Thoughts on the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear

As I watched Jon Stewart give his pitch at the end of the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, I realized his words were the most intelligent thing I’d heard coming out of Washington, D.C. in years, no decades. We do all work together and compromise to get things done daily, so why don’t the people we elect to represent us do the same thing? Have they forgotten they represent us and not their parties? We’ve voted for these people to be our leaders, not blind followers of party lines.
            The irony of the situation is the voice of reason and sanity came from a comedian just visiting Washington, D.C., not an elected official. The cherry dotting the “i” in this ironic rally point is the event was staged by and aired on Comedy Central, not CSPAN. It wasn’t promoted by the Republican or Democratic parties. Maybe we should start a Comedy Central party, and Jon Stewart could be the first presidential candidate with the sarcastic Steven Colbert as his running mate?
