Rally car crash video

The world of rally racing isn’t one for the faint of heart. Hitting bends at break-neck speeds is sketchy enough on pavement, but add gravel and snow to that mix and you’ve got disaster waiting to happen. Here's an example. The drivers name is Crazy Leo (with a name like that you can expect something ridiculous to happen.) In this video, Leo hits a pole at full-throttle, and somehow still places second in this race. Check it out.

Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert Restore Sanity

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Specials, Cable, Daily Show, The, Video,


Despite the fact that Comedy Central’s Rally was thrown together in only a few weeks, and the fact that it revolved around two late night cable TV hosts, estimates show that more than a quarter million Americans flooded the National Mall for a dose of sanity … and/or fear.

The three-hour event was peppered with filler: a “special appearance” from the MythBusters hosts; musical performances by Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow, among others; even a long-winded benediction from former SNL regular “Father” Guido Sarducci -- but there were a few moments of sincerity mixed in with all the comedy.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, who approached the rally with typically opposite points of view, faced off against each other in brief skits that felt a lot like a live, daytime version of their late-night talk shows, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report -- but somewhere in the middle of it all, a message did manage to shine through. Stewart’s “moment of sincerity,” his wrap-up speech, is viewable in the video above … and it’s definitely worth a watch.

As he stood before the crowd of 250,000 thousand (or, as he announced when he made his entrance, “over 10 million people,” depending on which estimate you use), Jon Stewart reminded the world that “We live not in hard times ... not end times.”

Daily Show Full Episodes Political Humor Rally to Restore Sanity

The Queen of daytime had a gift for two of late night’s Princes (okay…jesters) on Thursday night. Comedy Central host Jon Stewart started his Daily Show with the usual jokes regarding the day’s events…but he was soon interrupted by channel-mate Stephen Colbert.

After some ribbing (Stewart) and cajoling (Colbert), the two announced that they will be combining rallies. That’s right: The "Rally to Restore Sanity" and The "March to Keep Fear Alive" have merged to create The "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.” Seeing the two of them on center stage was great fun, but they were soon trumped by someone with more clout than the they both have combined.

Moldavan Rally via Twitter

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cell Phones, Internet,

MoldovaThis is proof positive that Twitter is more than stuff and nonsense. Moldovans were using the social messaging network to create a rally in response to Sunday’s election result and poor economy. Using Facebook and the tag “#pman,” which stands for Piata Marii Adunari Nationale, a large square in the capital city Chisinau, more than 10,000 gathered. The rally was considered to be “well designed, well thought out, coordinated, planned and paid for.”  The protests began quietly on Monday, but escalated into stone throwing and fires until dispersed on Tuesday.

Secret Service Agent Says “Kill Him” Allegatons Not True

Posted by Sal Traina Categories: Editorials, Elections, Media,

media bias

“Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.”

The agent in charge of the Secret Service at the Sarah Palin rally, says that the New York Times report about someone yelling “kill him” is unfounded. Think about it. Barack Obama is the Democratic Candidate for President Of The United States. If someone shouted “kill him,” you sure as hell know that someone’s going to be in a lot of trouble.
