Restoring Sanity?  Or Restoring Liberalism?

Yesterday saw 200,000 people or more attend Jon Stewart’s and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity.

I don’t think there’s any deep meaning to it—Allahpundit called it Irony-Stock, which seems as good a name as any.  I find it disconcerting that they invited Cat Stevens, who supported that Fatwah against Salman Rushdie.  I’m sure it was fun—certainly a lot more fun than listening to one of Rush’s or Hannity’s latest (and increasingly boring) rants about Obama destroying America.  But let’s not confuse with it substance.

I did have a few scattered thoughts, however.  Not so much on the rally itself but on the whole idea of “restoring sanity” to our politics
