President Obama To Appear On The Daily Show

In light of the Tea Party culture of ignorance which is dominating politics this year, Jon Stewart is trying to respond to apathy among the rational portion of the electorate. He is holding his “Rally to Restore Sanity” on the National Mall on October 30th. It has now been announced that Barack Obama will appear on The Daily Show three days before the event:

President Obama plans to appear on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show” shortly before the midterm elections, a senior White House official tells CBS News, in what will be his first appearance on the show since becoming president.

The appearance will be on Wednesday October 27th. It comes shortly before both the November 2nd midterm elections as well as host Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” on the National Mall on October 30th.

The president has been trying to rally the sort of young voters who watch Stewart’s show to come out to vote in the midterm elections amid signs that they are less enthusiastic than they were two years ago. Democrats are trying to hold the House and Senate amid predictions of a potential wave election for Republicans, and among his campaign stops in the midterm cycle have been appearances at college campuses.

While he has appeared on the show as a candidate, this will be Obama’s first appearance as president.

    I am confident that this rally will be underestimated by the major media or given very little attention whatsoever.
