stephen-colbert-jon-stewart-rally-to-restore-sanity-gi-500.jpgTens of thousands crowded the National Mall in Washington, DC on a sunny Saturday (Oct. 30) to participate in Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.

The Comedy Central pundits held the rally to encourage reasonable political thinking and voter participation in the upcoming Nov. 2 midterm elections. The response was overwhelming. Fans gathered from across the country, carrying signs that reflected the cheekiness of the host/organizers. Signs read "This is a good sign," "Don't hate me because I'm rational" and "Somewhat irritated about extreme outrage."

The rally included a slew of celebrities either making cameos or performing. Here are a few random moments from the rally.

1. Sing it

Although the musical performers ranged from Sheryl Crow and John Legend to Tony Bennett and Ozzy Osbourne, the big surprise was a comical song from Colbert and Stewart that include lines like "From gay men who love football to straight men who like 'Glee.'" Stewart, obviously struggling a bit with his new calling, later apologized, "Sorry you had to hear me sing. You'll never have to do it again."
