Will Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart hold a “Restoring Truthiness” rally? The Internet is full of people urging them to take on this project. The Restoring Truthiness rally would be held to counterbalance the rally held by Glenn Beck. It may occur on October 10.
Stephen Colbert says he is waiting for Jon Stewart to make the first move in announcing the rally, notes the Huffington Post. Stewart has been goading his audience by making coy announcements that he may soon announce news about the rally.
Colbert & Stewart: Patriots!
Are Colbert and Stewart the new breed of American patriots? It is a hoot that these two masters of comedy may possibly be staging an event that could draw attention to the farcical state of American politics. Lately it seems that truth is missing in political campaigns and smears and lies dominate.
Is it possible to “Restore Truthiness” to American politics? Who knows! But surely Colbert and Stewart will likely have a wild time amusing America if they decide to hold the rally. These two witty guys will put their own spin on the lunacy of the November 2010 election campaign season.
Truthiness Movement Donates $100 K to Charity
The Truthiness movement is already raising funds for charity. It has donated $100,000 to charities that work with educational organizations, notes Time. That amount of money was raised in just one day. Imagine the funding Colbert and Stewart could raise for charity if they held a rally and asked for donations to DonorsChoose.org.

Who Will the Truthiness Rally Pillory?
If the Truthiness Rally occurs, it is a sure bet that there will be some humor about the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, John Boehner, the Truthers and the Birthers and the other masterminds behind some of the ludicrous claims of the GOP and the Tea Party.
Who Could be Guest Speaker or Singer at Truthiness Rally?
It will be fascinating to see if this rally occurs. If so who will the guest speakers be? Perhaps speakers of interest would be: Michael Moore, Caroline Kennedy (or any of the politically active Kennedys), George Clooney, and perhaps Sheryl Crow singing her new anti Sarah Palin song and Green Day singing “American Idiot.”
