Move over, Glenn Beck.Good luck, kids. Just remember you have to be home by dark.
The Internet is clamoring for another massive rally at the Lincoln Memorial, but this time, the people want to see Stephen Colbert speak.
Colbert fans have launched a viral movement lobbying the comedian to host an event rivaling the Fox host’s recent "Restoring Honor" rally.
Promoting it with the tagline "Restoring Truthiness,” Colbert supporters have created a website, Facebook group, and even designed posters for the proposed rally.
They've also successfully infiltrated Google Trends, where "Restoring Truthiness" is currently entrenched among the top 10 list of the day's most popular Internet searches.
The movement now boasts more than 8,000 fans on Facebook, and advertises itself as “Operation Strike of Truthiness!” on its website www.colbertrally.com, which features a prominent image of George Bush in front of the infamous “Mission Accomplished” banner.
"America, we are at a crossroad," the site reads. "Truthiness in this nation is at an all-time low since the inception of the concept was founded by the great American, Stephen Colbert.
"Our goal is simple: Petition Stephen Colbert to hold a Restoring Truthiness Rally for the American people."
Colbert, whose show is based around his over-the-top TV persona as a wildly conservative pundit, once introduced the word "truthiness" during a tongue-in-cheek segment mocking dictionaries and facts.
"We are divided between those who think with their head and those who think with their heart," he said. "Anyone can read the news to you. I promise to feel the news at you."
The "Restoring Truthiness" movement was sparked by a post on Reddit, the Huffington Post reports, which begged Colbert to host an event satirizing the Tea Party movement.
"I know you're out there somewhere, Stephen," the original post read. "We need you. There's no way to have a logical public discussion with the teabaggers. The best we can do is mimic them."

Hipster Doofuses Promote 'Restoring Truthiness'
For bunch who consider themselves so hip and cutting edge, it's rather amusing seeing these lefty twits constantly playing catch-up these days. Seems the only way they'll be able to keep turnout down on November 2 is if we all die laughing at these morons. Who knew Glenn Beck's gathering a couple of weeks ago would leave the left such a quivering mess?
