, rascist loud mouth group, that is getting all of the air time.
I live in a red section of New Jersey, and even my customers seem confused as to why no one is giving our President a chance to clean up the colassal mess he was left.
SC Kitty was kind enough to find the links I was too lazy to look for...
and this from Third Beat...
I find it hard to believe, with all the drama for an "earth-changing announcement", that this is going to be a joke.
