Presented without comment, some of the slogans seen on signs at the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" on the Mall in Washington today:

"Keep Big Government Out of my Cauldron." (showing Christine O'Donnell as a witch.)

"If you want to be me, be me. And if you want to be you, be you. Or, if you want to be a witch, that's OK, too!"

"I doubt this sign will change your opinion."

"I won't tread on you if you don't stomp on me."

"The status quo sucks."
