Rally Week The world is currently enjoying Rally Week – a completely uncoordinated set of rallies all happening around the same time and a great reflection on each state.
“The Rally to Restore Sanity” is Jon Stewart’s answer to the burgeoning idiocracy that is American media and its opinions. It’s the loudest call to make America sound normal again.
Contrastingly the rally in Gaza for Islamic Jihad is the loudest call made by Palestinian extremists to shoot themselves in the foot. Honestly, who’s going to support Palestine if you associate it with Jihad?
And finally, the icing on the cake - the march on the Vatican by victims of abuse from Catholic Priests. They’re coming from all around Europe and want the UN to make “systematic sexual abuse” a crime against humanity. What’s sad is that they have enough people for a march.
I wonder which one is going to end the biggest?
