So, who should go to this rally? Here are Stewart's words from last Thursday night's show:
"You may be asking yourself, right now, sitting at home, but am I the right type of person to go to this rally. The fact that you would even stop to ask yourself that question, as opposed to just, let's say, jumping up, grabbing the nearest stack of burnable holy books, strapping on a diaper and just pointing your car toward D.C. — that means I think you might just be right for it."
Stewart's new book, Earth (the Book): A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race, was just released on Tuesday - it's "Coming Soon" in the catalog and you can place a hold on it today. While you wait, try some of our, perhaps less humorous, but interesting books on the role of the media in politics and American lives - a few of which are listed below.
And, don't forget Stewart's arch-nemesis, Stephen Colbert, is having his counter-rally on the exact same day, at the same time and place: the March to Keep Fear Alive.
