'Sanity' supporters flocking to Washington

Washington (CNN) - Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will hold the "Rally to Restore Sanity" and the "March to Keep Fear Alive" on the National Mall on Saturday, with thousands expected to flood in from across the country.

The event comes months after conservative Fox News host Glenn Beck held a "Rally to Restore Honor" in Washington, in which thousands of conservatives and Tea Party faithful attended.

While Stewart has insisted that the rally is not a result of Beck's march, the event's Web pages appear to copy the look of Beck's event, and many say it's a direct response to Beck's often-controversial comments.

    Count me in. Tired of the extremes taking the voice of America. We are diverse and get along despite what Fox tries to push us.

    GET THERE PEOPLE!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! The world thinks that we've lost our minds; the country needs healing. The media isn't helping.
    Change of any kind starts one person at a time! Stop talking, and complaining and start driving to D.C.
    Let's show the world the UNITED States of America in all it's colorful and beautiful glory!!!
