Read this: The Jon Stewart rally analyzed
Here's the thing about the Oct. 30 Jon Stewart rally: Sure, it's satirizing rallies like Glenn Beck's, notes Paul Farhi -- but it's also an awful lot like a Glenn Beck rally, with its claim on high-minded non-partisan themes counterbalanced by superstar partisan guests. Not to mention (reports Sandhya Somashekhar) all the liberal groups jumping on the bandwagon, no tongue in cheek. Carlos Lozado becomes the latest fan to beg Stewart to call the whole thing off, or risk losing his funny-guy cred: "America doesn't need another Al Franken." Oh, and apropos of nothing? Are you a member of the new cultural elite?
