Stewart, Colbert follow in Beck's footsteps

(CNN) - Two Comedy Central funnymen are apparently entering into the partisan political fray with rallies of their own in the nation's capital.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have set October 30 as the date for their respective rallies.

Stewart dubbed the event a "clarion call for rationality."
