Jon Stewart's Big Stupid Rally May Really Hurt Democrats, Say... Democrats

Funnyman.

But the planned event has also produced a bit of hand-wringing among Democrats. For one thing, Stewart hasn't mentioned that labor groups and other institutional Democratic organizations are already planning a big Washington rally to counter Beck: The One America rally on October 2, which has been struggling to get the kind of attention Beck does.

Okay, well, who cares? The union just pays people to come down to these things. They don't need press. (Okay, they don't pay people to come down so much as they extract money from employers and also their own members to pay people to go these things.)

But it gets better:

And the Stewart rally is also, for Democratic field operatives, at an inconvenient time: Its participants are "not doing GOTV on GOTV weekend" said Matt Ortega, a former DNC staffer, referring to a weekend typically spent knocking on doors and making calls in one's home district, not Washington.
