My guess is that the money donated by this crowd to restore the Mall will be less than what it will take to clean up the mess they leave behind.

Eliot,

Will you take it down a notch... for America?

Rather silly kind of rally. Makes me feel like they are mocking the country. If it isnt a political rally, then why at the national mall ? ? ?

At least some of the money will go to good causes.

"Real patriots can handle a difference in opinion"
Amen. But I guarantee those on the right think it's those on the left that can't handle a difference of opinion, with the reverse being just as true as well. Agree to disagree, but somewhere down the line someone has to make a choice, and sometimes that choice isn't going to be supported by all.

I guess the "progressives" don't like it when the sheeple get engaged. They just want us to be passive and let them lead us to their vision of America.

They say:
Relax. (those who disagree are just fearmongering)
Don't get involved (if you are conservative).
Don't be passionate. (if you disagree with us)
Don't think! (We will do that for you)
Oh and Stop the dangerous hate speech!!!!

Because it so dangerous, hateful, and RACIST to not agree with their point of view.


These people are just woried that "sanity" might just be restored.

For the sake of this nation ... we need the sheeple to get engaged and educate themselves.

We NEED a backlash against the liberal progressive policies that are proven failures in every place and time they have been tried.

Be civil and be kind. There is NO place for violence against those with different ideas.

But do not back down from learning correct principles and demanding theat we be governed by them.

Captain, I must agree.

I am puzzled by the members of the entertainment world who seem to feel that their opinion on subjects political is of any greater worth than the average human being.

There are a few on both the left and right who make their living in the political realm who at least are familiar with the issues at hand and it is up to me to decide who has the most convincing argument.

But for the most part, the information to be gleaned from most actors and athletes is about as valuable as dryer lint. And speaking of fluff, most comedians fall in this category, attempting to sway voters with jokes instead of intelligent conversation.

Most illogical, Captain!

Did anyone watch any of the rally?

If you did, WITHOUT POLITICAL BLINDERS, you probably would have agreed with virtually everything said from the stage.

Lets see. Jon Stewart does not lean right so anything he says is bologna?

The message was a good and patriotic.

The comments here prove that we need to hear the message from the rally and learn.

He blasted right and left. And we should be blasting RIGHT AND LEFT for what they are doing to our country.

Gotta agree, JoeBlow. The rally contained none of the things the people complaining about it are saying. It wasn't even about that. It was about all being Americans who basically get along even if we disagree about some things. But I guess getting along is now bad and being as divisive as possible is now righteous and good.

Is this the same Jon Stewart that referred to our President, the president of the free world, as "DUDE?" Dude who stole my car. Dude pass me the bong. Dude that must have been some rally.

KM, and your point is?

My response to that is BIG DEAL.

If that is what you took from the interview, you may have missed something.

I saw Reasonable questions, civil dialogue and a discussion of a couple of real issues. Certainly not a patsy interview.

Stewarts point is that we can civilly disagree. We can have honest discussions.
