(Newser) – Move over, Glenn Beck—Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have Washington DC rallies of their own planned. Stewart announced the "Rally to Restore Sanity" on the Daily Show, aimed at people who think neither Barack Obama nor George W. Bush is Hitler. The "Million Moderate March" on the National Mall, scheduled for October 30, will "take it down a notch for America," Stewart says.

"Now is not the time to take it down a notch. Now is the time for all good men to freak out for freedom!" countered Stephen Collbert, who plans a rally of his own the same day, the "March to Keep Fear Alive." Book your room now "or your children will turn gay," the Colbert Nation host warned his audience. Click here for more on Jon Stewart and here for more on Stephen Colbert.
