I was in DC last weekend for a wedding, and although I'd totally forgotten about the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, I was quickly reminded that it was being held Saturday when I saw the massive lines of people trying to get into the Vienna Metro station to catch a ride down to the Mall. What a strange state of affairs these days when the two largest "political" gatherings of the year were staged by media misfits. First we had the conservative gathering in August organized by an ex-DJ/current cable TV Whack Job and called "Restoring Honor." Then this weekend we had the aforementioned Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" organized by two comedians best known for faux-news. Sheesh.
Ah well, I guess we just need to roll with it. Here's a montage of some of the signs at Saturday's rally, many of which are pretty funny:
