Million Moderates March
I don’t know about you, but my heart sank when I read about Jon Stewart’s Million Moderate March, planned for the Mall next weekend. My heart sank further when I learned that liberal groups, lacking any better ideas, have decided to take this endeavor seriously. It’s bad enough that the only way to drum up enthusiasm for a “Rally to Restore Sanity” is to make it into a television comedian’s joke. But it’s far worse that the “moderates” in attendance will have been bused in by Arianna Huffington and organized by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
What’s been described as a Million Moderates March will be nothing of the kind. HuffPo, the unions, fringe groups such as PETA and the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, and Tea Party-haters… are likely to represent a majority of the crowd. If Stewart’s going to break any kind of a record Saturday it will be for gathering together the largest group of people incapable of laughing at themselves. They’re going to want red meat, not apolitical, down-the-middle pablum.
