Jon Stewart: Get a Sitter Tomorrow for Rally to Restore Sanity

Jon Stewarts Rally to Restore Sanity
Regular families, Jon Stewart wants you

Jon Stewart wants you to ditch soccer practice or get a babysitter tomorrow so you can join him for The Rally to Restore Sanity, October 30 on the National Mall in D.C.

Stewart is calling on normal families, the people who are usually too busy for rallies, the ones with kids and schedules, the ones who don’t normally feel compelled to join a massive gathering of extreme views, anger, or finger pointing.

Tomorrow he’s asking you to bring your indoor voice. It’s a call for reasonableness, because as Stewart rightly says, it  shouldn’t just be the loudest people making off-the-wall clams (like Sarah Palin and her death panels) who get heard.

“Stop it. You are scaring the kids!!”, “Be Civil America” and “Team Sanity: I respectfully disagree with just about everything you said”. These are some of the signs attendees will be waving.

We have a sneak peak at the list of special guests, too:According to Rolling Stone, the rally starts with a performance from the Roots, then an unnamed comedian who will do stand up to get the crowd going. Stewart will come on stage at 1pm. Mavis Staples and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy will perform, followed by Sheryl Crow. Next come more unannounced speakers and performers.

If I didn’t live across the country, I’d get definitely get a sitter and be there.
