(Newser) – Good news for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert: They finally have a permit for their Rally to Restore Sanity/March to Keep Fear Alive! The bad news: The National Parks service released the itinerary for the event, something Comedy Central has taken pains not to reveal. The whole thing is over at Aol News, but here are the highlights:

  • 10:00-12:57—Various warm-up acts.
  • 12:57—Festivities get under way with a pre-taped introduction from Stewart/Colbert
  • 1:05—Stewart welcomes the crowd
  • 1:20—Colbert makes his entrance, along with Sam Waterston and Don Novello
  • 1:40—Jeff Tweedy and Mavis Staples perform
  • 2:15—Sheryl Crow performs
  • 2:40—The show closes with a pre-taped Sanity and Fear awards segment
Again, for the full details, check the source.

In response to NDT's TLDR comment, others said: Firstly, let's gets the definition straight. What you're mainly referring to here is not satire per se, but political satire. Secondly, if you want to talk about the honest targets of political satire, the rabid right, such as Teabaggers and certain media personalities, are definitely worthy of ridicule and mockery. Oh, and the last few times I've watched the Daily Show, Obama, the Dems and The White House have come in for as much of a shellacking as as anyone else. (Nx-aka-DarkFrancis) ====================================================================== Spydiggity [Moderator] 5 hours ago in reply to Nx-aka-DarkFrancis a percentage of the "teabaggers" are worthy of ridicule. but at least, they, as a whole, are fed up with the bullshit going on in this country. i find it hilarious there are people out there that can still stick up for the career politicians that are selling us down the river to line their pockets with more cash. this rally to restore sanity is nothing more than a buncha of arrogant pricks that think they are better than the people that are taking a stand. like you have some ability to think rationally that they don't have. ever think that maybe the liberal side is just as ignorant? maybe even more so. clever excuses don't change reality, and that's what stewart is. a funny apologist for the left. don't get me wrong, i love the daily show; but this rally is fucking stupid. EDIT: Fact is the liberals don't know anything about the tea party movement. they basically just go around calling them teabaggers, rednecks, and racists and they don't realize there are a LOT of very smart, very motivated people in the movement calling for REAL change. (Spydiggity) ================================================================================ all I have to do is ask my white supremacist grandfather who happens to be a Tea bagger.... Making fun of Tea Baggers is not just an American left wing thing, it has gone global. (CenterIndependent)
