I actually take Stewart and Colbert very seriously.  They are the one voice of reason disguised as “fake news” whose purpose is to expose the fake news of Fox and its ilk that constantly bombards our airwaves.  And since FOX paid commentators are headed for presidential bids, this abuse of journalism needs, more than ever, to be exposed for what it is. This is the genius of Comedy Central
Don’t kid yourself, those who are attending this rally know full well that this is more than just a construct, it’s a shout-out that Beck, Hannity, O’Reilly, Limbaugh, and all of Fox and the right wing punditry are full of it and we are going to express our dissatisfaction at the voting booth.  It’s high time they stopped dominating the political discourse and this is one great way to show we’re not buying it.
