I was going to write a whole parody of the Jon Stewart rally, in the same parody style as the left wrote about the national Tea Party rallies. For example, I'd severely underestimate the crowd size, pick out a few crazy signs and then pretend they represented the whole of the rally, find a stupid statement or two made by rally speakers and then pretend those statements represented the views of the whole, find a stupid statement made by someone in the crowd and then pretend that statement is what the rally was REALLY all about, point out that most of the rally attendees were white, find a Nazi reference and pretend it represented some ominous threat of coming violence, etc, etc.
In other words, I was going to do what the left does and present propaganda as fact. The only difference was, I would be consciously engaging in satire, while the purpose of the left is to mislead intentionally. The left never even realizes they are satirizing themselves.
I WAS going to do that, but then I saw the following Reason.TV video, which said pretty much all that needed to be said. Enjoy:
I'm so glad sanity has been restored :-)
Here's a bonus video from the Rally To Restore Sanity. It's Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens) singing Peace Train. Groovy, man. Love that song. You may remember Yusuf Islam for calling for the death of author Salman Rushdie after Rushdie wrote his book Satanic Verses. Maybe this was REALLY the Rally To Restore Fatwas (psst - they're using code words). The drug and booze addled Ozzy Osbourne also sings Crazy Train at the above link, and the O'Jays sing Love Train. It's all about feelings, people.....as well as something about trains. Woo-woo.
Sanity has been FULLY restored :-)
