Daily Show and Colbert Report nice enough to give me an anniversary present

If Beckapalooza wasn’t for you, the Daily Show and the Colbert Report have planned dueling rallies in Washington, D.C., for October 30th – the “Rally to Restore Sanity” (Daily Show) and “Keep Fear Alive”  (Colbert).

As part of his announcement, Jon Stewart laid out the compelling reasons for scheduling the rally on 10/30:  the show will be there the week before anyway; Sunday is Halloween, and they like to see their kids on that day; so basically Saturday was the time to do it.

But he failed to mention that it’s also my wedding anniversary!  That must be the real reason, although of course, they’ll argue that it’s all a big coincidence.

Sadly, I probably won’t be able to make it to the rallies.  I mean, it is my anniversary, of course.  And we’d have to line up a sitter.  And Halloween’s the next day, and that’d be unfair to the kids.  And it’s in D.C., which is a long way and a lot of money.

Some liberal I am…well, more like that 70-80 percenter…  Watch the full clip below to understand what I mean:
