What's a DC rally without its own app?

Now-a-days you can't do anything without an app, right? So if you are putting on a giant rally in Washington DC, and especially if its two main protagonists are comedians, the event needs its own iPhone app.
So in the spirit of the age, MTV Networks, the parent of Comedy Central, have released an iPhone app just in time for tomorrow's Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear -- starring, of course, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

(What? No Android app! Sounds like a political statement to me -- or maybe not.)

The rally, which is expected to draw upwards of three billion people (DC police estimate), will no doubt be a rousing success thanks to the Huffington Post requisitioning all school busses east of the Mississippi. Fox News promises full coverage which will be easy since they use the same footage in every rally report.

By the way, this is the 50th iPhone app released by MTV Networks. They also have six iPad apps, as well.
