I’ve heard some people claim that the Rally To Restore Sanity was merely a work of entertainment with no real political significance.  It was not.  I have not, in my short lifetime, seen so many non-radicals gather in one place to express how fed up they are with the status quo in this country.  I grant that it will change nothing overnight, and it will not by itself cause the slate to be wiped clean.  But, as Colbert would say, the market has spoken:

At Saturday’s Rally to Restore Sanity in Washington, Stewart slammed opinion news networks like Fox News and MSNBC for lowering the level of public discourse….Now, the “Daily Show” host appears to have claimed another scalp: MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann announced Monday night on “Countdown” that he’s “unilaterally suspending” the show’s “Worst Persons in the World” segment, “with an eye towards discontinuing it.”
