Beltway Happenings  ...1 of 3 >   
Oct. 30, 2010--The "Rally to Restore Sanity" and "March to Keep Fear Alive" headlined by the Daily Show's Jon Stewart and by Stephen Colbert brought huge crowds and a hodgepodge of messages to the National Mall just a few days before Election Day.  According to the Rally to Restore Sanity website, "Ours is a rally for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs) — not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority.  If we had to sum up the political view of our participants in a single sentence… we couldn’t.  That’s sort of the point."
