9/3/2010 – 6:00PM PST: Thank you America for another great day of truthiness. Today we had another day of well over 20,000 30,000 visits and 10,000 facebook shares. Thank you for keeping truthiness alive! Going into the weekend, here is a short script a real patriot wrote called “The Most Truthiest Man In The World”. If you are inspired, and want to add on to the bit, or even make a video, you will win 1000 internets. Also, we are still accepting American-Made art work. Stay Truthy, My Friends!

9/3/2010 – 12:15PM PST: UPDATE: We are currently combing through hundreds of volunteer e-mails. Please be patient with us, we are also hard working Americans with jobs – well at least for today. We despise the Frenchy idea of ‘Labor Day weekend’ and will be dedicating efforts, all weekend, to plan events and ideas that will involve all restorers and supporters of Truthiness in preparation for the return of Stephen Colbert on Tuesday. If you have no life, no family, or if the word “labor day” just sounds too commie for you, join us (support@colbertrally.com). Thank You for all your support and remember to “Stay Truthy my friends!”

    Oh, yeah?

    Well I ain’t afraid of you OR your March to Keep Fear Alive rally. I awready got my bus ticket (courtesy of Arianna Huffington :) for the March to Keep Sanity Alive … or whatever the heck that OTHER rally is called … SO THERE! Put that in your Truthiness Pipe and smoke it.
    (It’s obvious from the way you tawk that you’re smoking something!)

    FYI, I’ve been to OZ and have finally gotten some COURAGE, so please ignore my former fearfilled comments!
