Morning Newsdome: Jon Stewart to march on Washington

Jon Stewart
>> In what must be a reaction to Glenn Beck's march on Washington, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart will hold "The Rally to Restore Sanity" in DC on October 30 with pre-made signs like "9/11 was an outside job" and "I Disagree With You But I'm Pretty Sure You're Not Hitler." The Colbert Report's Stephen Colbert will be leading the "March to Keep Fear Alive" at the same time. That's pretty brilliant to manage your own opposing rally, but it'll be less fun reading signs that actually make sense/have correct spelling. (the New York Times)

>> Five Algerian men in the UK were taken into custody this morning for suspicion of threat to Pope Benedict XVI while visiting Britain. The plot is thought to have originated overseas. When terrorism starts acting up, Pope, stay in the Pope-mobile! (Sky News)

>> New York City high school teacher Theophilus Burroughs sold weapons to Hamas and Hezbollah informants to earn extra money and encouraged blowing up a police station or Jewish community center. So what happened when this armed mo-fo was arrested by police? Burroughs wet his pants. (the New York Post)

>> The Census Bureau reported that one in seven Americans are now living in poverty, the highest numbers of working-age poor since the 1960s. Is it worse to be poor then or now, it's hard to say. (the Washington Post)

>> And finally: Meat dress-wearing Lady Gaga has turned her 6.3 million Twitter followers (she's the most followed person on Twitter) against Arizona Sen. John McCain for trying to filibuster the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" Tuesday vote. Say what you will about Gaga, but Britney Spears never encouraged her fans to be politically active. (Twitter)
