Stewart and Colbert plan DC Rally; South Carolina plots preemptive counter-protest

William Moultrie reports on a counter demonstration at the

Columbia – In an emergency conference call, a hastily assembled coalition of South Carolina’s politicians, bloggers, newspaper reporters, strategists, and inmates crafted plans to protest a newly announced rally by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
The Rally to Preemptively Restore Honor to South Carolina will be held on the same day as the Stewart/Colbert rally, October 30, but due to National Park Service rules about overlapping events, the South Carolina rally will begin at 4 a.m.
“We’ll be all be meeting at the corner of South Carolina Ave. and Independence Ave. and carpooling to the Lincoln Memorial,” said U.S. Senate Candidate Alvin Greene, who was asked to publicize and organize the event because of his proven method of  frugal yet effective campaigning. “We picked that location for symbolic reasons, but unfortunately we didn’t realize how far it would be to walk from there to the mall, so please call me if you’re planning on driving and you have a bus or minivan.”
The preliminary speaking list includes:
  • Governor Mark “Hiking the Trail” Sanford
  • Lt. Governor André “Don’t Feed the Poor” Bauer
  • Former Treasurer Thomas “convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine” Ravenel
  • Former State School Board chair Kristin “alleged erotic fiction author” Maguire
  • Sen. Jim “Drink the Koolaid” DeMint
  • Sen. Lindsey “Goes both ways (on political issues)” Graham
  • Rep. Joe “YOU LIE!” Wilson
  • Former Rep. Arthur “NAACP = Nat. Assn. of Retarded People” Ravenel
  • State Sen. Nikki “So transparent you see right through her” Haley
  • State Sen. Jakie “Nikki’s a raghead” Knotts
  • U.S. Senate Candidate Alvin “I did too campaign” Greene
  • Dr. George “I was trying to fix the gay kid” Rekers
  • Kaitlin “Miss Teen South Carolina” Upton
Maybe we should have let them secede.


  1. Good day Larry,

    I learned something I didn’t know before reading your blog post about the Colbert/Stewart political rally. I never knew a South Carolina state rally was also occuring that day, and due to the talk show hosts rallies, the SC rally will have to be pushed to 4AM. I’m intrigued to find out if the Colbert/Stewart rally will give a stronger audience to the SC rally. Regardless, I thought this video may be of interest to you:

    I believe this video would be a nice addition to your blog post so it gives more detail and information about the Colbert/Stewart rally. By posting this video, it’s like posting several links to different stories since the video takes pieces from multiple sources. I really hope this video helps you, especially since you like posting articles and news pieces about politics. I would also encourage you to check out the Newsy website at to see if there’s anything else that looks interesting. I think the Colbert/Stewart rallies will be a huge topic in the media leading up to mid-terms, so it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on.

    Take care,


  2. Check out the link at I think this was a tongue in cheek post.

  3. We did secede and we may just do it again.

  4. Yup. That worked out real well for us.
