Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart plan rallies on National Mall
Stewart, host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," is promoting a "Rally to Restore Sanity" on Oct. 30 for people too busy with their normal lives to go to other political rallies.
Nearby, Colbert is promoting a "March to Keep Fear Alive." The host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" is encouraging participants to bring an overnight bag and five extra sets of underwear.
National Park Service spokesman Bill Line says the two have filed a single application for a permit to host 25,000 people on the mall. It hasn't been approved yet.
