Comedy Central Mobile Goes To DC With Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert

Comedy Central is covering all the promo bases for the Rally To Restore Sanity and the March to Keep Fear Alive, including the ultimate accessory — a free iPhone app designed as a companion for Saturday’s DC field trip with Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart. The expected items are there — a *Google* Map, ways to connect Facebook or Twitter, a FAQ. It comes with a few extras, too:

the promise of a special message Saturday from their fearful/fearless leaders, Foursquare check ins for “fear” or for “sanity” (you don’t have to be in DC), a way to send pictures directly from the iPhone to a Rally stream, and embedded browser pages for donations to the Trust for the National Mall or DonorsChoose. (If you want to drive a right-thinking relative crazy, the photos get their own special Rally frames.)

For those who aren’t going but want to drop in virtually, Comedy Central is offering it online and on iPad, iPhone or Android 2.2 devices. The latter also should work for those on site without good sight lines.

    Thank you J. Stewart and S. Colbert and Comedy Central. It was a rally that was as antiWoodstock nuttiness as befits today’s crazy world of hysteria. The only item missing was the failure to insist (either in written or oral terms) the promise that all the registered voters should vote on Tuesday. And to discuss why many people refuse to register to be honest Americans (with the right to complain, of course).
