Fans of Comedy Central's resident faux-servative Stephen Colbert have taken to the internets in a drive to organize a "Restoring Truthiness" rally on October 10, 2010 -- that's 101010:
What: It's time to Restore Truthiness to America!
When: TBA (Ask Stephen Colbert)
Why: America, we are at a crossroad. Truthiness in this nation is at an all-time low since the inception of the concept was founded by the great American, Stephen Colbert. In its rich history over the past five years, Truthiness has become synonymous with American values such as freedom, honor, and Taco Bell. Recently our nation has suffered a truthiness drain. In fact, untruthiness is as common as measles vaccinations that cause cancer. We as a nation have stopped relying on our emotions and gut. We need to get back to what makes this nation great. Act on impulse not fact. Stop wasting time analyzing and just take what people say on face value. Why think when someone else can think for you. It's superficial. It's quick. It's American. Restore Truthiness now!
