Colbert Fans Call for Glenn Beck-Style Rally to Restore Truthiness
It’s hard to know if this is a Comedy Central stunt. Whatever. It’s brilliant.
Stephen Colbert fans are calling on the satirist - who lampoons all things conservative on his Comedy Central talk show - to mimic Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” event by holding a Truthiness (see here for the definition) rally at the foot of Lincoln Memorial on October 10, 2010 - conveniently 10/10/10.

Why: America, we are at a crossroad. Truthiness in this nation is at an all-time low since the inception of the concept was founded by the great American, Stephen Colbert. In its rich history over the past five years, Truthiness has become synonymous with American values such as freedom, honor, and Taco Bell. Recently our nation has suffered a truthiness drain. In fact, untruthiness is as common as measles vaccinations that cause cancer. We as a nation have stopped relying on our emotions and gut. We need to get back to what makes this nation great. Act on impulse not fact. Stop wasting time analyzing and just take what people say on face value. Why think when someone else can think for you. It’s superficial. It’s quick. It’s American. Restore Truthiness now!

Already, some are suggesting that Tina Fey should put in an appearance as Sarah Palin.
Comedy Central is clearly amused. They’re promoting the idea on their website.

The Internet Rallies for Colbert Rally
After Glenn Beck’s big Restoring Honor Rally, rallies in Washington DC are so hot right now. They’re basically the new auto-tuned Antoine Dodson or the current Farting Ewok Falls Down Stairs, which is slated to be an unexpected phenomenon the third week of September. It’s with that in mind that a Reddit user has suggested Stephen Colbert hold his own rally in Washington to restore truthiness in America. The movement is rapidly gaining support with a website and a Facebook page, which is surprising since it doesn’t appear to have anything to do with Betty White.
Cobert mocks Beck’s peculiar brand of megalomania:
