"Got Competence?"

10.30.10 Washington DC. On the Mall.

Where will you be on October 30th? A friend of mine from California just spent frequent flyer miles to be in Washington, DC for Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity. I'm hoping to be there, too.

Jon Stewart announced the Rally at the beginning of The Daily Show on Thursday. Stephen Colbert followed with his announcement of the March to Keep Fear Alive scheduled for the same time at the same place. (The announcement starts about 3:55 into The Colbert Report video.)

Entertaining though I'm sure Stephen Colbert's march will be, I'm much more in tune with restoring sanity in our nation. And doing it with laughter is enough to make the 400 mile trip worthwhile. If only for the opportunity to carry one of the signs they promise to provide. "Got Competence?" is my fave, but I'm also fond of "I disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler."

Good for you! I'd dearly love to attend, but can't swing it.

Actually, not just "good for you", but thank you.

I really wish I could attend, however a trip to KC for a certain wedding makes a second trip in October pretty much impossible. I hope you manage to go and have a great time.

It looks like it'll be fanastic. I hope you have a great time.

Here's another "wish I could go, have fun for me" comment. I thought Stewart's signs were pretty funny.

If we end up going, we should find each other for lunch (ha :)

Sounds good to me. (It's why Ghod created cell phones.) Can you bring the cupcakes?

We're not sure how we're going to swing it, but agrathea and I are talking very seriously about going.

Yep, comedians are purposefully having weird marches in DC.

Dave will be at WFC, but hmmmm. This is intriguing enough to seriously do it, but I really cannot afford to take more time off. Besides, I have a prior (school related) leadership council thingie on that day.
Oh POO.
So be dangerous, and march for all of us poor sane(?) people!
