On Sanity

I caught most of the Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear on TV Saturday- I have the parts I missed on the DVR- and it looked to me like a success. Huge, huge crowd, the comedy was pretty funny, and the ultimate message was coherent and hard to disagree with. For a certain demographic- educated, irony-loving white liberals- it was like Woodstock.

The question can be asked- wouldn't a straight liberal rally have made more sense, especially since the exact same crowd would've gone along with and agreed with it? Perhaps. Would it have helped the Democrats on Tuesday? Not necessarily.
