Additional details about Jon Stewart's announcement can be found at the website www.rallytorestoresanity.com .
On the website Jon provided the following glimpse into what the rally will bring:
"Think of our event as Woodstock, but with the nudity and drugs replaced by respectful disagreement; the Million Man March, only a lot smaller, and a bit less of a sausage fest; or the Gathering of the Juggalos, but instead of throwing our feces at Tila Tequila, we'll be actively *not* throwing our feces at Tila Tequila. Join us in the shadow of the Washington Monument. And bring your indoor voice. Or don't. If you'd rather stay home, go to work, or drive your kids to soccer practice... Actually, please come anyway. Ask the sitter if she can stay a few extra hours, just this once. We'll make it worth your while."
Immediately after Jon's show Stephen Colbert followed with his faux right-wing persona to announce his own march on the National Mall also on October 30, 2010 the "March to Keep Fear Alive".

On the website Stephen provided the following glimpse into what the rally will bring:
"America, the Greatest Country God ever gave Man, was built on three bedrock principles: Freedom. Liberty. And Fear -- that someone might take our Freedom and Liberty. But now, there are dark, optimistic forces trying to take away our Fear -- forces with salt and pepper hair and way more Emmys than they need. They want to replace our Fear with reason. But never forget -- "Reason" is just one letter away from "Treason." Coincidence? Reasonable people would say it is, but America can't afford to take that chance."
Few additional details were offered but Jon Stewart said it would be "two or three hours one saturday for some nice people to get together for some fun."
