Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear drew tens of thousands to the National Mall in Washington DC yesterday and hundreds of thousands to the event’s live broadcasts on TV and online. Among the highlights: Colbert’s big entrance from his “fear bunker” via a capsule like the one used in the Chilean miners’ rescue, Stewart’s closing Moment of Sincerity, which produced the most sound bites from the event such as “We live now in hard times, not end times” and “If we amplify everything, we hear nothing.” Sandwiched between them were bits that, as Stewart self-deprecatingly said “some would classify as comedy” that mixed comedy, silliness and some poignant moments. Here are some of the most memorable skits:
