The Rev. Sir Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A will host the March to Keep Fear Alive on October 30, along with his partner in crime, Jon Stewart, who will host the Rally to Restore Sanity. The whole thing is spoof-satire on Beck’s Restore America, which by the way was a major campaign of HGTV in conjunction with the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Go Figure.
Anyway, these guys are hysterical. I love what Tammy Erickson says about them in her book, What Next Gen X?
From Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert’s The Colbert Report…we gain some of our clearest voices of reason and dissent. It’s a voice you take to the workplace that gives you perspective and a way to sort through today’s complex challenges. Gen X’s humor could arguably be the single biggest thing that defines you culturally.
