Comedy Central Hits the Road and Comes to DC

The Countdown to Sanity and/or Fear Rally hits its 3 day mark today, as Comedy Central prepares for this "big tailgate disguised as a rally." So is this about politics or is it just part of a Comedy Central stunt? Opinions go both ways.

Yesterday, WUSA9's reporter Lindsey Mastis had the chance to talk to Larry Wilmore, one of the Daily Show's correspondents at the Shakespeare Theatre in Chinatown. The Shakespeare Theatre is hosting Comedy Central this week and audience members were lining up outside early yesterday afternoon for the taping of the Daily Show. Tonight's special guest is President Barack Obama.

The rally will be held Saturday, October 30, 2010, from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m on the National Mall. There are currently 10,024 planning on attending the "Rally to Restore Sanity" on the Facebook event page alone. To follow the Daily Show rally on twitter use the hashtag #Rally4Sanity.

The following tweet shows the Rally for Sanity is expecting to see a lot of out-of-towners:

@Rally4Sanity: Remember, unlike most malls, there are no Talbots at the National Mall. Please pack accordingly. #Rally4Sanity
