TTN Slideshow: Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in Washington, D.C.

Slideshow by TTN photographer Rachael Cerrotti More than two-hundred thousand people flooded the National Mall in Washington DC on Oct. 30 for John Stewart and Stephen Colbert's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear. The satirists' rally brought together a variety of people from across the country with the same fed-up mentality over the political situation in the United States. In the spirit of Halloween, many came in costumes (most being political). Other participants marched around, proud to hold their homemade signs that reflected some of their most frustrated feelings over happenings in American government. Overall, the mentality of the crowd remained peaceful amongst the participants. People were in good spirits and seemed relieved that so many people in the country shared their aggravated emotions.
