I couldn’t make this up. Comedy Central arch enemies Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are planning competing rallies in Washington on October 30.

Stewart admitted that it was a twist of fate, since he would already be in Washington, with “The Daily Show” taping there Oct. 25-28

Not to be outdone, Colbert followed up with an announcement on his own show, urging his viewers to also assemble “because now is not the time to take it down a notch. Now is the time for all good men to freak out for freedom.”

Both announcements come on the heels of Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally that took place this year on the anniversary of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic speech at the same monument.
