Intersting, when the "right has a rally, it blows up the boards here on the ATS. However when the left does it, eh, no big deal, the double standard continues as always....no news here, just more he said she said from the left.
This is not a rally "from the left". Neither Stewart or Colbert are representing any political party or ideology. Maybe you think of them as being "from the left" because they are intelligent and don't use folksy language?
Elaborate on why this is a double standard. I suspect your logic makes no sense.

How far can satire go as a political movement? I guess we will find out on 10/30/10. For that matter could Glen Beck be interpreted as satire?
You seem satisfied with the official story...good for you.

Stewart and Colbert are nothing more than Beck wannabe's.
Both choosing the same day to draw pitiful numbers. Just trying to have someone show up in an attempt to mock the new political reality in America,
If you can't beat the message, you try to mock it to make it look sinister or stupid. These guys are playing both cards at once.
Truly pathetic how far these guys are going to imitate Beck and his message.

Can I give you a bit of a european perspective on whether Beck gets more viewers than either Colbert or Stewart.
I had never heard or seen Mr Beck on my TV until he was brought to my attention by ATS, Fox doesn't have a main news channel in Europe. We have Sky instead which is owned by the same group.
On the other hand Jon Stewart has the daily show global edition on CNN & Comedy Central has hosted numerous awards shows like the Oscars and is pretty well known on this side of the pond
