I think it would be fun but I dont like these "comedians" who now act like theyre politically smart. I wonder how much Stewart really knows and how much of it is taught to him and written down for him. I remember him from MTV and that sure doesnt make me scream political analyst but unfortunately some kids arent smart enough to do the same and think he is the be all/end all.
but I guarantee its going to be a good laugh with him and Colbert going back and forth..
WTOP is the place to check. I think Metro is running normally, but it's going to be busySarge, I think we will be heading up 95, then taking the Metro in. You think that will be all right? Anything we need to avoid there?

Holy crap! Good luck. Don't overdo itI'm missing the rally because I'm running the aforementioned marathon.
That's the plan anyway.
To add to what Sarge had to say, I think that you should be OK as long as you’re not driving and can find a parking spot at the metro station. There will be some road closures and parking restrictions throughout the area over the weekend, but the marathon and rally activities won’t overlap. (Nor will their port-a-potties, if you’ve been following that story.) By taking the metro, you’ll be able to avoid all of the nuisances associated with traffic restrictions. And remember, when riding the metro escalators, stand on the right and pass on the left.WTOP is the place to check. I think Metro is running normally, but it's going to be busy
I will be there for the marathon, I have several friends running so I am gonna go down to take photos. I was gonna go down Saturday to take my friends around the mall, but I was reminded of the rally the other day. I am still gonna go, because attendance at this event is not going to create any congestion. All 12 people who are gonna show up are just a drop in the bucket on any normal DC afternoon! LOL!!!
I will say this, I have seen Stewart have his feet held to the fire a few times. He is up to date when it comes to politics. He is no slouch. He just appeals to his constituency, 20 somethings. I don't blame the man for that. He will never be taken seriously as a real news man because he doesn't want to. I would wager if he wanted the 8pm time slot to replace Sanchez over at CNN, he could have it.
have a good time El! you know...when Stewart's writers were on strike...he was rather pedestrian.
anywho...I was there when the Viet Nam memorial was dedicated. Very, very eerie day. blustery Fall afternoon.....chilly......Chariots of Fire theme blaring over a speaker system in an end-less loop....vet motorcycle cavalcade.....empty sidewalks......people touching a wall to be transported.
El...your choice how you spend your free time! Can't fault anyone for that!Don't get me wrong, I don't watch Stewart's show nor do I plan to go to the Mall to see him or even Colbert, who I do not care for in the least. I am just going with some friends from out of town to go see the Mall.
As far as the Viet Nam Memorial, it moves me every time. I remember the first time I saw it, I was blown away. It is grand!
bingo!!!!!!does anyone else find it funny that its just being called "rally to restore sanity" when the real title is "rally to restore sanity/and or fear"
people in my opinion try to make stewart out to be this political figure when hes still just a comedian but found a niche to make money off of.
