The Rally to Restore Sanity in Pictures: Arianna's Bus to Magicland

Did you have things to do this weekend? Such as go to work, or perhaps rally to help get out the vote in tomorrow's election, for instance? If you didn't make it down to D.C. for the non-political political comedian rally, our photographer Stephen Kosloff shows you what you missed—including Arianna Huffington learning for presumably the first time about transportation by bus. In the immortal words of the Huff herself, let the [PICTURES!] [SLIDESHOW!] begin!

Stephen Kosloff is a photographer in New York.

I see white people.

C'mon, there was that one guy in the Packers helmet. And the Obama cutout.

While the crowd was obviously mostly white, I saw a far few people who weren't.

What do you expect them to do since “Air America” went off the air?

Here's is an actual earnest question. Will somebody please tell me what this rally was supposed to demonstrate? That there are moderates in the country? Because I knew that without this political celebrity festival. I guess I want to know, what's the message that I, Joe Sixpack am supposed to take away from what seems like a couple of comedians doing political theater?

I don't know, those MythBusters guys performed some really good IRL viral memes.

doncha know, Jon Stewart is emerging from inside the cable news machine to tell us the cable news machine is Bad For Us. And now, for some cross-promotion on Bill O'Reilly….

I think that part of the point was the fact that this country is not mainly full of crazy people (tea baggers etc) and also that the 24-7 cable news media is so full of hysterical shit its eyes are turning brown.

And perhaps to give DC its monthly reminder that the public transportation in this city is total shit.

The point of the rally was to push back against the hysterics that have become the norm in our political discourse.

The closest I got to the rally was the Brookland stop, but in classic metro style, the trains running every 15 minutes were already packed to the gills.

This is the first photo I've seen of the "Save Our Bluths" sign. Hooray for dated Arrested Development references!

People were actually getting on the orange line and going west out to Vienna so they could sit and wait for the train to turn around and come back into the city. I went to a bar.

TOUR WORLD is the best world.

These photos rule.

Any day without Ariana Huffington is a good day.

the moderate left sure is sexier than the extreme right, so there's that.
