In light of Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally in D.C. a few weeks back, the Internet has decided that an event of equal faux-importance should take place this fall — but with Stephen Colbert leading the charge.

Called "Restoring Truthiness", organizers are calling on the host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" to step up and show that politics shouldn’t always be taken so seriously.

"America, we are at a crossroad," says the website ColbertRally. "Truthiness in this nation is at an all-time low since the inception of the concept was founded by the great American, Stephen Colbert. In its rich history over the past five years, Truthiness has become synonymous with American values such as freedom, honor, and Taco Bell. Recently our nation has suffered a truthiness drain."

The idea for the rally initially started when a Reddit user posted a comment urging Colbert to do something in D.C. to show the tea party just how ridiculous they are. "Think about it," mrsammercer said. "It'll be just like Colbert's mockery of GW Bush at the 2006 White House Correspondent's Dinner, but 500,000 people will be able to participate with him. We'll all stay totally in character as teabaggers."

Now, not only is there an official website — but there's also a Facebook page (100,000 Strong to Restore Truthiness) with over 32,000 members and a rapidly growing Twitter campaign.

Of course, the most important piece of the puzzle — whether Colbert will go along with the idea — has yet to be decided. The 46-year-old is currently on vacation.

Stay tuned, Nation — and in the meantime, check out the video below.
