The Spokane version of Jon Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity" will feature comedian Paula Poundstone Saturday, organizers said.
Poundstone is in Spokane for a couple of shows. Organizers asked her to come by Riverfront Park for the event. She said yes.
The rally is Stewart's send-up of the Glenn Beck gathering at the Lincoln Memorial last August. Groups around the country (including Spokane Democrats) are sponsoring their local versions.
The Spokane rally is at noon, apparently designed to give participants a chance to watch the D.C. version (which starts at 9 a.m. Pacific) on the tube before heading downtown.
Still unclear: Just when did we have this sanity folks are talking about restoring?
