On Thursday, Oct. 28th I will be taking off for Washington, DC, to attend the joint rally of Jon Stewart (who I'm going to marry) and Stephen Colbert! It will be held in the shadow of the Washington Monument, and I hope that it will get as many attendees as Glen Beck's dumb rally did. Although Stewart and Colbert are very definitely satirists and not true politicians, it's obvious that this rally is going to have some political implications - not the least of which will be that American partisan politics are arguably as much of a farce as the comedians' shows are. I'm very excited to see how many people realize that the current political race has become completely ridiculous and that we need a humorist to inject some reason into the political atmosphere.
Also: Washington, DC, is a super cool place and I haven't been there in a long long time. Let's hope we can find some delicious Thai or Korean food while we're there!
