The Best Signs Spotted At The ‘Rally To Restore Sanity’
In case you missed it on Saturday, Jon Stewart (the most influential man of 2010) held a “Rally To Restore Sanity” in Washington DC.
Stewart was accompanied by Steve Colbert (in character.) The two gents were able to mobilize about 215,000 people for the rally.
Stewart maintains that the fringe elements on both sides control too much of the conversation, and that a return to sanity (and rational behavior) is sorely needed for us to maintain a public discourse on politics.
The rally was originally a response to nutcase Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally and Al “I never turned down a chance for publicity” Sharpton’s Reclaim the Dream march, both held on August 28.
It is quite telling that Stewart and Colbert carry more credibility than Beck and Sharpton when it comes to politics in America today. Kind of makes Stewart’s point for him, doesn’t it?
At any rate, it seems that in recent years the good old fashioned sign has made quite a comeback at political gatherings of any sort. Of course, it never actually disappeared from the scene, but haven’t you noticed that everyone tries to one-up the next guy now?
Buzzfeed has compiled a massive list of the top 100 signs from the rally, but here are a few of my favorites that are delightful in their absurdity.
