Stewart and Colbert’s Rally about NothingBy
Democrats wanted to use Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s rally this past weekend to motivate young voters to participate in the midterm elections.
The crowd was mostly Dems. But it also contained some generally apathetic Comedy Central fans.
The three-hour rally consisted mainly of satire and comedy with humorous sketches and surprise musical guests including Kid Rock, Ozzy Osbourne, the O’Jays, Sheryl Crow, Tony Bennett and the former Cat Stevens, Yusuf Islam.
In one rare quasi-political stunt, Stewart gave a “Medal of Reasonableness” to Velma Hart, the now famous lady who told Obama that she was “exhausted” from having to defend him.
A host of left-leaning organizations were there in an apparent attempt to politicize the event.
