Last night Arianna Huffington appeared on The Daily Show and made a rather dramatic offer right off the bat, pledge to provide bus service to anyone interested in attending Jon Stewart‘s Rally To Restore Sanity from the Soho offices of Huffington Post. The bit was pretty clearly worked out in advance of the interview, but is still a rather shocking obligation pledged by Ms. Huffington. When Stewart expressed surprise, Arianna coolly offered “I’ll worry about logistics,” in a way that reminded the viewer of her overall competence.
HuffPost covered the announcement but added little details to the logistics:
Stewart has described the event as “Woodstock, but with the nudity and drugs replaced by respectful disagreement.” As of Tuesday, a Facebook page dedicated to the rally shows that over 170,000 people have committed to attend.
Details of the HuffPost Sanity Bus are still in the works, but you can sign up below to participate. As soon as we know more, we’ll alert you via email.
A Twitter feed has been set up, appropriately named “HuffPostBus”
