I had a lot of thoughts about the “Rally to Restore Sanity”, but before I could put them down on paper, Greg Gutfeld from Red Eye wrote something better…
So the real title of the event shouldn’t have been “The Rally to Restore Sanity,” but “The Rally to Ignore Insanity.”
Because, that was the message. The teapartiers are reacting to alarming stuff: the insane spending, the bottomless deficit, weird appointments, political arrogance -it’s real anxiety over real trouble for future offspring.
Stewart’s rally says, “Ignore that. Check out Cat Stevens!” With a load of flashy entertainment and outsized personalities – they are the band playing on the TItanic – enjoying the applause as we see the shadow of the iceberg.
There’s a reason he’s on TV and I am not.
