    If this is true, it's great! :D

    Man, I hope this outdraws Beck and the Tea Party by a factor of 10 and shows America that there are still a lot of sane people out there.

    LOL, why would it? It ain't like their fans get off their asses and do stuff, no, they post on message boards nodding their heads in smugness think how witty they are that people might think they are somehow relevant because they agree with some comedians.

    If you haters need to win, try elsewhere.

    Yes! They had been hinting at this for a while now! I hope it really happens!

    It would be cool if this wasn't a response to Beck's rally. I would be pleasantly surprised if they could pull 87,000 college kids to Washington for this considering school is in session.

    Hello, pot? The kettle's holding on line two for you.

    It is rich to end your spit-filled post by calling us "haters".

    Self-awareness isn't one of your strong suits, is it Shivetya?

    I think Colbert's audience was responsible for funding an Olympic sport and last time I checked, there is a piece of exercise equipment and a bridge named after Colbert. Don't forget that the Daily Show is one of the most accurate news shows on tv, and it's actually funny.

    Who is more relevant? The talking head on a TV channel who gets paid millions of dollars to spin and lie to the public, or the other talking head on a TV channel, who also is well paid, to laugh at the spin and lies?

    I was at a friends' house when it was announced. Within minutes, we had all made plans to drive down to DC for the rally. The next morning, I woke up, and my friends' dad had texted her, they are flying into DC from California for the rally. On Reddit, where this idea was first floated, users have donated over $200,000 to teachers, in support of this cause.

    I'd be highly surprised if it isn't larger than Glenn Beck's parade.

    I live within driving distance of DC and see no reason why my car wouldn't be carrying 6 people...

    Haters? Um...have you been paying attention this entire election cycle? The other side has been all about hate, divisiveness and anger. I'm not sure where you're getting that.

    And yeah, we all know Colbert and Stewart don't have any fans. Nobody's gonna wanna participate in this thing. ;)

    No denying they have lots of fans, but will they come to Washington? It will be interesting to see.

    Generally they are one in the same. They both have the same message, but Stewart takes the direct approach, Colbert communicates it through satire.

    It's a real rally to make a real point.

    Politicians from both sides, and extreme political nutnjibs from both sides, are ripping the country apart, aided kand abetted by criminally biased media and deceitful lying media celebrities in it for their own gain.
