That is a hilarious idea. What's Glenn Beck's response going to be?

Colbert has already published Glen Beck's likely answer under the link that reads "Don't Click Here"! Or here's Charlie Brooker's analysis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_depaSOa4I

Check out Stephen Colbert's response, I think it's an accurate representation of the Beckers :P

Would any atheists like to organize a restore sanity day in London? Perhaps we can have cake and orange juice. And celebrate our sanity in a jovial way. I think this would be a better day out than getting angry at silly men with pointed hats and dresses.

So happy about this! Might be the best reason to finally visit the east coast.....

If there was a 'Restore Sanity' day in London, I would go. I'd even bring some cake :-)

One has to wonder where all these calls for sanity were during the previous administration, the head of which did not ban people from the country for insulting him. Just sayin'.

This put me in such a good mood. I was starting to become very depressed with the insistent blather about America devolving into a godless, socialist, Kenyan, Muslim dictatorship (or something like that). Stewart and Colbert are some of the greatest comic voices ever...right up there with Swift, Voltaire, Twain, Bruce, Pryor, and Carlin.

  1. Do you really think that the President had any kind of personal hand in this? It's more likely that he never read the thing.

  2. I don't see what you mean by 'for insulting him.' We have no idea what was said in the e-mail. Looking at more than that ABC article, the FBI simply claims it was threatening and Angel himself claims he doesn't remember. The fact that the screeners work through plenty of 'insulting' e-mails every day suggests that there was quite a lot more to this. If he was as fucked out of his mind as he claims, it's pretty easy to imagine how unstable it probably seemed.

I love Stewart and Colbear, but in all honesty Stewart seems to have the real smarts and Colbert is just a supreme satirist/comedian. As tongue in cheek as those Stewart/Colbert bumper stickers are, I'd love to see Stewart enter politics.

Comment 15 by KRKBAB That's interesting, I had the opposite impression. Stewart can seem very deferential to authority figures at times, particularly those in the military.

Some of the signage suggestions from Allusive Atheist blog:

-Willful ignorance is still ignorance

-Wishful thinking is the substance of things hoped for

-It is only by faith that we may be fooled

-Keep Jefferson in the text books

-Texas School Board, America is ashamed of you

-Stop shouting… um, please?

-GOD HATES CRABS (leviticus 11:12)

-He was all like “Yahweh!” and I was like “No way.”

-No reasonable person ever called me “heathen”
