The Best Moments From Jon Stewart's 'Rally to Restore Sanity'This weekend, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert held their 'Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear' (Sat., 12PM ET on Comedy Central). The rally was a counterpart to Glenn Beck's 'Restoring Honor' march, held a few months back.

The goal was to share political views in an inoffensive manner. Moderation was the ideal; Stewart showed video clips of media figures (such as Mr. Beck) who supposedly used polarizing speech.

Since the event was hosted by comedians, the whole thing was a joke -- or was it? A bunch of celebs attended, including Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock, and Sheryl Crow.

Will Stephen Colbert Hold a 'Restoring Truthiness' Rally?Two weeks ago, Fox News host Glenn Beck held a "Restoring Honor" rally in Washington D.C. It's hard to say how well the event went. At one point, Beck claimed that 1.7 million people showed up; other estimates put the crowd at around 87,000 people. (Which is a pretty big disparity.)

But no matter how well or how poorly the rally went, one thing is clear: Stephen Colbert likes attention just as much as Glenn Beck does. Now, the question is -- will Colbert stage a rally of his own?
