Comedy Central will stage the Mother of All Marketing Stunts on the Mall here in Washington -- oh wait, Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck already did that.

I am glad Beck is Mormon and does not belong to my church.. but even so you have to laugh at some of the things he says..or sometimes it makes you want to cry.. but then racists are always going to cause both of those emotions I think
Here is one of his funnier quotes..."I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. ... No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out. Is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus -- band -- Do, and I've lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, 'Yeah, I'd kill Michael Moore,' and then I'd see the little band: What Would Jesus Do? And then I'd realize, 'Oh, you wouldn't kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn't choke him to death.' And you know, well, I'm not sure."

Thanks, Dandelion. Wish I could be there. Beck belongs in an asylum, but FAKE news is paying him the big bucks to show us how nuts he is.

ThankX for the "TEASE" Sheryl. WINK!! I can't imagine anyone on your thread not wanting too! {Or any sane person}. Unfortunately we are mostly in the same boat~ sinking more and more each day !!! At this point I am grateful I'm not on a sinking raft! I know of many that may be in that situation soon.

Thankx Sheryl...noted and appreciated!

Now Sephen...don't rub in the fact you have a Luxury Liner! WINK!

Barbara K, I LOVE YOU. I'V BEEN SAYING BECK SHOULD BE IN A PADDED CELL for years!...What I don't understand is how his padded cell is deep in THOU$AND DOLLAR BILLS. Those are hard to come by!

Peace~Love~ and maybe I'll buy a lottery ticket!

Sounds like a hoot, guys, but I'm afraid it's all beyond me! Here in UK we have our own buffoons, mostly in the Houses of Parliament!

Some Liberal company needs to step up and bus us all in. That's what the Tea Party folks would do. I'm curious to see if Colbert and Stewart treat this seriously or just have fun with it. Either way it oughta be good

You cannot currently send a star to Dandelion because you have done so within the last week.

If you all really want to be there, things can be arranged. ORGANIZE! Make this about more then comedy, make it a real rally of real people expressing dire concerns. If you can walk, talk and use a computer then you can organize a community effort. Why do you allow only the extremists to show their faces and express their ideas? The fires of hate, bigotry and fear are alive and growing, while moderates find reasons and excuses for not doing some thing to show up when their own self interest is on the line. This country is sliding away before us and we sit and watch.

We've got 6 weeks to get there.... I'm in northern AZ but will try to plot a course to be there... Kit is right. If the tea party can get there, why not us. Let's get creative and see if we can pool a way there.
