Stewart v. Colbert

David v. Goliath. The Crips v. The Bloods. Yankees v. Red Sox. Democrats v. Republicans. Coke v. Pepsi. These all have one thing in common… they’re rivals. Why not add Stewart v. Colbert to the list?

Jon Stewart made his big announcement on The Daily Show Thursday night, to distill the anger that polluted the air from the 15-to-20-percenters, and stand up for the majority. His campaign “The Rally to Restore Sanity,” will take place on Saturday October 30, 2010, on the steps of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. It’s an attempt to restore reasonableness…um, if that’s even a word. His message is pretty simple: Take it down a notch… for America.

Stephen Colbert, however, made a counter-announcement on his show, “The Colbert Report,” (the “t” is silent on both words) on the “March to Keep Fear Alive,” also taking place in the nation’s capital on the same day as Stewart’s rally. Rather than taking it down a notch, Colbert vowed to “notch it up a skoach (sic).” He added that the government wants you to be scared and are trying to kill you. “‘Reason’ is just one letter away from ‘treason’,” Colbert said.

Why does it have to be an even-numbered year?
