Stephen Colbert – ‘Restoring Truthiness’ Rally – Spoof of Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ – Why It’ll Happen!
Will Stephen Colbert have a rally of his own called “Restoring Truthiness?” Colbert is hinting that it may happen. “Restoring Truthiness” will spoof Glenn Beck’s recent rally but can Stephen Colbert do it? More importantly, how funny will it be?
According to the Huffington Post, the campaign for Colbert to have his own rally started with a post on Reddit. The post became a website that added Facebook. Now, with 8,000 members, they want Stephen Colbert to lead a rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial!
If anyone can do it, Colbert can. Not only is he a funny guy but he has tons of fans and a rally like “Restoring Truthiness” will surely get massive media attention and endless laughs!
According to the website:
“Restoring Truthiness is a true grassroots movement propelled by YOU, the citizens of the internetz. Our goal is simple: Petition Stephen Colbert to hold a Restoring Truthiness Rally for the American people.”
One has to wonder if Colbert didn’t think of this himself. His satirical take on politics, on the Stephen Colbert Show has done enough spoofs so “Restoring Truthiness” would be no different! So, will he do it or not? It’s safe to say when it comes to Colbert, expect the unexpected!
